‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ mashes up L.A. art scene, horror into strange picture

The title “Velvet Buzzsaw” proves oddly descriptive, capturing the dual nature of a movie that’s a lacerating satire of the L.A. art world and a “The Twilight Zone”-like horror tale all at once. That latter point of reference proves key, as the movie labors to pay off its premise, delivering not much more than an amusing stroll through its gallery of over-the-top characters.
