'Green Room' Official Red Band Trailer Is Chillingly Brilliant, Ruthless Cinema

By Matt O'Bryant

A24 is having one helluva a week! First they released that mesmerizing peek-a-boo trailer yesterday for their highly acclaimed horror thriller The Witch. Now today they have released the red band trailer for their highly acclaimed thriller Green Room starring Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin. If you haven't heard about this film, well prepare to get excited for what's sure to be a front runner for one of the year's top films. The film actually premiered last year at all the major film festivals and has been praised overwhelmingly by critics and audiences alike. Right now the film sits at an insanely high 92% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you haven't seen director Jeremy Saulnier's other master piece Blue Ruin, you should check it out. That film is currently on Netflix and it can serve as a good appetizer until we get to feast on the Green Room in April. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the Green Room red band trailer.

Check out the red band trailer below:

GREEN ROOM is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band. Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown. Intense, emotional, and ingeniously twisted, Green Room is genre filmmaking at its best and most original. Saulnier continues to build his reputation as one of the most exciting and distinctive directors working today, with a movie that’s completely different from his previous, highly acclaimed Blue Ruin, but which is just as risk-taking and even more full of twists. The entire cast deliver first-rate performances, but Patrick Stewart gives a transformative and brilliantly devious turn as Darcy-elegant yet lethal, droll yet terrifying, Stewart makes the film simply unforgettable.
