The horror movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Toni Collette.

When Netflix released "Bird Box" starring Sandra Bullock in December, it was a huge hit. All anyone could talk about was the apocalyptic horror movie.

On Friday, Feb. 1, the streaming service will release a new thriller for viewers to obsess over. Will it be the new "Bird Box"?

"Velvet Buzzsaw," where paintings by an unknown artist wreak havoc, certainly has all the makings of a must-watch Netflix horror movie. 

1. It's packed with Hollywood legends and rising stars.

The biggest name attached to the movie is Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays art dealer Morf Vandewalt. He stars alongside a large ensemble cast including Toni Collette, John Malkovich (also in "Bird Box"), Rene Russo, Zawe Ashton, Tom Sturridge and Natalia Dyer.

2. The director has scared us before.

Director Dan Gilroy, Gyllenhaal and Russo have teamed up again for the first time since they worked together on 2014's super-creepy "Nightcrawler." The movie got an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay, and was a hit with audiences.

3. It looks truly terrifying.

Yes, the mysterious force that made people kill themselves in "Bird Box" was spooky, but paintings coming to life and attacking people is next-level scary.

Watch the trailer below and get excited for the release.
