Customer Reviews

The film Aftershock is pretty much Hostel with Eli Roth as the lead character instead of director.
NoDoubt84
You know what, if you just want to see the earthquake, it doesn't happen until 34 minutes into the movie.
James McDonald
You know a movie is going to be bad if the trailer is so bad that you can't even finish watching it.

Aftershock is a horror movie with a unique and interesting plot: A disaster set within a disaster movie. Imagine a Hollywood disaster movie, with a smaller budget, mixed with the horror we've come to expect from Eli Roth (albeit toned down), and you've got Aftershock. However, the movie doesn't live up to that crazy premise.

The plot: Three friends (one of which is portrayed by Eli Roth) party in Chile. We spend the first half of the film meeting these guys, and learning about each of them. They meet a trio of women, and party with them throughout Chile too, both sightseeing and club hopping. While in an underground dance club in the city, an earthquake hits. Following that initial earthquake, we follow the survivors as they face many obstacles, including aftershocks from the initial blast, missing limbs, looters in the streets, loud storm sirens signalling an incoming tsunami, and freed prisoners who escaped when the initial earthquake opened up the prison. It sounds more complicated than it is, and the movie is pretty straight forward. The build-up to the disaster takes forever though, and we spend half of the film meeting the characters before the earthquake, when 20 minutes would have done the trick.

There isn't much to note in terms of acting, as no one stands out, but no one is annoying enough to warrant loads of complaints. Usually with a film like this, actors find themselves in the difficult position of not being able to act and reading a really terrible script. Not the case here, as it is just what it is. The tone and acting can be strange at times given the dire circumstances the characters find themselves in, but I did not find it to be enough to take me out of the film.

Eli Roth is the main reason I was drawn to this movie:he has become a reliable horror film director/producer. Regular set up; friends are on vacation and looking for fun. An earthquake hits and leaves a trail of dead bodies and sets loose the convicts in the prison. The only complaint I have about this movie is the "rape scene". The director is adamant that there is not a "frame of rape" in the movie, but I really don't see how it can be viewed any other way. I found it disappointing simply because Eli Roth's name was also attached to the film; his films have always been free of this kind of violence. Anyway, it's a fun disaster movie with an especially awesome ending.

What ever happened to watching a movie to get some type of fun or enjoyment out of it? Eli Roth happened. The film Aftershock is pretty much Hostel with Eli Roth as the lead character instead of director. You will leave this movie with a feeling of despair, and hopelessness. If you are looking to feel this way save your money and watch the daily news.
With a slow start that leads into something that might be a thrilling disaster film turns into a sick tale of rape, brutality, a random Selena Gomez for 1 minute, and baby corpses. The special fx are comparable to a cheesy sci-fi flick you would find in the low budget section of Walmart's 5.00 DVD bin.
The only plus this feature had for it was attractive women, and a fun soundtrack. Other then that Aftershock was a pile of pure rubbish.

An Eli Roth-penned disaster flick set in the midst of a late night at the club in urban Chile. Close your eyes and try to envision a film based on that description alone and chances are good you'll nail it in one shot. This is thoroughly flippant, sloppy, random and depraved, not even remotely unlike Roth's preceding flicks Hostel and Cabin Fever, so if that's your thing get after it. Personally, I appreciated some of the more creative kills - the last half-hour basically trots them out one after another - and the liberal bloodletting amongst the primary cast members, but it has little else to offer beyond crimson-drenched scenery and some weak SFX shots. Minor points for jerking the wheel a'la Dusk Till Dawn with the mid-sentence earthquake, though.

If you liked the preview to the movie, that was the movie. It is a total waste of time to watch anymore.

Simply horrendous. If i could give it zero stars on here, I would. Just plain dreadful, boring, and incomprehensible the whole way through.

First of all, this is an Eli Roth film. If you don't know who he is, he's the man responsible for Cabin Fever and the line of Hostel films, all of which are grim, violent movies. (Leader of the "Splat Pack," some journalists have dubbed him.) CABIN FEVER I actually enjoyed, but only because it had a sense of humor about what it was doing, and you get the impression from some of Roth's other work (specifically some of his cameo appearances as well as his work with Tarantino) that he doesn't take himself too seriously. That's to his credit, because when your movie is an onslaught of relentless doom, gloom, and death, it helps to toss in a joke or two to help soften the blow or else you end up narrowing your audience down to masochists, suicidal goths, and aging serial killers who miss the good old days.

This movie is about a random group of people in Chile who experience a massive earthquake and then must deal with the horrific aftermath, including aftershocks, looting, crumbling buildings, and general anarchy. The movie is notable for refusing completely to follow any kind of traditional story conventions. I can't decide if they were trying to be avant-garde or if they thought it would lend the story (as much as there is any kind of story) more impact, but a lot of choices left me scratching my head. For instance:

-- Nothing happens for thirty minutes. We meet three guys -- Gringo is white and Ariel and Pollo are Spanish/Latin American -- who are partying hard down in South America. They party and talk about/hit on girls and dance for about thirty minutes.
