A good movie if you are looking for a bad movie
17 May 2013 | by Onion-EaterSee all my reviews

There is obviously a joke to be made about fecal matter and the title of this picture (which has probably happened a million times) but after watching Aftershock...a total disaster "of a" movie, I don't feel like "piling" on. Which might sound mean but I surprisingly did find this movie entertaining in delightful ways I hadn't expected despite how negative this review might come across.

Where to start?

My god is Aftershock a terrible/good movie. I wanted to like this movie so bad but I must have burst out laughing a dozen times at parts of the movie that weren't clearly meant to be laughed at. If it was, Eli and company are actually geniuses.

The enjoyment was mostly due to the fact that they had zero dollars for CGI and decided to use CGI for virtually everything. Some major events you couldn't even tell what was going on cause the CGI was so poorly done to the point of being unrecognizable. Not so much the blood and guts kind of way (which was lacking) but important stuff, like major events that come out looking like something you'd see on SyFy.

But even better (if you are looking for this sort of thing) the combined horrible writing/acting on display, actually kept my interest from start to finish, in a so bad it's good kinda way. With a busy schedule and a short attention span, I have a hard time sitting down for a movie in one viewing but no lie (maybe I was in a really good mood at the time) I watched Aftershock the entire way through on the first try, with only a slight ache in my belly from laughing so hard.

For those interested in what Aftershock was shot with (a C-300) and more importantly what the final outcome looked like, I'm pleased to say the outside daytime shots looked great and the low-light shots were more than passable. Ignoring the fact that there is a lens being used that is probably more expensive than the camera it is attached to, this should inspire a lot of future filmmakers to go out there and make their own movies without the constraint of needing expensive cameras looming over them.

PROS -One or two good twists relating to how one might act during a crisis -Killer untouched locations straight from the actual quake -Shot on a camera cheaper than most cars but doesn't look like it -Eli Roth's over acting is fun to laugh at.

CONS -Virtually no gore in a movie promising gore! A rubber appendage from the dollar store bouncing around the screen for 5 minutes does not a Fulci film it make.

FINAL SCORE I was all set to give it 1/10 for being a technically well shot movie but still horrible, then a 2/10 for making me laugh when I wasn't expecting to but as the final scene approached, I told myself, if the film makers went in the direction where I hoped they were going to go, I'd bump it up another point. And boy did they ever go there. Good job people.

3/10 stars
