"Aftershock."

More and more films premiere on Video on Demand -- if they don't simply bypass a theatrical release altogether. Because VOD reviews are often scarce and hard to find, Criticwire created VODetails, a recurring column to help you figure out whether a new VOD release is worth your hard-earned dollar. This time we're looking at "Aftershock," a horror film about an American tourist and his guides struggling to survive the aftermath of a huge earthquake -- not the popular post-game show of the WNBA franchise the Tulsa Shock.

Director: Nicholas Lopez

Cast: Eli Roth, Andrea Osvart, Ariel Levy

Criticwire Average: TKTKTKTKTKTK

Official Synopsis: "In the middle of a night of wild partying, a hapless American tourist ('Hostel' director Eli Roth) and his friends are suddenly plunged into a living hell when a powerful earthquake rips through the coastal town of Valparaíso, Chile."

Reviews:

Jason GorberTwitch:

"Well shot, with good ensemble acting and a well paced narrative."

Dennis HarveyVariety:

"Gleefully trashy."

Staci Layne WilsonInside Horror:

"It’s a lot better than I expected and I do recommend it to fans who’ve been thirsty for Roth’s brand of blood."

Jordan Hoffman, ScreenCrush:

"An effective midnight movie, working best when it is simply pushing the story forward, letting the nightmare of the situation stay front and center."

William Goss, Film.com:

"We’re left waiting for characters to die off without much of a vested interest in anyone’s survival."

"Aftershock" is now available on VOD.
