Audience Reviews for Aftermath

A companion piece to Genesis, Nacho Cerdà manages to fill an entire half hour with an abundance of gore and an absence of sophistication and good taste. The purpose being: 'Let's see how many disgusting and perverted acts we can squeeze into a 30 minute film'.

Interesting piece of visual art (if that's the right word?), but lacking of any real story. Fans of gore will appreciate the ghastly realness of the film, though the whole thing comes across a bit self-indulgent. I guess you can't really call it "torture porn" if the victims are already dead...but you get the idea.

I had no idea what this was about when I started watching it on Netflix Streaming, and I'm glad since I was caught utterly off guard. I'm not going to argue that this had any social or artistic value whatsoever, but I kept watching simply because I knew I had a good story to tell the coworkers the next day. Not for people who can't handle gore or taboo topics.

Directed by Nacho Cerdà and Starring Xevi Collellmir. Okay...Most likely in my life time I would never watch a short or a film like this. Short films like Flesh to Flower about a Samurai that mutilates a girl would put me off that stupid shit forever. But alternately Aftermath wasn't the case because my favorite film critic Tadao Sato gave Aftermath 4/5 on his scale saying. "Aftermath is a disturbing short picture with plenty of gore but somehow redeems it self from start to finish unlike most pictures of its type." Many critics across the world have indeed wrote the same thing and gave it high praise. Although I would never watch it again but I must say I would never say I regretted seeing it. Story: None? Many would widely ask the question of "What happens in a morgue after dark?". Characters: Well None (Sort of)? Our nameless lead is a morgue worker but in all truth despite his dark secret for having sex with dead girls he really fits the profile of your everyday guy. He would never seem like the one for it. 95% for special effects: I nearly thought they were real until they stared to look somewhat rubber like near the end, but overall they look good. 100% for everything else: I think its empowering themes of mostly Necrophilia ruins it but somewhat not really the case, the major flaw is the films lack of narrative and no dialogue at all in the film. But it's the camera angles and music that somehow leads to this rating of a 100%. Look I don't regret seeing it but the films lack of a story or narrative lead to my 50% and nothing more. Keiko's score 58-100. BBFC Rating-18 Eirin Rating-R-18
