First Clip From Eli Roth-Starring TIFF Earthquake Horror 'Aftershock'

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist September 11, 2012 at 11:10AM

Despite all the premieres of awards contenders, the Toronto International Film Festival, like many festivals these days, is very genre friendly, at least late at night -- “The Raid” premiered last year as part of the midnight screening series -- and one of the higher profile films is the Eli Roth-starring disaster film “Aftershock.” Co-written by Roth and helmer Nicolas Lopez, the film follows a group of attractive young people who “are having the best of times whooping it up in a dance club [in Chile], until a violent earthquake brings the entire city down around them.” The story is a straight-up natural disaster film, with the danger being “looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.” We’re not really sold on Roth as an actor, but as long as the film stays squarely in shlock territory it shouldn’t be a problem. Check out some images from the film below, as well as a short clip of some of the destruction “Aftershock” promises. [Collider]
