Editorial Reviews

Chile has it all: gorgeous landscapes, smokin' hot babes, cool dudes and the wildest parties. For an American tourist, nicknamed Gringo (Eli Roth) by his two Chilean pals Ariel (Ariel Levy) and Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), the trip has been heaven on earth--except that he just can't hook up with the ladies. Gringo's luck seems to change when the group meets a trio of babes: Russian model Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), non-stop party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her serious sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt). A night at the hottest local dance club turns into a night of terror and panic when a violent earthquake brings down paradise. Our unlucky heroes must run for their lives from looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.

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.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
The latest Eli Roth vanity project which proudly proclaims above the film’s title that “Eli Roth Presents” is Aftershock, a tedious, low-budget horror/disaster film that was produced, written, and stars Roth. In other words, he owns this film for better or worse…mostly worse. Roth plays an unnamed American who is referred to only as “Gringo” by his friends. He is on vacation in Chile to visit his two friends Ariel, and Pollo who is the stereotypical rich boy.

The three friends are concerned with little else other than meeting women at local clubs and soon connect with Russian model Irina, party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her stern sister Monica. Roth and director Nicolás López essentially waste the first 30 minutes of the film following this uninteresting cast of characters travelling from club to club, drinking, dancing, and playing childish pranks on each other. The film tries your patience so much that you begin to hope the impending earthquake just ends things quickly.

Once the earthquake hits, killing many in the club, the six friends flee but find themselves trapped within the city. As if the earthquake was not bad enough, sirens warn of an incoming tsunami and the walls of a local prison have been destroyed, spilling its dangerous convicts onto the streets where they rob, rape, or murder anyone who crosses their path. The group’s only hope is to make their way through a cemetery and to a local church which is rumored to have tunnels that can lead them to safety.

Aftershock was originally slapped with an NC-17 rating and had to be re-edited to get an R rating. Look, Roth loves this crap.
