Movie Info

The devastating horror of a nuclear apocalypse is now reality and nine desperate strangers find themselves clinging to life in a farmhouse cellar, while radioactive fallout descends on the darkened world above. These would-be survivors face the nightmare of dwindling supplies, poisonous air and the greatest threat of all - the hordes of zombie-like refugees who want in. With each dying day, their choice becomes clearer - stay and let the makeshift shelter become their tomb or face the unknown terrors of the world outside. Starring Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo and C.J. Thomason, AFTERMATH takes a hard look at how far humans will go to survive. And it isn't pretty. (C) Image

Critic Reviews for Aftermath

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

The shocks, and the repressed wickedness, as in all well-done horror films, build slowly, then reach a crescendo that is hard to bear and harder to shake off.

Top Critic

An often tedious but clammily atmospheric end-of-the-world thriller set in the wake of a nuclear holocaust.

This is the story, understand, of a group of people taking shelter in a basement following a nuclear holocaust. It's pretty clear right from the start that all or most of them will die. Good times.

There's very little that actually thrills in this well-constructed, if underwhelming film that works best as a how-to vid for nuclear war-minded DIYers.

Top Critic

Essentially, we're watching dead people refuse to lie down, yet the acting isn't terrible, and Scott Winig's photography is satisfyingly bleak and grimy.

New York Times
Top Critic

Though they won't win any prizes for originality, writer Christian McDonald and director Peter Engert have fashioned a fairly involving, slow boil of a thriller that's as eerie as it is grim.

Audience Reviews for Aftermath

½

The premise may sounds somewhat interesting, but after the 20th minute of sitting in a basement, you'd start to wonder when things will move along. It doesn't get too thrilling until the end, and even then it's anticlimactic with it's downer ending. There's a lot of somber, but it doesn't take away from the amount of bore.
