See that pic above? Well, I dare you to tell the ginger on the left he has no soul [Editor’s note: Feeling testy, Nick?]. Oh? You’re all silent now? Good. Because these bad boys have serious anger issues and the scariest is actually the one in the middle. That bald head, those glasses, that beard, wait a minute, it’s Walt White!
The first time I saw the Green Band trailer for Green Room I wondered whether Sir Patrick Stewart could pull off a homicidal neo-Nazi intent on killing some band members who witness a murder and yup, he can. Heisenberg, get in your meth lab you ain’t got nothing on this sociopath. The story doesn’t pull on the brain strings too much: Group of hard rock kids accidentally see something they really shouldn’t have at a neo-Nazi club and well, become fair game to said denizens. The movie premiered at Fantastic Fest in the US and the comments after were of a movie that offers “unforgiving slices of breakneck cinema”, and that it “delivers maximum shock and awe”. SOLD!
Don’t believe the hype? Then have a watch of this new NSFW red band trailer then, you ginger bast*rd!
Oh mama. Last time I saw a neon tube used in any defensive way was in The Raid: Redemption and let’s just say that a bit of the glass got stuck in someone’s throat. Green Room looks brutal, but not like Saw or Texas Chainsaw Massacre and that’s a good thing in my book! Sadly it’s been reported that the movie doesn’t revolve around our shiny-headed Stewart but around the younger, soon to be in need of medical help, band members made up of Anton Yelchin (Star Trek), Imogen Poots (Need for Speed) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development). Still, it’s directed by Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin) who many are saying is one of the most gifted young directors hitting Hollywood right now. Expect to squirm when it hits US theaters on 15 April.
