The first trailer has finally landed for director Nicolas Lopez’ new Earthquake based horror flick, Aftershock. The film has been written by Eli Roth, who also produces and stars in the film. The trailer is very cliche, and is full of what you would normally expect from a horror flick based around all sorts of bad stuff after an Earthquake, but I must say I was kind of hoping for a bit more from this.
Yes there appears to be plenty of gore, plenty of thrills, comedy and fine looking ladies, but there wasn’t much tension in this trailer and I came away from it feelnig a bit, well, meh. Check it out for yourselves below.
Aftershock is directed by Nicolas Lopez. Roth will be starring alongside singer Selena Gomez and Ariel Levy, Nicolas Martinez, Lorenza Izzo, Natasha Yarovenko, Andrea Osvart and Miguel Asensio will also feature in the film. Roth and director Lopez wrote the script together, with Lopez recounting some of his own experiences from a devastating Earthquake in Chile in 2010.
Chile has it all: gorgeous landscapes, smokin’- hot women, cool dudes, great wine, and the wildest parties. For a hapless American tourist, nicknamed Gringo (Eli Roth) by his two Chilean pals Ariel (Ariel Levy) and Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), the trip has been heaven on earth — except that he just can’t hook up with the ladies. Gringo’s luck seems to change when the group meets a trio of babes — Russian model Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), non-stop party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her serious sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt) — who agree to accompany them on a trip to the coastal town of Valparaíso. The new friends are having the best of times whooping it up in a dance club, until a violent earthquake brings the entire city down around them. With this one-time paradise now a landscape of death and destruction that’s seething with terror and panic, our unlucky heroes must run for their lives from looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.
