Green Room (18)

Crime, Horror, Thriller

After witnessing a murder, a punk rock band is forced into a vicious fight for survival against a group of maniacal skinheads.

The critical consensus

There is not a single wasted frame and, in all honesty, spending any more time in the green room than the film’s lean 95 minutes would be almost unbearable.

*****Kevin Wight, TVBomb, 03/05/2016

A riotous, rough-hewn and rousing punk reinvention of ’70s-style grindhouse exploitation-with-a-brain-cinema.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 18/04/2016

Horror fans will love the gore and pitch-black humour and Imogen Poots is noteworthy as the feisty Amber but I’m still more of a Blue Ruin fan.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 13/05/2016

This is a film that defines character through ruthless action, which enhances the experiential effect Saulnier is going for. This is straight-for-the-jugular filmmaking, not passive entertainment.

*****Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/05/2016

Patrick Stewart is impressive as a white supremacist in a genuinely shocking horror-thriller about a punk band’s battle with neo-Nazis.
