GREEN ROOM Blu-ray Review and Giveaway
Green Room has a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes for a reason. It is one of the best films I have seen this year. It is a shame I did not have the opportunity to see it in theaters, but the Blu-ray was a great substitute. It is no surprise that Green Room is amazing as it is. The film is directed by Jeremy Saulnier, who directed the critically acclaimed Blue Ruin.
What makes Green Room work is the stellar cast and the dark and dreary location of the great Northwest. Patrick Stewart gives the darkest performance of his career as the club owner that is willing to do anything to cover up a crime in this thriller. The film follows a punk rock band (Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, and Callum Turner) that is at a turning point in their career. If they do not get some money from another gig, then they will have to call it quits. They are given the chance at a show that will give them a decent payday to keep touring.
They arrive at the venue and find out they are playing for a group of white supremacists. After their performance they return to the green room and stumble upon a crime scene. A girl at the show had been murdered. The band barricades themselves in the green room and refuses to come out. This sets off a chain of events that will change their lives forever.
Green Room is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that has enough blood and gore to satiate any horror fans blood lust. Yelchin passed away way too soon, but this film lives on as a testament to the his acting range. Keep reading for more details about the Blu-ray and for your chance to win a copy.

Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the award-winning film stars Golden Globe® nominee Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past) in a role ”that’s as cool as it is evil” (Bloody Disgusting) and will haunt audiences well past the closing credits.
