Two fun loving guys (Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez) and Gringo (Eli Roth) meet a hot Russian model and her two European friends while vacationing in Chile. Character is built for half the film, about 10 minutes too long. We get to know the characters fairly well in this time and they are all flawed. The earthquake hits and anarchy reigns supreme as criminals escape from a prison.

Outside of Nicolas Martinez as a Chilean Zach Galifianakis, I found the film boring, even with the young hot chicks. I didn't feel the horror or terror of what is more like a bad street snuff film.

Not recommended even as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, rape. Brief nudity-Male butt nudity, scrots, woman with pasties.

With poor films you can usually find some redeeming features, maybe the special effects, maybe some originality, or maybe you can watch for the unintentional hilarity. This film achieves nothing.
Oh how bad it is. The cover and tag lines would have you believe you are in for excitement, gore, suspense - all of which fail to materialise, along with decent acting, directing or script.
Don't even bother if this film is cheap, you will be sorely disappointed.

This so did not live up to its description. There is nothing epic about this beyond its predictable banality. After 25 minutes of the tourist trail I was beginning to wonder if I had accidentally clicked on an information film by the Chile Tourist Board. I get the point of introducing us to the victims but really the vinyard tour? I love the idea that you can identify an escaped prisoner by their tattoos but am now terrified to leave my house in London.

Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) really has gone downhill. There was a time when he was hailed as a something refreshingly new in the horror genre. However, if `Aftershock' is anything to go by, he really has lost his muse.

It's about a group of people, holidaying in Chile when an earthquake hits. The first problem is that all the characters are pretty unlikeable, spending their time trying to pull, moaning or taking drugs. This might not be too bad if the story quickly moves on to the action, but it takes the best part of the film for the earthquake to hit. By this time you really won't care much if any of them (besides Roth himself, who's `fish-out-of-waterness' is quite endearing) live or die.

Apparently in Chile, the general population consists of looters, rapists and murderers, for as soon as the earthquake hits, the country descends into anarchy. Then our - pretty horrid - heroes find themselves being pursued by people only slightly more unlikeable then themselves.

This film has no real redeeming features - a few moments of gore (which I didn't know whether were supposed to be humours or not) and that's about it. Granted there are worse movies, but there are a million better ones. If you do decide to watch it, you might as well start the film at about 45 minutes - at least you'll skip the bits that are even more tedious than the last 45 minutes.

Not really a horror film, more like a very gory horror film. There is not much storyline and many of the usual disaster film clichés are included. If you like blood and gore some of the deaths are quite gross. You could see the end coming a mile off but it still made laugh out loud. Glad I didn't bother to pay for a cinema ticket for this.

I'll start by warning non-fans of subtitles that there's a surprising amount in this film,so avoid if they frustrate you. Everyone else,just avoid. You read ELI ROTH on the cover an expect something great,don't be fooled,this is highly dispappointing.
The story is of a of a group of male friends who go out for a good night,picking up ladies,getting drunk etc...
The night ends suddenly when an earthquake cause chaos and destruction,later making it possible for some vile criminal to escape and roam the streets.
Sounds good huh? The problems are aplenty,the first being the men on a night out are slimes,the women they chat up are mostly slutty,the night is dull to watch and the action takes far too long to get going. So over half an hour into it,the earthquake happens and people get killed,trapped and injured. One of the main guys loses a hand and it looks comical,leaving the viewer wondering if it's meant to. The escaped convicts are repulsive and threaten to kill a guy till he gives away the girl's hiding place,she is captured and raped,which gets the point of the horror within the quake over,but it's too sickening to watch for as long as it goes on,as much of a point as it tried to make,it's just nasty to watch.
The bloody scenes are not as often as you'd expect but are okay,if a bit silly. Some of it is just too predictable and the whole thing is just a mess. There are worse movies out there,i've seen worse this year,but this is easily one of the most disappointing I've watched this year.
