The AFTERSHOCK US Premiere! Fantastic Fest 2012!

Published at: Sept. 26, 2012, 10:32 a.m. CST by Nordling

Nordling here.

I haven't seen AFTERSHOCK and that gets rectified tonight.  Eli Roth has been a great supporter of Harry and the site for a long time and attends BNAT when he can, so for him to come to Austin is more like a reunion of old friends than anything else.  This time he brought director Nicolas Lopez and AFTERSHOCK with him to Fantastic Fest, and I'm very excited to see it.  Here's Eli and Nicolas on the red carpet last night, looking happy and excited:

AFTERSHOCK opens next year - there is no release date scheduled yet, but I imagine that will change fairly soon.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Hack

    by godwillforgivethem

    Only AICN could still give Roth any publicity, Cabin Fever and the Hostel films were dreadful. His presence in Inglorious Basterds prevented me from watching for far too long, was surprisingly good in that, and a great film. So one plus at least. And, first?

    Saw this at TIFF...

    by The3rdMan

    I wanted to like it but it's really, really, really, bad. It makes I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell look like Little Miss Sunshine. Misogynistic, poorly acted, and just plain in poor taste. In particular a rape scene in this had me shaking with anger as it was senseless and served no device in the overall story. It was merely used to shock the audience into some sort of emotional response to a film that was devoid of all emotion. Avoid if you can.

    it's not the chinese movie which was good

    by Matt Szczerba

    new eli roth movie obviously. what was up with the lone white guy in the chinese movie though. whole thing had good acting and was heartbreaking, but the lone white person in it couldn't act for shit.

    Have to disagree about Hostel

    by MoistMuskyCamelToe

    Absolutely one of my top ten favorite horror movies. Haven't liked anything else from him, though.

    Hostel

    by Judge Briggs

    What killed that movie for me was the big wooden box that just HAPPENED to be at a train stop. Puhhleeeasseee ... I expected Snake from Medal Gear Solid to be hiding underneath it.
