The title "Aftershock" alone will make you expect it is about an earthquake. However, for the first thirty minutes or so, you are only uselessly following a group of three friends and ladies they pick up as they go around scenic Valparaiso in Chile, you'd think you were in a wrong rom-com movie.
However, this earthquake does come when you least expect it. Then, the disaster movie goes into another radically different territory. It becomes a schlock-y horror film, where all the characters get killed off one by one in a way more grisly than the one before. This film does not shy away from blood or bad logic, folks!
With a story line like this, it really caters to a very limited audience - those who like to see the worst of human nature come out after a natural calamity. Fans of gore and sadism though may actually enjoy watching this awful film. I am giving it a star only for its final scene, which was well-shot, even though I totally saw it coming. 1/10.
