A pretentious noise band on a makeshift tour play gig in a remote compound populated by white supremacists and stumble upon a murder scene. Writer-director Jeremy Saulnier's follow up to Blue Ruin takes the formula of the horror film and applies it to a stranger in a strange land style thriller making for a kind of "Night Of The Living Skinheads". I very much enjoyed his debut and this similarly offbeat offering shares its theme of violence - even perpetrated by the"just" - as an ugly, grotesque, even seedy thing rather than something to be glorified. The result is not for the fainthearted and some of the scenes are guaranteed to make you wince, but it's a suitably tense and edgy affair as this assortment of everyman would-be misfits find themselves fighting for their lives when …

"Things have gone south, no doubt.
But you know if you don't hand over that gun, it won't end well."
The advantage of watching a movie without any knowledge or awareness of what it's about initially, is that sometimes you can be pleasantly surprised. And that's what "Green Room" did. It surprised me. Either way, I thought it was already interesting because it was about the members of an obscure punk band called "The Ain't Rights". They travel across the U.S in a shabby looking Minivan, going from gig to gig. It's not exactly the comfortable life as that of a successful, richly paid rock-band. On the contrary.

I have to hand it to director Jeremy Saulnier, this is a man who has turned violence into a kind of art form. I had high hopes after Blue Ruin and Green Room (not part of a color trilogy or anything) is a fantastic follow-up. Both films are kind of bleak and definitely violent, but instead of using a sledgehammer to get his point across, it's more like a scalpel - and it cuts deep.
Green Room follows a punk band a bit down on their luck (and funds) who take a gig in a shady joint in the Pacific Northwest that happens to house some white power people. Hey, at least they get paid - but just when they're about to leave, they stumble upon a horrific crime and suddenly find themselves held until the leader arrives to sort things out.
The band members are played by Anton Yelchin (in one …
