During a 2015 Q&A at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX; Jeremy Saulnier confirmed that while his last two films had colors in the titles- Blue Ruin (2013) and Green Room (2016), he wasn't really working with color as a theme. Rather, Saulnier joked, Green Room was part of his "inept protagonist trilogy" wherein the protagonists are in over their heads and trying to survive using skills they don't really have. This theme is present in both Blue Ruin and Murder Party (2007). See more »

Intense, frightening, and cathartic. Green Room has it all.
A punk band that needs cash and then arriving at the wrong-place at the wrong-time.
It is the most frightening, action-packed thriller that I have seen this year so far. Out of all of the films I had the opportunity to watch at Sundance, this one stuck with me the most. When you watch this film you are trapped with no escape for you or the characters. And I say "when" because you really need to watch this movie.
The Sundance Programmer that introduced Director Jeremy Saulnier, told us that the movie was, "PUNK AS S**T!!" We all laughed because we didn't really know what he meant; and then the film started. IF you don't already know what a green room is, it's a place in a theater back-stage where the performers can relax and have their own safe-space. Green Room takes the place of safety, and rips it apart during the 94 minutes of pure terrifying ecstasy. It will take you to the edge of your seat and then throw you to the other side of the room.
The director has an incredible talent of telling the story as it unfolds. Trust me when I say this: You've never seen anything like Green Room before.
