Marina Antunes [Celluloid 05.01.13] horror



Talk about a vacation gone wrong. In Nicolas Lopez's Aftershock, the vacationers not only have to deal with the aftermath of an earthquake and what mother nature shells out but also what human nature delivers when faced with a catastrophe and from the looks of things, we're ugly, selfish beings.

This isn't The Impossible but rather a horror filled take on what happens to a group of friends, including Eli Roth as "Gringo," when they find themselves in Chile in the aftermath of an earthquake. Safe to say this will be a vacation they won't forget; if they manage to live through it.


Roth isn't exactly a master thespian and from the look of some of these kills, it looks like solid B-movie type material. Certainly looks like it could be kind of fun.

Aftershock opens in limited release and VOD on May 10.

I'm tired of the idea that folks are just waiting for the TVs to stop working to go apeshit. I'd love to see a PA film about folks pulling together. I really can't think of one. Maybe 'Ever Since the World Ended' but there was still a lot of inter personal strife with a thin veneer of left coast 'civility'.
Does anyone have any other PA films that don't focus on our collective dark side?

Maybe the Quiet Earth? (movie) I seem to recall it was relatively bloodless

I would classify this more as a horror film, so the mayhem makes sense. Also, the film is apparently based on real events and Roth claims a lot of what you see happened to his buddies. Crazy.

In The Day After the survivors of the apocalypse try and pull together. One of the best ones PA flicks out there.
