A Nightmare... For the Viewers, 4 May 2014
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In Santiago, the American Gringo (Eli Roth) is spending vacation with his Chilean friends Ariel (Ariel Levy) and the wealthy and influent Pollo (Nicolás Martínez). They meet the Russian tourists Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), the promiscuous Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her protective sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt) and Pollo invites them to go with his friends and him to Valparaiso. During the night, they go to a nightclub but an earthquake collapses the club and there is a warning of tsunami. The group tries to find a safe place in the middle of the chaos. Meanwhile a nearby prison also collapses and dangerous criminals escape. When they see the women on the streets, they hunt them down along the nightmarish night.

"Aftershock" is a lame American-Chilean horror movie with a terrible story that is a nightmare for the viewers and shallow characters. The first 30 and something minutes is a combination of tour in Chile with the development of dumb characters. After the earthquake, they do whatever possible to die with stupid and senseless attitudes. It is impressive to see how producers spend two million dollars in this trash. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
