Aaron's Spoiler-Free Review of "Green Room"

What are the three key ingredients for a good thriller? Some might say good writing, suspense, and a strong cast.

Others might say direction, gripping story and nuance.

Some could even argue that you need atmosphere, a good man in the director’s chair, and ambiguity in the plot.

There might even be those who want a mixture of the lot!

These are all perfectly good answers. This stuff is subjective, after all.

I however, say Nazis, Punk Bands, and Patrick Stewart!

Green Room is the rollercoaster bad-boy about a punk band on a low-budget tour who suddenly get offered a last-minute gig at a white supremacist bar out in the sticks. They agree to play, due to a good pay promise, and head on down!

However, when they enter the green room (roll credits!), they stumble upon something which they weren’t meant to see, which leads to very deadly consequences.

As a musician who’s played the rough pub circuit, this film really touched my heart, and it's executed beautifully, which I’m sure any struggling, live-playing musician can agree with! Many props for that!

For the casual movie-lovers out there, this is a gritty thriller/horror with very visceral overtones of suspense throughout, which can really get under the skin!

Can Patrick Stewart do an American accent? Not particularly, no, but when he plays a bad guy, he plays it well!

Aaron's Spoiler-Free Rating: Extremely life-like gore, very three-dimensional characters and a story that encourages you to pick yourself back up after every punch and gets you ready for the next one! – 8/10

Aaron James Waters is a best-selling Pulp Fiction writer who has written more books than he's actually read.

He's also the rotten apple of the group who thinks this whole Star Wars thing needs to hurry up and die already.

You can find Aaron's debut novel on Amazon!
