Review of Aftershock

Aftershock (2012)
1/10
As Trashy As Its Characters
24 June 2013
The title "Aftershock" alone will make you expect it is about an earthquake. However, for the first thirty minutes or so, you are only uselessly following a group of three friends and ladies they pick up as they go around Valparaiso, you'd think you were in the wrong movie.

However, this earthquake does come when you least expect it. Then, the disaster movie goes into another radically different territory. It becomes a horror film where all the characters get killed off one by one in a way more grisly than the one before. This film does not shy away from blood or bad logic, folks!

With a story line like this, it really caters to a very limited audience - those who like to see the worst of human nature come out after a natural calamity. Fans of gore and sadism though may actually enjoy watching this awful film. I am giving it a star only for its final scene, which was well-shot, even though I totally saw it coming.
