Critique is so limiting and emotionally draining.
Bad news for anyone still plagued by visions of a quietly terrifying Jake Gyllenhaal from 2014's Nightcrawler: the actor has teamed up once again with writer-director Dan Gilroy and co-star Rene Russo for what looks to be an equally dark and unnerving thriller.
Gyllenhaal stars as esteemed art critic Morf Vandewalt, who finds himself shaken from art scene ennui by the discovery of the collected works of a dead man who left behind no friends or family. As LA's gallery scene grows more enamored with the art, it starts to come to life—before taking the lives of its collectors.
Check out the official trailer. But maybe check under the bed first.
