Green Room (2015) Review

Green Room (2015) is an American horror crime-thriller that is 94 minutes long and was filmed in Oregon, USA. Director and writer Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin (2013), Murder Party (2007), Crabwalk (2004)) did an astonishing job executing his script. Jeremy is a writer/director that horror fans should look out for because he has amazing talents behind the camera and pen that gives horror fans what they actually want to watch. Jeremy did an excellent job with not over complicating the story by including one twist and filming the movie in a way that makes us the viewer feel every death scene. Green Room contains incredibly realistic graphic violence, brutal, gory graphic images, bad language, drug use, survival horror, killer dog, neo-nazi, suspense, thrills, frightening scenes, and murders.

Green Room began by showing us a punk band that is named Ain’t Rights being stood up by a promoter when the venue was not available. The promoter is hung strung on getting a gig for the struggling band and got them a gig with the Nazis. Pat (Anton Yelchin - Star Trek (2009), Terminator Salvation (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), Fright Night (2011)) is one of the band members. Pat thought it would be funny to open up the show with a song titled “Nazi Punks F*** Off” and lucky for them that they did not get into trouble. Sam (Alia Shawkat - Arrested Development (2003), Three Kings (1999), Whip It (2009), Ruby Sparks (2012)) forgot her phone in the green room. Pam decides to get the phone and unexpectedly walks into a murder scene leading the band to be held captive, and as that was not bad enough, they soon learned that an order was given to leave no witness alive. The band, as you can imagine, became frantic as they are about to die.

I was distraught that the group was put in such a terrible situation and was rooting for them to escape but will they? The death scenes will not be taken lightly by most viewers as they made my stomach do flips after flips. Be prepared to see arms being chopped, stomach being sliced open with guts spillage, shredded throats of dogs and other stomach-churning encounters. The sound department did an excellent job with the sound as it flowed well with every scene and did I mention that it was a little sad**tic. There was not a shortage of violence as it was lurking at every corner. All of the actors did a fantastic job with their roles which help the movie to receive a score of eight. I would recommend this film to horror fans but not for the faint of heart fans because as I mentioned above, it is graphic, and people with a weak stomach should refrain from seeing this film.
