The first trailer for the disaster thriller Aftershock, co-written by and starring Eli Roth, has been released online. The film takes place in the wake of a deadly earthquake, but as this trailer shows, it quickly turns into a bloody horror film in true Eli Roth fashion. It looks like a mix between Final Destination and Hostel, and I’m not sure if there’s simply one deranged killer on the loose or many, but the pic does indeed look to be quite gory.

Premiering at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was the natural disaster thriller, Aftershock. Co-written by star Eli Roth and director Nicolas Lopez, Aftershock centers on a group of young partygoers in Chile who find themselves surrounded by death and destruction when a violent earthquake brings the town down around them. You can watch some footage here. Also, Dimension just picked up the rights to Aftershock, so you can expect to see the film for yourself sometime next year.
Before the world premiere, I sat down with Roth and Lopez for an extended interview. They talked about premiering at TIFF, how they ended up working together, the genesis of Aftershock and how the original idea was to make a sci-fi movie, being distributed by Dimension, and a lot more. In addition, with Roth and Lopez involved in a number of other projects, I got updates on Clown, The Green Inferno, and RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists which Roth called a “hip hop kung fu Avengers” and who did the soundtrack.
