Aftershock was NOT directed by Eli Roth. That’s the first step in the wrong direction. It was directed by Nicolás López and Eli Roth co-wrote it, produced it and starred in it. It’s not truly an Eli Roth picture as a director. Now that we have that out of the way, do you think we can stop comparing Aftershock to and discussing Eli Roth’s short list of directorial efforts? Not a chance in Chile. This isn’t a movie that stopped the presses and caused a huge underground stir that had it voted into more theaters. Is it entertaining? Should you see it if it’s even still playing your neck of the woods? That’s what the Dead Air crew is here for. While the world waits with baited breath and enlivened gonads for Eli Roth’s return to the director’s chair with Green Inferno this may be the fix you need to tide you over.
Join Jeff Konopka, Shawn Savage and Jimmy Terror as they figure out if this is an Eli Roth picture, a Nicolás López picture or something completely new. All three of us had something nice to say about it so that’s encouraging and votes well for you to hit the Buy button on your VOD machine (internet, cable or other). Some of us enjoyed it more than others. You can expect some dark comedy. Some gore. Some disaster and even a little bosom buddies (without the make-up or women’s clothing). It’s okay to laugh even when things are absolutely deranged. You can’t help what you find funny.
We’ve saved the spoilers for the end and marked the transition from non-spoiler to spoiler very well so you don’t have to worry about us shooting your load for you.
