A schizophrenic but effective little combo of Hostel and Irwin Allen.

It gleefully chops its cast down in increasingly alarming and brutal ways.

This Dimension pickup is a hectic, sometimes hilarious guilty pleasure that should delight genre geeks.

Is no continent safe from the blood-drenched paws of filmmaker Eli Roth?

If 'The Impossible' was a disaster film for the arthouse, 'Aftershock' is strictly grindhouse. It delivers the nasty goods.

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.

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.

...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.

Whether Nicolás López was actually trying to be funny with Aftershock I'll never know, because I ended up laughing more than I intended, but hell - intensity and pace gleefully carry the film two-thirds of the way.

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.

Certain to generate a slew of lesser imitators, Aftershock manages to shake free from expectations of banality, creating an extremely effective, unsettling experience.

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.

The first two-thirds are terrific, but it's marred by a gruesome finale.

With a nihilistic ending tacked on because hopelessness is seemingly cool, cheap special effects, clunky dialogue, a bizarre ten-second cameo from Selena Gomez, and some genuinely mediocre filmmaking, Aftershock is too amateurish to be truly awful.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
