Here’s the debut trailer for the Nicolas Lopez directed horror film Aftershock, which stars and was co-written by Eli Roth. The film centers on an earthquake that takes place in Chile and the chaos that ensues afterwards. While the earthquake appears to be the catalyst, it seems that these survivors have more to deal with than crumbled buildings and falling debris.
This played the festival circuit this year and was met with lackluster reviews, but for some reason I’m a big supporter of Eli Roth so I’ll be checking this out when it hits theaters sometime in 2013.

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.
