While most horror movies draw you in with their unexpected frights that send you three feet in the air, Green Room knocks you right over the head with its breakneck intensity. With a premise as wild as its nonstop rollercoaster of fear, you will be firmly clutching a pillow for protection.

When a punk band comprised of Pat (Anton Yelchin), Sam (Alia Shawkat), Reece (Joe Cole), and Tiger (Callum Turner) plays a neo-Nazi skinhead bar deep in the backwoods of Oregon and witnesses a murder, they become the subjects of terror. Soon, the band must evade death by the club’s ruthless owner (Patrick Stewart).

With a great cast, a proven director in the genre of thrillers, and an interesting yet crazy plot, Green Room promises to keep you tense on the edge of your seat–exactly where you want to be for a good horror flick. But, you know, the band should have included “not being murdered” on their green room rider.
