Though director Eli Roth hasn’t directed a movie in quite some time (I have literally been in the middle of a marriage, gotten divorced, gotten remarried and had two kids since his last movie), he has stayed busy acting in films like Tarantino’s INGLORIOUS BASTEREDS and also starring in/producing the upcoming Nicolás López disaster film AFTERSHOCK. Word around the campfire is that AFTERSHOCK is a film to be reckoned with, and luckily for us Roth fans, the trailer for the film has now had it’s debut online today via IGN. I don’t know about you fright fans, but Im stoked as hell for it. Looks very promising.
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.
AFTERSHOCK currently doesn’t have a set release date but Dimension films is expected to release it sometime in 2013.
