Did You Know?


Most of viewers feel the answer to Pat's desert island band is evident in the cut to a Creedence Clearwater Revival track at the very end, but that's apparently not the case. Saulnier's being coy about it, but he says there are two correct answers. "One that makes perfect sense given the context of the movie and how everything plays out, and there's another that is something I whispered to Anton Yelchin on set that only him and I know." Saulnier's own is Black Sabbath. See more »


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: You can't keep us here, you gotta let us go.
Gabe: We're not keeping you here, you're just staying.

Enjoyable Thriller
15 July 2016 | by blueclementinexSee all my reviews

So, i finally got the time to watch the movies so far in 2016. I read an article that said this movie is one of the best movie so far this year, and i agree.

'Green Room' is about a struggling punk band that got into a wrong place at wrong time when one of them, Pat, witness a murder after the show they got into at secluded part of the Pacific Northwest. They, then play a mouse-and-cat game with group of maniacal skinheads.

The story might move slowly, but it's still well developed. What really stands out to me is the cinematography and the score. the dark cinematography actually helps the audience to feel the dark and tense tone of the movie. and the score complete some moments at the movie.

Newcomer director Jeremy Saulnier did a pretty good job, and i actually looking forward to see his next works. The performances of the movie is also great, Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots did a wonderful job, and so is the rest, except Patrick Stewart. His performance here is really weak and actually defeated by the plot. The character might written to be the silent yet deadly villain, but he just do the silent part and leave the deadly, leaving his character, as i said before, really weak.

the ending is simple, and actually predictable, but left me satisfied.

I really recommend the movie, if you're looking for an enjoyable thriller. but, if you're looking for a horror, i actually don't recommend you since this movie is actually far from what horror is.
