Fantastic Fest review: GREEN ROOM

Director Jeremy Saulnier made a lot of genre fans giddy with excitement, when in 2007 he unleashed one of the most lovable horror comedies around: MURDER PARTY. It seemed like the impressive debut would immediately lead to other projects, but we didn’t get a sophomore film from Saulnier until 2014’s BLUE RUIN. Where as MURDER […]

Review: BLUE RUIN

Jeremy Saulnier’s 2007 film MURDER PARTY kind of came out of nowhere, quickly becoming a cult hit among horror fans, and hitting its pitch black comedy mark so very well.
