Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Dimension pickup is a hectic, sometimes hilarious guilty pleasure that should delight genre geeks."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Aftershock's best attribute is the disregard it shows for the safety of its central "heroes" who perish in brutal and generally unexpected ways."
‑ Ethan Alter, Hollywood Reporter
"With a nihilistic ending tacked on because hopelessness is seemingly cool, cheap special effects, clunky dialogue, a bizarre ten-second cameo from Selena Gomez, and some genuinely mediocre filmmaking, Aftershock is too amateurish to be truly awful."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"Very, very ordinary."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"The cosmopolitan cast never develops much chemistry, and the script settles into a predictable pattern of gory mayhem."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"Was Aftershock just an elaborate ruse by writer-producer-star Eli Roth to justify an extended vacation to Chile?"
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
""Aftershock" is ultimately predictable in its litany of who lives and who dies, and doesn't try to be too ironic or self-reflexive about it."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"It's just one gigantic waste of time."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It gleefully chops its cast down in increasingly alarming and brutal ways."
‑ Ken McIntyre, Total Film
"You just might find yourself rooting for the earthquake to win out in the end."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Is no continent safe from the blood-drenched paws of filmmaker Eli Roth?"
‑ Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
"On the seismic scale of entertainment, "Aftershock" registers a 1.5."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"a fumbled and misguided mess that not even the infamous Harvey Weinstein could snake-oil pitch."
‑ Robert Kojder, What Culture
"It feels like overeager tourists playing make believe on the old Earthquake attraction at Universal Studios. The parts that work better are intentionally played for laughs."
‑ Eric Melin, Kansas City Star
"Ultimately, Aftershock ends up having the nihilistic outlook of Funny Games with the charming international optimism of Hostel."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
