Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Velvet Buzzsaw is a great title in need of an equally great film. Okay that’s a bit unfair – Velvet Buzzsaw isn’t terrible. But it is pretty average in the whole, another Netflix original letdown. Filmmaker Dan Gilroy , who made the rather excellent Nightcrawler, tackles a more straight up horror here. Sadly whilst the central idea is good, the film isn’t that scary. It’s also not that bloody and whilst the cast seem to be having fun, you just cant help but think that if they had dialled it up to 11 it could have been something quite special.
Best Bit: Truck Stop
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (Netflix)
If You Liked this Try: Nightcrawler, Society, Mother!
