Trivia

The name of the town in which Ana and Freddy grew up is Pearl. Wild-cultured pearls are best known from being discovered in oysters and other mollusks, but the allegorical use here is that it is a precious center of a town that is apparently going to be destroyed by the Black Fog (which has, of course, another meaning, not to be spoiled here). Just as a pearl is surrounded by the mollusk that produced it, and just as the mollusk is surrounded by the sea, the town of Pearl is surrounded by what appears, at first, to be a home-like quality, which is soon surrounded by a greater darkness.

Goofs

When the car pulls up to the smoky wall and Freddy and Ana are looking up at it, you can see the reflection of sky on the windshield, not the smoky wall. See more »

Quotes

[It's only afternoon, but the Wall of Apparent Stone and Black Fog is approaching]
Freddy: It's already getting dark.
Ana: It's blocking the sun.

A refreshing look at the thriller genre
20 September 2012 | by brandonchesbroSee all my reviews

When seeing the trailer for After for the first time, I was a bit skeptical. But the story peaked my interest. What I walked out of was a refreshing take on the genre of the thriller. I can't go into a "scary"movie anymore without watching either someone demon possessed (not really my thing) or girls and guys getting ripped to shreds by some mutant human. Sure, I love my Shining and even a little Evil Dead, but too much realistic gore just takes me out of the story. So, it was awesome to see a well acted, great looking film that had all the suspense I needed without the explicit gore. Lead Steven Strait did a wonderful job as our hero, while Karolina Wydra was captivating and easy to root for. What I loved most about this story was the idea of these moments that connect us that we may not even be aware of. How many people do you pass on the street that you may have played with as a kid, lived next door to, or more? Check out After. It offers plenty of thrills for the thrill seekers and yet also gives us a heart-warming story we unfortunately don't get to see in the Hollywood thriller anymore.
