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

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!

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 ›

If you want to see the sequel to Dead Space Downfall, then get this (or rent from local movie place). Otherwise don't waste your money For me, did not like the animation, cheaply done, their budget was either very small or something. Would gave it a one star, but wanted to see the sequel, to see what happen with the story, and still wasn't what I thought. Unfortunately, there seem to be a gap between Dead Space Downfall and Dead Space Aftermath. Did not play the game so don't know if the game was the missing storyline. Graphic was horrible, you keep feeling the movie wasn't done, rushed job or something, or thinking the animation, CG, will get better halfway into the movie. What you see at the beginning, is what you will see at the end credits. If you can rent it for $0.99 from some local movie/book store, sure, but you still feel something was missing and unfinished. It felt more you where watching it in Alpha stage of the development, not even Beta stage. Storyline was ok. Really did not like the animation, was awful.

I liked the first Dead Space movie so I thought I would get this one.

I do not like the animation in this movie. Calling it a different "style" is being generous, it is just bad, almost like it is unfinished.

The plot wasn't as well done either. I wound up turning it off about half way through.

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.
