Aftershock Red Band Trailer. Nicolás López‘s Aftershock (2012) red band movie trailer stars Eli Roth, Andrea Osvárt, Ariel Levy, Lorenza Izzo, and Natasha Yarovenko. Aftershock‘s plot synopsis: “After an earthquake erupts in Chile, tourist discover that a neighboring prison in the area collapsed in the event, and all surviving criminals managed to break free. Soon they learn that the most terrifying thing, more threatening that Mother Nature, is what she created.”
The horror movie seems to have too much cheese, think The Evil Dead 2 or the second and third act of From Dusk Till Dawn, for its own good.
On the film:
The film, while fictional, was based on true events from the 2010 8.8 earthquake in Chile. The film was shot in Chile, in many of the same locations where the destruction took place. The idea came from a conversation with Roth and Lopez, where Lopez described the horrors of not just the earthquake, but the complete chaos and temporary collapse of society in the ensuing hours.
On the real earthquake the film is based on:
The 2010 Chile earthquake occurred off the coast of central Chile on Saturday, 27 February 2010, at 03:34 local time (06:34 UTC), having a magnitude of 8.8 on the moment magnitude scale, with intense shaking lasting for about three minutes. It ranks as the sixth largest earthquake ever to be recorded by a seismograph. It was felt strongly in six Chilean regions (from Valparaíso in the north to Araucanía in the south), that together make up about 80 percent of the country’s population.
The earthquake triggered a tsunami which devastated several coastal towns in south-central Chile and damaged the port at Talcahuano. Tsunami warnings were issued in 53 countries, and the wave caused minor damage in the San Diego area of California and in the T?hoku region of Japan, where damage to the fisheries business was estimated at ¥6.26 billion (USD$66.7 million). The earthquake also generated a blackout that affected 93 percent of the country’s population and which went on for several days in some locations. President Michelle Bachelet declared a “state of catastrophe” and sent military troops to take control of the most affected areas. According to official sources, 525 people lost their lives, 25 people went missing and about 9% of the population in the affected regions lost their homes.
On 10 March, Swiss Reinsurance Co. estimated that the Chilean quake would cost the insurance industry between 4 and 7 billion dollars. The rival German-based Munich Re AG made the same estimate. Earthquake’s losses to economy of Chile are estimated at US$15–30 billion.
Aftershock also stars Selena Gomez and Matías López.
