Aftershock - Trailer
Director Nicolas LopezGenre(s) Alternative
When a bunch of tourists including American guy Gringo hit a party town in Chile, they anticipate a night of fun and frolics and Gringo just wants to meet a girl. However, what happens instead is a catastrophic earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale collapses the roof of a packed underground nightclub killing many of the late night revellers. When Gringo and his friends manage to stagger out of the ruins, they learn that the disaster has caused a high security prison to collapse, releasing a hoard of dangerous criminals on to the street where they revel in the destruction and use it as an excuse to exact even more chaos including brutal murders and makeshift bombings. The madness unfortunately doesn't end there as the regular civil members of society find themselves transforming out of fear and panic into the monsters they are trying to escape in a deadly struggle for survival.
Appropriately named, 'Aftershock' is loosely based on the real life events following a devastating earthquake in Chile in 2010 which caused society to briefly break down. It has been co-written, produced and is starring Eli Roth ('Cabin Fever', 'Hostel') with direction and co-writing credits from Nicolas Lopez ('Promedio rojo', 'Santos') and screenwriter Guillermo Amoedo ('Retorno'). It is a horrifying, blood infused thriller due to hit the US later this year.
