TNTM Movie Review: Green Room

TNTM Green Room

Jack and Troy from ZiaComics.com watched Green Room at Alamo Drafthouse and give their review.

Green Room is a 2015 American horror-thriller film written and directed by Jeremy Saulnier. Jeremy Saulnier has slyly defined a unique cinematic aesthetic that complements his idiosyncratic narrative premises. His sophomore feature, Blue Ruin (2013) a quirky, crime drama set in a pretty, but grimier part of suburban America was a festival darling and supplanted his name within the independent movie scene. His upcoming project Green Room looks like more of the same strangely engaging stuff from the incredibly promising writer/director.

The film stars Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, and Patrick Stewart. The plot follows a punk band who find themselves at the mercy of a group of neo-Nazi skinheads after witnessing a murder at a remote club in the Pacific Northwest. Filming began in October 2014 in Portland, Oregon. It was screened in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. The film was released in a limited release on April 15, 2016 by A24 Films.
