The Green room is one of those movies that is brutal, thrilling and takes you by surprise on how much you are captivated to see it through. The movie displays some fine acting and the whole cinematography comes out freaky and gruesome. The movie is amazing and although I am not a fan of movie which such gruesome acts, I found myself being a fan of this one.
The movie is directed and written by Jeremy Saulnier. I do not know much about his movie portfolio, but this was a nice addition.
The movie is about a punk/rock band who while going on tour find themselves attacked by neo-Nazi skinheads because they made some bad choices on where to perform.

The movie plot starts with an introduction to the band, which are Pat (the late Anton Yelchin), Sam (Alia Shawkat), Reece (Joe Cole) and Tiger (Callum Turner). The band is named the Ain't Rights.
We see their struggle living in their supposedly tour bus and trying to make it through each day stealing fuel from other cars and doing gigs where they are paid just change.

A friend tells them about a gig at a neo-Nazi skinhead bar in the woods outside Portland which promised good money of $350. They take the offer and after their performance which was a hit performance, they get paid. While the rest of the band packs up to leave Pat goes to retrieve Sam's phone where she left it charging and sees the body of a girl named Emily lying on the floor. She had been stabbed to death in the head by a neo-Nazi.
Pat runs and calls the police, but the men at the bar hold him down, collect his phone and then pushes the whole band to a room, called the green room. There the band's phones were taken and the band held captive with a huge neo-Nazi standing guard.
Now the police did show up and the neo-Nazi made up a story to get rid of them, now they have another problem, the band. They decided they have to kill them, along with a friend of Emily named Amber who was also locked in the green room with the band.
They called their leader and formed a plan to kill the band, but things did not go easy when the band overpowered their guard and hold him hostage.

The movie did well enough to find it self on the list of many critics as one of the best films of 2016.
It also under performed at the box office, which would have been a drag for the producers, but I hope the accolades made up for it. Here is a movie you should get to see.
