Interview: Aftershock’s Eli Roth

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On May - 9 - 2013 0 Comment

Aftershock PosterWhen you put Eli Roth’s name on a film, you know what you’re getting, but only to a degree. There are just no bounds to how far this guy will go to tear helpless victims apart in the most gruesome ways possible and in this case, that means flying down to Chile to shoot a post-earthquake bloodbath.

Roth both produced and stars in the film as Gringo, an American divorcee looking to let loose and have a good time with his buddy Ariel (Ariel Levy), and Ariel’s lifelong friend, Pollo (Nicholás Martínez). While the guys are soaking up the Chile nightlife with their new lady friends Monica, Kylie, and Irina (Andrea Osvárt, Lorenza Izzo, Natasha Yarovenko) the fun comes to a crashing halt when the region is rocked by a devastating earthquake. As if surviving the mid-quake destruction inside the nightclub isn’t enough, once the group hits the surface, they’re faced with tsunami sirens, vicious escaped convicts, and more.

While in New York supporting the film’s May 10th limited release, Roth sat down with a group of journalists to discuss working in Chile, dealing with the lingering sentiments surrounding the earthquake of 2010, the lasting effect of horror versus other genres and more. Check it all out for yourself in the video below and catch “Aftershock” in theaters tomorrow.

Warning: This interview is loaded with profanity!
