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.


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

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!

I have to say that Dead Space Aftermath was a big disappointment after watching Dead Space Downfall and playing the Dead Space video game. The first time I watched a piece of this movie was on YouTube, and at first I thought I had accidentally clicked on a video for the Dead Space 2 game walkthrough instead of the actual Dead Space Aftermath movie because of the way the animation had been done. Of course, after I bought the movie I found out otherwise. At first, the animation looks like something out of a kids movie or video game; then all of the sudden it goes to a much better looking animation like the Dead Space Downfall movie as each of the survivors recalls their nightmarish encounters to the interrogators, which makes no sense to me. That was incredibly stupid for anyone to do, and it makes the movie very disordered and hard to follow. The looks and animation also change slightly with each survivors story, making the characters appear different, which was also a stupid thing to do. They should have picked one thing and stuck with it like they did in the first movie. I felt like I was watching something that multiple people with multiple ideas and animation designs had just slapped together and put their ideas and pieces of the story where ever they could find a place, and I was suppose to try and make sense of all this. I did understand the movie enough to know what was going on, but even then I was still unimpressed. Half the movie seems to concentrate on unimportant matters, such as the doc's affair with the woman he works with and his wife's suspicions about it. That was a stupid part to put in the movie considering what the movie is suppose to be about, aliens and the marker shard.Read more ›

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.

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
