May 10, 2013
"Aftershock" is ultimately predictable in its litany of who lives and who dies, and doesn't try to be too ironic or self-reflexive about it.

On the seismic scale of entertainment, "Aftershock" registers a 1.5.

May 10, 2013
A weird mash-up of disaster, horror and dystopia genre pictures, "Aftershock" fails to make the Earth move.

May 9, 2013
The violence is quick and occasionally inventive, with little of the attenuated nastiness that characterizes so many genre pictures, and the photography ranges from brightly sun-kissed to down-and-dirty.

There's so little context to the litany of ugliness - some played for laughs, some meant to shock - that it's hard to discern where the entertainment value lies in any of this.

It's hard to imagine just who would want to sit through this movie, given the sadistic mayhem the audience is subjected to.

Aftershock is incompetently made and morally muddled, but since talent, morality, and Mr. Roth have never been on speaking terms, we're not exactly surprised.

Cross "The Hangover" with the Apocalypse and that'll give you some idea of the level of debauched mayhem that makes "Aftershock" such a shameless and titillating exercise in horror.

Roth and his pals are so dedicated to dread (and debauchery) that the potential thrills get lost.

The ending is sick enough to make it almost worth the wait. Key word: almost.

There is a great final shot ... and the Roth character does find a place with real heat. Otherwise, there's nothing groundbreaking here.

Aftershock becomes perversely predictable after a while. Just imagine what a conventional disaster movie would do, and wait for the opposite to happen.

It's not my kind of horror flick anyway, but even for fans of gross-out gore-a-paloozas and campy humor this is a swing and a miss.

It's boring, overly gory and ridiculously executed.

...if you think you are going to be witnessing something in the vein of your typical death and destruction flick like THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW or 2012, you will probably be horrified by the depravity on display.

The elements all seem to be there but they're not compiled in a way that creates atmosphere or dread as much as they do confusion and laughter.

Utterly generic, but worth seeing just to experience Eli Roth -- movie star.

Merely lurid slice-and-dice junk put through a Cuisinart.

Nicolás López's slick shocker turns into an unholy amalgam of disaster film and slasher flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 7, 2013
There's plenty of gore, but none of it is particularly inventive, nor does it engender any visceral or emotional reactions beyond jaded disgust.
