There are a few plot holes and weak motivations exhibited by various characters but the sheer energy on display makes it easy enough to suspend disbelief.
| Original Score: 3/5
Certain to generate a slew of lesser imitators, Aftershock manages to shake free from expectations of banality, creating an extremely effective, unsettling experience.
| Original Score: B-
Struggles to strike a tone between intense and comically cruel as it picks off its cast.
Aftershock is a brutally brilliant, blood-soaked horror destined to become a genre cult classic.
| Original Score: 4/5
A schizophrenic but effective little combo of Hostel and Irwin Allen.
...it's ultimately impossible to shake the feeling that a major opportunity has been squandered here.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Aftershock gets a little Sunshine-like ridiculous in its final act and becomes a bit too routine, but for a good hour this is a genuinely successful disaster flick with real terror, gory surprises and all the nasty fun a horror fan craves.
| Original Score: 3/4
The first two-thirds are terrific, but it's marred by a gruesome finale.
| Original Score: 6/10
by coloring within the lines it is an effective midnight movie
| Original Score: 7/10
