'Aftershock' trailer with Eli Roth
Ah, Chile — land of unspoiled natural beauty, perfect weather, and gorgeous locals wearing little but bathing suits. Nothing could ever go wrong here… right?
Well, unless you’re horror virtuoso Eli Roth, and you’re co-writing and starring in a new thriller set within its borders. In that case, Chile isn’t just the “indie station of Latin America,” whatever that means — it’s a place where a devastating earthquake is just a preamble to the violence committed by the quake’s victims. Call it a disaster movie meets Lord of the Flies, encapsulated by this line from the film’s new teaser: “The only thing more terrifying than mother nature is… human nature.”
Watch a lovely, sun-soaked vacation devolve into a horrific, fire-filled, ax-wielding nightmare in the clip below. Shades of Hostel, anyone?
