Goofs

The wounds on Pat's arms were so deep that he would have bled out before the end of the film. While the duct tape used could has closed minor lacerations, the wounds shown were so deep that they would struck bone thus cutting arteries and veins. See more »

Reece: So, in a tournament, I snap his arms or he taps out and we all go get burgers.

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.
