Screener Squad: Velvet Buzzsaw

Dan Gilroy is the latest big name director to sign up with Netflix for an exclusive film and it’s finally here, his much-anticipated art world skewering/horror film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Toni Collette, Daveed Diggs, John Malkovich, and more. The simple break-down is, when a gallery employee finds a treasure trove of outsider art by a dead neighbor with no family, the art world jumps all over it. But what they don’t know is the art is possessed by the spirit of the dead guy (I guess) and possessing it will lead to your supernatural death. Ok, that sounds dumb, and yeah, it IS dumb, but it’s not the horror stuff that makes Velvet Buzzsaw so watchable. Listen to Chris, Johnny, Michael, and Aaron give their review.
