Did You Know?

Trivia

The conversation through the door between Pat and Darcy (Stewart) was shot with two cameras, one on either side, to fully capture both actors, but Saulnier knew he'd hardly be using any of footage of Stewart. He wanted character to trump Stewart's star power, but more than that he wanted the weight of the character to be seen and felt through the band members. See more »

Goofs

This Review is going to be Short and Sweet
1 October 2015 | by moviewizguySee all my reviews

Don't let ANYONE spoil you ANYTHING about the film.

Don't see the trailer when it comes out.

Avoid clips and any promo materials they may release in the future.

Go in knowing as little as possible.

Just know that watching Green Room is like getting a shot of adrenaline that doesn't let up until the very end.

It's fantastic, tense, and entertaining.

Take my word for it.

But also...

Don't get too caught up in the hype.

See the film when it comes out.

You'll be glad you did.

P.S. Jeremy Saulnier is definitely someone to look out for.
