Trivia

It was a particularly cold day when it came time to film the carnival scene and was physically exhausting for the actors. Even though it was filmed in the south near Birmingham, Alabama, it was freezing. It was shot through the night into the next morning. Temperature was 32 degrees with 10 mph wind gusts. See more »

Goofs

When the car pulls up to the smoky wall and Freddy and Ana are looking up at it, you can see the reflection of sky on the windshield, not the smoky wall. See more »

Quotes

[It's only afternoon, but the Wall of Apparent Stone and Black Fog is approaching]
Freddy: It's already getting dark.
Ana: It's blocking the sun.

A Familiar Template Executed Well
25 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched the movie After on Netflix. I don't recall having heard anything about it previously, no reviews or anything of the sort. I was pleased with what I saw.

It's difficult to discuss the movie without giving anything away and there are other movies with similar premises, but this one was well-executed.

Two strangers from the same town meet one another on a bus, with a bit of abbreviated and failed flirtation, shortly before there is a severe accident. The next thing we know they are the only two people apparently alive and active in their town. There are no corpses and no signs of life beyond the two of them. Surrounding the town is a wall of black, swirling mist with lightning and thunder active within it...and the wall is closing in.

It doesn't take altogether too long before the two protagonists discuss the possibility that they might both be dead, so they aren't as stupid as the characters in a lot of movies along these lines. We get to know them both pretty well along the way, through surprisingly natural conversation and glimpses into the past, without a lot of unnecessary exposition.

I won't go into any further details, you'll need to watch it yourself if you want those, but the acting is good and the production quality is high enough that it doesn't feel like a low budget movie at all. It's always kind of nice to go into watching a movie without any idea what to expect and to be pleasantly surprised.
