What appears a curious mix of full-blown gore and 70s disaster epic, Aftershock heads to Frightfest promising plenty of big screen chills, thrills and spills.

Starring none other than genre guru Eli Roth (who has a solid pedigree when it comes to Frightfest), the film tells the tale of a handful of tourists, enjoying the final days of their vacation in Chile.

Everything seems fine and dandy, only for a giant earthquake to rip the area apart, bringing plenty of death, destruction and carnage to the streets.

Suddenly it is a desperate battle for survival for all concerned and I think we can safely assume not everyone will survive.

Alongside Roth, Aftershock stars the likes of Nicolas Martinez and Lorenza Izzo, while the fright flick is directed by Nicolas Lopez, who previously has bought the likes of superhero movie Santos to the big screen.

Aftershock plays at Frightfest Glasgow on Saturday, February 23.
