Aftershock is a grab bag of horror elements with few redeeming qualities, takes too long to get going while still failing to build characters, and ends on a note that confirms you've just wasted an hour and a half of your time.
I'm usually too creeped out by evil kid horror to watch movies like this, but I gave it a shot and was very pleasantly surprised! Little Evil expertly wove together elements of horror, comedy, and drama with a heart-warming message. The horror aspect is not meaningless jump scares, but the looming dread a stepfather feels toward the prospect of being rejected by his stepchild, only to realize the child just needed a hero in his life to lift him out of the hell created by his biological father. Not many horror or comedy movies today have much of a moral, but Little Evil's was overwhelming: how important it is for good men to be the fathers their kids need.
