"Awesome really is the best way to describe Saulnier's filmmaking style. Smart, assured, and clever. Saulnier is one of the most exciting genre directors around." - Twitch
"Saulnier’s ability to take a well trodden road and fill it with grisly surprises is quite something. Brave,… Savage.. Jaw dropping. This one is going to be a horror favourite for years to come." - The Guardian
"Littered with clever dialogue, a beautifully constructed narrative. This very much is a thinking person's thriller, one that treats its audience with respect while still managing to shock and surprise." - Indiewire
Down-on-their-luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights agree to a last-minute gig in a backwoods Oregon roadhouse. The gig soon takes a sinister turn as the band members stumble upon a grisly murder scene and find themselves targeted by a ruthless club owner and his associates, determined to eliminate all witnesses.
From the internationally acclaimed filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier (BLUE RUIN), GREEN ROOM is a nerve shredding thrill-ride with a thick vein of dark humour, featuring a gripping ensemble performance from Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Macon Blair and Callum Turner.
