TV-Warnung mit FSK 18 Dieser Erdbeben-Horrorfilm ist – trotz Lob von Quentin Tarantino – tatsächlich eine totale Katastrophe!

Universum Film GmbH

Nicolás López must be an extremely cool guy! He was expelled from school as a teenager for writing a column for the major Chilean daily newspaper El Mercurio, criticizing the country’s education system. But instead of letting the setback get him down, he founded his own film production company while still a teenager — and finally made his directorial debut at just 21 years old , which was immediately voted the funniest film of 2004 by none other than Quentin Tarantino himself. .

A few years later, López also strove for attention beyond his own national borders — and received double support from » Hostel » torturer Eli for his horror production » Aftershock — Die Hölle nach dem Beben «, which is very loosely based on real events Roth, who served as co-producer and co-star on the Splatter project. Unfortunately that didn’t help. What a catastrophe the terror shocker «Aftershock» really is, you can get an idea of ​​it in the night from today, April 21 to tomorrow, April 22, 2022 from 00.15 a.m. on Tele 5.

That’s what «Aftershock» is about: three hipster machos (including Eli Roth ) tour together through the hottest clubs in Chile. The next day, a particularly popular club in Valparaiso is on the agenda. But the wild night of partying in an underground disco ends in disaster when an earthquake with a devastating magnitude of 8.8 on the Richter scale shakes the coastal region.

Those who don’t get crushed directly by falling debris quickly realize that the real horror awaits them on the surface. Because with the mobile phone network, the rules of the game of a modern civilization have also said goodbye: bloody chaos reigns in the streets…

That’s why «Aftershock» is unfortunately not much good: when Eli Roth mercilessly rebuffs as a gringo in a disco acquaintance played by Selena Gomez , it’s the only time that Nicolás López ironically criticizes the intolerable macho attitude of his protagonists. Otherwise, «women’s asses are checked out» like there’s no tomorrow — and the audience should keep their fingers crossed for the hipster idiots at least at some point.

But apart from that, the central idea of ​​the film, that civilization itself is collapsing with the houses and the infrastructure, hardly comes to fruition: With the exception of a single mother who shoots down every stranger out of fear for her children, they are not the “ordinary citizens” but only the inmates who escaped from a collapsed prison and who use the chaos to satisfy their baser urges. The recently released “ The Sadness ” went much further.

And so, at the end of the day, the bottom line of our 1.5-star review is: «Aftershock» is technically competently implemented, but the content is questionable, soulless and tension-free low-budget horror.
