Product Description

The year is 2509 and not only has Earth lost contact with the Ishimura and Isaac Clarke, but now also the USG O'Bannon, the first responder ship sent to rescue them. Four crew members of the O'Bannon have survived. But what happened to the rest of the crew? What were they doing? What secrets are they keeping? All to be revealed...in the Aftermath! Dead Space: Aftermath is a fast paced, horrifying thrill ride told through the perspective of the four survivors by several renowned international directors.

Amazon.com

Dead Space: Aftermath (2011) is an animated feature based on the Electronic Arts video game Dead Space. In 2509, the USG O'Bannon travels to the planet Aegis VII on a top-secret mission to find fragments of a mysterious alien structure. Only four crew members survive their trip to the volcanic surface, which looks suspiciously like the primal Earth in the "Rite of Spring" sequence in Fantasia. Scientist Nolan Stross, who seems to know the most about it, babbles that the artifact holds the key to the future of human evolution. It induces hallucinations in living humans and somehow turns cadavers into mutated zombies, as the surviving quartet reveal after being subjected to "enhanced interrogation techniques" (i.e. torture) by nasty government agents. Visually, the film seesaws between three-dimensional present actions and two-dimensional flashbacks. Neither style is used particularly skillfully, and the characters' appearances shift from scene to scene. Fans of Dead Space may enjoy the expanded vision of its world; viewers not familiar with the game will dismiss Aftermath as a mishmash of violent killings, gratuitous profanity, cheesy animation, and hokey dialogue. (Unrated; suitable for ages 17 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity, nudity, torture, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Customer Reviews

It really didn't stick with the plot of the game and I didn't like the "look" of the movie.
Jacqueline M. Raines
Dead Space: Aftermath is the second animated movie based on the Dead Space video game franchise, the first being Dead Space: Downfall [Blu-ray].
Alexander Lucard
The violence is intense and the story overall has a sense of tension, actually, the story itself is pretty good.
Joseph J. Slevin

Format: DVD
In the latest bit of synergistic marketing, "Dead Space: Aftermath" arrives on DVD shelves on the same day that the eagerly anticipated "Dead Space 2" arrives for gaming consoles. Sound familiar? It's the same strategy that brought the original "Dead Space" game forth in conjunction with its companion piece DVD "Dead Space: Downfall." Well, who's to look success in the face and not try to replicate it? I'm a bit torn in what to say about "Dead Space: Aftermath." A perfectly acceptable adventure, by all rights, if not particularly distinguished--this will obviously appeal (or not appeal) to different people for different reasons. If you are a "Dead Space" enthusiast, then--I might rank this production at four stars for a built-in audience. If, however, you're completely unconnected with the gaming experience--I'd probably put this at closer to two stars. I also think that if you were to watch this for free, you might think it a perfectly harmless entertainment--as a game extra, it might be awesome. However, when laying down your DVD dollar, your expectation might be higher.

Enough convoluted analysis, though. Here's the story. "Dead Space: Aftermath" tells the story of spaceship USG O'Bannon. O'Bannon responds to a secret and dangerous mission to attend to a planet in distress (if you've been to "Dead Space," you'll recognize the setting). The planet, however, is extremely volatile and soon the rescue party is fleeing--but not before uncovering a strange and hallucinatory rock. Back on O'Bannon, the rock starts affecting those on the ship. Before you can say "what the heck is going on," the crew is engaged in the ultimate battle for survival. Horrible creatures start to attack just as critical characters are sinking into dementia, it's not a pretty sight!

Format: DVD
I'm a huge fan of the Dead Space series. I own every bit of Dead Space related media released to date, including the games, comics, movies, and novel. This movie is Dead Space for people who hate everything that is Dead Space. Within the first five minutes of the movie, I was able to identify the true, horrible nature of the Necromorphs: they weren't the re-animated corpses-turned-alien-killing-machines of all established canon. No, the truth was much more sinister than that: In Aftermath, they were manifestations of the Evil Spirit of 1992, come from the grave to take its terrible animation back.

What Aftermath tries to pull off is a very Rashemon-inspired "same story from different perspectives" effect, by having four different survivors interrogated about the same series of events leading up to the present. Many movies have pulled this trick, but even the late TV show Mama's Family accomplished it better in a single campy 30-minute episode than this travesty of modern animation.

In Aftermath, the story is told through four separate flashback-style animation segments, each done by different animators. These segments are interconnected by a present-day story, which looks to be of lower quality than the cutting-room-floor discards of Final Fantasy 7 cutscenes. Even the computer scenes from Hackers are of better quality than this offal. The flashback sequences are... acceptable, and in some cases even rather decent. But none of it holds a candle to the previous movie, Downfall (and even that wasn't super-stellar, truth be told).

The story also makes no sense. The forced interrogations make no sense. The space physics make no sense. The airlock scene makes no sense. The entire final battle makes no sense. None of it makes any bloody sense.

4 survivors of the shard are being interrogated about what happened in the past. The movie is computer animated during the present "animations" and hand drawn to show the stories being played out.

This movie was awful, cruddy computer animation, characters completely changing in appearance from scene to scene so you can't tell who is who, overblown profanity and no point at all to the story are only minor setbacks to a movie with almost no redeeming qualities.

I wish at least the artwork had been halfway descent... but as it is, there isn't really an reason to watch or especially buy this film. Sadly the voice actors gave it their all... but there wasn't much for them to salvage here. I can't think of any reason to but this as it appears to be nothing more than a studio cash grab for people under the influence of the title.

I was thoroughly upset with how this movie came out, especially when compared to the first movie. Without giving away and plot points the movie seems to focus on character interaction more so then horror or action. I found my self constantly being distracted by items that seemed to change within the movie.

I found it very distracting that each survivor gets their own art style. I give the movie props for breaking out of the ordinary but it just goes to the extreme. The Ex marine's daughter was white in some scenes then in others she appears as African American. The same can be said with the female Doctor who appears to change race as well. Don't get me started at the Male Doctor's final appearance which was just outrageous. I appreciate the risk, but this should have been shelved.

The next point I have it the lack of horror/action. The games started out as being atmosphere heavy with a side of action. When the second one was created it seemed to be about 50/50. However you won't see any Necromorph action until about 45 minuets into the movie. This was way to much, as I had no feelings toward any of the main characters. Lived or died, I had no connection for them.

If you are not a Dead Space fan, I would give it 1/5. There is nothing for you to gain of this. If you are a dead Space fan I would still rate it a poor 2/5. The lack of action/caring characters and confusing character appearance changes can't hold your attention for the full length. I hoped there would be some Gem in this, but there isn't any. I understand that the creators have to follow the game's rules, but I read the two dead space books and found them way more entertaining then this film.

Dante's inferno product placement.
Yeah. I caught that too. Before they did a close up on the screen I thought it was God of War, but Dante's Inferno made more sense since the movie was also animated by Starz Media. Unfortunatly, they continue to mish-mash the different animations together making the characters unrecognizable.... Read More
