    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.

    Right up until the quake, Aftershock is a bland, sub-"Hangover" comedy about guys on the make in South America. Then finally, blessedly, the ground swallows up these shallow idiots.

    Though offering some chilling twists on the usual conventions, employing wit and restraint where otherwise the filmmakers might have relied on the contents of an abattoir, 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.

    Aftershock then becomes a catalog of most every unpleasant way of dying you can imagine.

    A movie that tends to stick to formula, offering up minimal scares amid scattered moments of gross-out bliss.

    Aftershock has no earth-shattering revelations to make its mayhem stand out in the wreckage.

    At first, it’s all fun and games whenever somebody gets hurt, but that’s not enough in and of itself to sustain the movie’s tension. We’re left waiting for characters to die off without much of a vested interest in anyone’s survival.

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

    People become mere punch lines: fleshy avatars for the gory grist.

    Aftershock is the worst movie 2013, and I don't think that any movie could get worst than this movie, this movie should be frightening! ButAftershock is the worst movie 2013, and I don't think that any movie could get worst than this movie, this movie should be frightening! But no, it has 40 MINUTES build up, and then some rape, survival horror and disturbing/vulgar elements that are surprisingly stupid and boring, poor intense, story and acting. Can this movie get worse than this?! Full Review »
