Hard to think of too much to write...on the plus side, it features a load of gratuitous ass shots and some heartbreakingly beautiful women. Plus I got 2 high fives for calling the delightfully downbeat ending correctly and we laughed heartily at it.
On the negative side? Well...it's a load of shit isn't it!? Eli Roth can't act and apparently he is a jew, though he doesn't mention it much. Well, he does mention it but only constantly. The action is too zoomed in and the FX are terrible, like 'rubber hand in Kingpin' awful.
People do stuff for no apparent reason, a tonne of concrete on top of you doesn't hurt til "El Flabbo" sits on it and some of the treatment of the women characters is too mean spirited, even for me.
Aftercock, more like.
Nicolás López’s Aftershock attempts to blend the thrills of a disaster movie with the terror of a horror. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really work. This is familiar territory for co-writer and star, Eli Roth, as a bunch of obnoxious tourists fall foul of the locals as a group of holidaymakers, partying in Chile, battle for their lives following a violent earthquake. However, the natural disaster is the least of their problems when the town becomes a lawless haven for escaped convicts intent on murdering and raping anything with a pulse.
Split into three clear acts - tedious partying and character development, the earthquake and murderous aftermath - it is only in the final hour where it becomes remotely interesting. Quite why…
This must be the most boring introduction to a disaster movie ever. 35 minutes of uninteresting characters partying.
Even worse is that, after this, the biggest disaster is yet to occur. Earthquake = "Let's shake with the camera".
Almost as striking as the events on the bridge of the Enterprise.
Further on, so cliched, so stereotypical, I couldn't wait for it to end. And what an ending.
The icing on a cake baked with rotten eggs.
A disaster of a disaster movie.
“I feel like every girl I meet I have to download some new app. Whatever happened to meeting a girl in a park and say hey, how about a cup of coffee?”
missed Eli Roth and for whatever reason thought Aftershock had to do with zombies, so i put it on. i was VERY wrong 😂 fictional account of the 8.8 earthquake in chile and follows a group of partygoers (three guys and three girls). oh it’s horror alright and Eli Roth’s signature is all over it, but i feel like this heavy topic wasn’t handled with a lot of care.
while i see what Lopez and him tried to convey with the utter anarchy after such a catastrophe, it’s just…
It's not too surprising that many are hating this, and I can't totally defend the movie myself as it looks incredibly cheap and doesn't quite balance the tonal shifts right. But I also don't think it falls that far outside Eli Roth's other work.
I know a lot of people don't like Roth's films, but I think it's because he has a very specific sense of humor that people don't get or, possibly, don't like. Possibly. If you can't get on board with the humor of an animatronic deer being chucked through a windshield then I guess his movies just aren't for you. Personally, I can dig it. Something happens to one of the characters right after the earthquake hits…
Fuck this movie.
If it was just another lame disaster movie, I would be able to deal with it. I've watched my share of those on lazy Sunday afternoons where SyFy is having a marathon. But this film is just insulting. It's aggressively nihilistic, but not even in a meaningful way, with every ugly moment simply built on shock value. There's a rape scene in this film that is so uneasy the filmmakers are either stupid, irresponsible, evil, or all of the above.
Don't even bother.
i don't mind that this is just an excuse to watch horrible shit happen to assholes, but i absolutely can't forgive taking nearly half your runtime to "set up the characters" before the earthquake happens. how about showing me how awful your characters are while all the bad stuff happens? you know, like a movie? generic horror movie misanthropy is one thing. this is just boring.
Day 10 Let's get dirty....watch an Eli Roth or Rob Zombie horror film.
Eli creates some annoying characters doesn't he?...like the kind you want to see get hit with something they can't buy their way out of. Get it right up ya.
A little long to get to it but boy, what a pay off. My hand, my hand.
Aftershock is an execrable film that bills itself as an action/horror but provides neither, unless you consider the act of watching it a kind of horror, but even then it's still at a 50%. It's about a group of friends vacationing in Santiago, Chile when a massive earthquake hits, and their struggle to survive the aftermath. And when I say "aftermath" I am referring to a group of escaped convicts from a collapsed prison who have not a single interest during an epic natural disaster than carrying on like gangsters, while looting and raping their way through the town. Look, I'm aware Chile is struggling with a 65% recidivism rate, but the idea that escaped prisoners would return to business…
So this is a film of 2 halfs. The first is very 1st half Hostel, which isn't surprising since one the stars (Eli Roth) co-wrote this. We follow three 30-something guys as they holiday and party in Chile. Roth plays the only 'gringo' amongst them. The other 2 guys are Chilean, one of whom played by the other writer (and director of the film) Nicolás López. There is lots of leering at younger and more attractive girls and mild scenes of drunken debauchery. So in their attempts at getting laid, they do at least befriend some girls. This all goes on maybe slightly too long, but it is setting up the characters for what happens later.
I'm not going to…
Combining disaster movie thrills and horror movie shocks, "Aftershock" tries hard to two mix genres into one, cohesive film. Following a band of survivors searching for safety after an earthquake hits Chile, the film subjects those survivors to all manner of mayhem. Surviving the quake was not enough. Now, the group has to deal with everyone else, and everyone else may have nasty intentions of their own.
The film takes its time to establish its menagerie of characters before the quake hits. This is refreshing, but, unfortunately, the characters are buffoonish tourists who offer little with which to empathize. The audience eventually may care whether they live or die, but it takes some time. The quake and its after effects…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
So Eli Roth is talking to his Chilean friend, filmmaker Nicolás López, and the subject of the devastating 2010 earthquake comes up. They decide to make a movie about the aftermath of the earthquake, during which society seemed to collapse.
But because they are heavily drunk/on drugs (I'm assuming) they decide that Roth himself should play one of the main characters. And that out of respect for the victims of the original tragedy, there should be loads of random splatter and gore for its own sake.
Then in the end the whole thing should become a slasher film, with a 'final girl' and everything (because Eli and Nicolás are SO high right now). And then they'll kill the final girl with a tsunami (because Eli and Nicolás are SO high right now - but at least they're back on topic).
The rare disaster movie that is better before the disaster happens.
Entertaining found footage film about an earthquake starring Eli Roth.
Aftershock (2014 Chile, thriller, catástrofes, terror)
Un joven apodado Gringo (Roth) está pasando unas vacaciones de lujo en Chile, pese a que no ha conseguido ligar con ninguna chica. Cuando él y sus amigos logren al fin que unas mozas los acompañen en el viaje, un terremoto convertirá las idílicas vacaciones en una auténtica pesadilla.
Vale que no es buena, vale que tiene tufillo a telefilm, pero no se por que, está película me gusta, jajajaja. Me parece bastante entretenida, quizá tenga que ver que la primera vez que la vi, sin saber nada de ella, cuando empieza la acción me pareció la hostia, y repito, se que no es buena, pero me gusta. Lo de la cárcel me parece la hostia y el final me parece apoteósico jajajajajaj. Repito por enésima vez, no es buena, pero para mí es un 6!!!

I dont remember much about this movie but when I was little I heard my mum watching it in the living room and I just remember those screams.
Easy to tell Eli Roth wrote it.
i expected a fun disaster flick but all i got was annoying characters & a disgusting sexual assault scene.
Predictable yet ballsy
por momentos parecía la versión scary movie de sí misma
Cheap acting. Takes a long time to start up but once it starts it's an interesting watch. Didn't expect some of these deaths.
'AFTERSHOCK'. Me interesé por ella, al ver que Eli Roth producía, guionizaba y actuaba. Error. Mal. Estomagante.
