TIFF 2015: Green Room (Preceded by The Chickening)

This was the first of two films I saw Saturday, with as much of the Blue Jays/Yankees double header squeezed in before, in between and after (on my phone, and at the pub across the road from the Bloor Hot Docs theatre where both my Saturday films were screened). It was a long day!

Green Room was itself part of a double feature from the Midnight Madness track of the festival. The opener was The Chickening, a weird, kind of funny, sort of animated parody of The Shining. It's hard to explain beyond that.

Green Room is a fairly gory film about a nice enough punk rock bank that is desperate for a gig, and winds up playing at a gathering of white power skinhead types. The band sees something they shouldn't, and things go downhill from there. Interesting premise for a film, and not badly executed, but not one of the best films of the week so far.
