Aftershock (2012) Synopsis:
A group of friends traveling within Chile finds their party night suddenly interrupted by a massive earthquake striking all city.
Aftershocks are a typical catastrophe movie, but one that can easily be put into the horror box because of the amount of gore and blood that it contains.
The first 30 minutes of the film are a little useless, to be honest, and felt like watching a bad remake of Project Xor another poor teen party film. Once the earthquake happens, however, the film takes a totally different turn to become your typical catastrophe film, only a very gruesome one! The bloody aspect of the film is really its best card. There is a lot of blood and a couple of great death scenes. The fact that the characters are a tourist in a foreign country (Chile) adds up to the feeling of chaos. This is further strengthened by the combination of English and a great lot of Spanish (subbed), a good trick to immerse the audience into the isolated situation of the characters.
Other than the gore aspect, the film is not really convincing. It is filled with clichés. The plot is inexistent and the few surprises that it brings do not make much sense anyway. The worst might be the few sentimental moments, which are really laughable. The comedy aspect, luckily, is a much better point of the film. I would even say that, as compared to most catastrophe films, the film is decent because it does not take itself too seriously and some of its most gruesome moments are hilarious.
In conclusion, nothing too memorable with that film, but a cheap easy entertainment for sure.
