Co-written, produced and starring Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever), Aftershock is an unsparing horror of epic proportions that takes the disaster movie genre to a terrifying new level. Relentlessly gruesome and intensely unsettling, this is a dark and thrilling journey that you will never forget.

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Aug. 2013
Format: DVD
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.

A thrilling mix of disaster movie with tones of gory Hitchcock thrills. Fans of both genres (disaster and thriller movies) will like this movie and the build up to the thrilling scenes is so well done, the characters are all well written and are given good screen time and worthy scenes of drama so when the death scenes do arrive they are horrific and very powerful.

Although the first twenty minutes seemed slow and I thought I would just stop watching ,and I'm glad I did. Thoroughly enjoyed it the tension and frightening scenes kept me on the edge of my seat ! don't understand why so many ratings were so low. I loved it!!

absolute pants,bottom of my list alongside blair witch project and cloverfield.not worth the time, so dont waste it.this film could have had so much potential,however it appears that the cast and crew got bored part way through filming,and just rushed the rest of the film to get it finished.

By Albatross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 11 Sept. 2013

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.

I love gory and scary movies and am always looking for new films to shock me. Overall I really enjoyed it. There were some 'oh my god' moments when gross this happens.. Which is always good. perfectly watchable.. I have recommended it to friends since.

This is an excellent disaster movie with a mix of everything from comedy, human drama and action. There's a lot of character development at the start and you do wonder at what point something happens, but once the 'action' starts it doesn't stop until the end and I was left well satisfied. One of the better films I've seen on Prime. Highly recommended.

Don't be fooled by the cover - this isn't a horror film about zombies or the afterlife or anything interesting like that. It's a terrible, terrible film, combining 35mins where absolutely nothing of interest/consequence/validity happens (other than, you know, 'oh look, everyone is getting to know everyone' stuff which is ultimately pointless), with what can only be described as unintelligent, voyeuristic, nasty, misogynistic and gratutious drivel. I rarely rate films because I either don't really care if they're awful, or am delighted they're brilliant so tweet about it. But this is truly hideous garbage: a film that glorifies and objectifies women for nothing other than male sexual gratification to start with, then on numerous occasions exploits their vulnerability for sexual violence that has no purpose other than to shock and (one assumes) entertain. If you enjoy this kind of drivel then I pity you. It's grotesque and repulsive. If you want proper, intelligent gore horror then go watch the Saw films; if you want a decent disaster movie, watch Deep Impact; if you want porn, you know where to get it. I'm repulsed by this garbage, and it really takes a lot for me to say that. As human beings, we should be far more intelligent than this nonsense.
