After the first clip
, which just showcases what happens to a trendy Chilean nightclub and its inhabitants when The Big One strikes, the first official trailer for Aftershock has arrived.
Co-written by and starring Eli Roth
, the film which takes place in the wake of a deadly February 27th, 2010 Chilean earthquake, quickly turns into a bloody horror film in true Eli Roth fashion. Selena Gomez
makes a cameo in this direct-to-DVD level fare, which also stars Andrea Osvart, Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez, Lorenza Izzo
and Natasha Yarovenko
However, Nicolas Lopez
makes his American feature film debut with Aftershock that he co-wrote with Guillermo Amoedo
and is currently expected to arrive in US theaters in 2013.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the natural disaster horror thriller that our pal Brad at RopeOfSilicon
heavily criticized and called it ‘a travesty of a film’.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
