“Aftershock” (2012) Movie Review

aftershock

Directed by Nicolás López

Written by Guillermo Amoedo & Nicolás López

Starring: Eli Roth, Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez

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

You lost me at underground nightclub, guys. This film is a colossal waste of time, so I won’t punish you by rambling on and wasting more of your day. Aftershock suffers from so many things, but the protagonists, a bunch of uber rich kids partying with Dad’s money, these characters suck on every level. The film does nothing to endear them to the viewer, they’re two-dimensional to the core. The natural disaster setting bored me to death and I started questioning my choice to watch it. I’m still not sure why I did. Oh, yeah. I watched this initially because Amazon is charging to stream it, while Netflix does not. Great rational is it not?

I can’t waste any more of your time in good consciousness; just do yourself a favor and skip this one. Free on Netflix isn’t always a good thing.

    Oh boy. I almost watched this recently on Netflix but I always end up watching Dark Shadows or The Twilight Zone, instead. I didn’t know Roth was the lead, either. Um, I’ll stick to other better free flicks in my queue. Thanks for the head’s up!

  2. Love to get your thoughts on The Broken. I thought it was a decent horror/thriller…no walking dead/American horror story of course but decent.
