In the middle of a night of wild partying, a hapless American tourist (Hostel director Eli Roth) and his friends are suddenly plunged into a living hell when a powerful earthquake rips through the coastal town of Valparaíso, Chile.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
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.Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 05.09.2013
It's hard to imagine just who would want to sit through this movie, given the sadistic mayhem the audience is subjected to.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 05.09.2013
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.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 05.09.2013
Aftershock's best attribute is the disregard it shows for the safety of its central "heroes" who perish in brutal and generally unexpected ways.Ethan Alter, Hollywood Reporter, 05.10.2013
