Probably the best horror movie in decades
24 October 2016 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

When it comes to horror movies I see either 2 modes - overdone Jump-scares to the extent that they aren't even startling anymore or torture porn. Green Room is something of a completely different entity. This has to be one of the most intense experiences I ever had and it would have gotten a 10 out of 10 if it wasn't for some problems.

The plot is that a rock band is on the road and after doing an interview the guy that conducted it invites them to a hang-out place of his cousin to play their music and they agree because they're short on cash. It so happens to be a gathering place for Neo-Nazi's in the middle of nowhere and they play an anti-Nazi song which goes over slightly better than expected (in the sense they can leave with no injuries aside from one attempted glassing). However things take a turn for the absolute worst when they witness a stabbing and attempts to call the police. From there they're locked inside the Green Room and has people all over the outside wanting to get in and kill them by any means necessary while the band and one other person who happens to be in the way who's NOT a neo-Nazi tries to get out.

Pretty much the beginning and end of the movie are... Well the beginning really didn't make me think highly of what was to come. Pretty much from the point the band realizes where they are is where things get interesting but the true point wherein the movie gets good is them being trapped. It's tense, it's claustrophobic. I seriously had no reaction to a jump-scare - I was that on edge while watching it and it is very unpredictable. Wen it comes to the ending I will say from the point where they get out it loses it's edge but I guess that was only natural considering over half the movie is spent in a tight room and when they get out it's a wide-open forest.

On other levels aside from the tension is really good too. The acting for one thing is completely top notch, the cinematography is excellent and the same can be said for even sound design. It really is a case of if only what happened in the beginning and ending were slightly better because this seriously would be an absolute horror classic. If you're tired of modern horror tropes like I am then I will seriously recommend watching it.
