Believe it or not, the upcoming Netflix series Unbelievable is not a limited series about the making of the ultra-catchy 1991 earworm of the same name by EMF. The series actually covers far more serious subject matter: it tells the true story of a young woman who claims she’s been raped, and when officers accuse her of making up the story, two female investigators take her seriously and learn that the rapist has struck before. Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) plays the young woman, and Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever play the investigators who finally begin to put the pieces together. Read More »

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ Trailer: Jake Gyllenhaal Reteams With ‘Nightcrawler’ Director Dan Gilroy for a Literal Arthouse Horror
Posted on Thursday, January 10th, 2019 by Hoai-Tran Bui
Five years ago we saw how truly weird and dark Jake Gyllenhaal could get when he teamed up with writer-director Dan Gilroy for the twisted 2014 thriller Nightcrawler, which gave a thought-provoking condemnation of the ambulance-chasing tabloid industry.
Now, Gyllenhaal, Gilroy, and Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo reunite for what looks to be a darkly satirical indictment of yet another niche field: the contemporary art world. Velvet Buzzsaw is a horror-thriller starring Gyllenhaal as a pretentious art critic who soon becomes targeted by killer art pieces. Yes, you read that right. See the first Velvet Buzzsaw trailer below.
