  • Aftershock (2012)

    Aftershock follows the story of a group of travelers in Chile, who are in an underground nightclub when a massive earthquake hits the city. They quickly learn that reaching the surface is just the beginning of their nightmare.

    "Starring" Eli Roth, Aftershock was a crowd favorite at the Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness. It merges three genres...thriller, horror and some comedic moments as well. Maybe I will it give a go on Blu-ray.

      Likewise.


      Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
      I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

        I like the tagline for the film.

            I started to watch this and got distracted about 30 mins into it, so I stated it over again.

            I kept thinking 'maybe it will get better once shit actually starts to go down'... thus I was disappointed.

            [SPOILER]Did there really need to be a blatant theme of that chicks regret of abortion. It was said in passing, if they were going to continue to use it as a theme they should have gone into some more detail.
            [/SPOILER]

            What could have been a cool idea was spoiled by some poor acting (come on Eli ) and a terrible script.

              This does sound interesting, but I can just see it being one of those really annoying slow-burn films where nothing happens for ages and your stuck with obnoxious characters like in Hostel.

              I actually quite like the idea of mixing fun comedy with hard-hitting and disturbing horror. It sounds different. I might get it when I see it in the 3 bin at Asda.

                  Eli Roth presents a movie starring Eli Roth. Lots of quality people involved here.

                    I like most of Eli's output, but Aftermath is something I would never recommend.

                      I really enjoyed this flick. Sure it has flaws, but I was hooked during most of it.

                      It would definitely suck to be in this kind of situation. This is why I hardly ever travel!

                        The acting and everything about this was horrible. Sorry TDE.

                          I enjoyed it too. The gore was real looking, the story was a good one, the acting was by far better then say the evil dead, and the twist was decent. I've seen far worse that has gotten a helluva lot more of praise. I will get the blu when it comes out for sure.

                            I plan on picking it up as well.

                            Not sure if this was mentioned on here yet, but the lovely Selena Gomez has a fun cameo. She puts Eli Roth in his place.

                              Just caught this on demand the other nite. Had heard alot of negative things about it, and the usual Eli Roth-hatred, but I really wanted to like it. I thought it was a great concept but horribly executed. The storyline went nowhere and there was no really caring about any of the characters. Highly disappointed.
