Storyline: Searching for a happy ending to a tale of unimaginable disaster and horror, nine strangers find themselves holed up together in a farmhouse cellar in rural Texas. The United States has hastily become embroiled in World War 3. A young doctor named Hunter survives the nuclear attack and is thrown together by happenstance with a group of wounded and frightened victims, including Elizabeth, a strong-willed confidant to Hunter, Brad - an antagonistic redneck jackass, and Jennifer, a barely coherent young woman suffering from severe post-traumatic stress. Together, they attempt to endure the devastating holocaust as they struggle with claustrophobia and conflicting personalities. In a makeshift shelter, Hunter and his dying companions wait for news from the government while fending off hunger, radiation sickness, and a horde of frightened and dying refugees.

Reviews
No pillows, and the mystical origin of that brains
Escapist entertainment no – this film shows the 'original' sin of motion picture: it carries you away not to entertain you but eat you, chew you up and spit you out. Hollywood is not here with its heartthrob, its please you to buy a ticket, its placate your desire to see "everything is awesome," to quote from the Lego's movie. I do have to say if you want to slit your wrists don't watch this film tonight.

I don't know if you've noticed it, but today especially there are a number of end of the world movies out. If you watch this one you'll probably not see the end of the world, but the end of a couple of cities as we know them – the closest look at apocalypse limited or otherwise in cinema thus far, hands down, unless you're old enough to remember Testament. Pity this film chooses a total U.S. nuclear holocaust as opposed to a limited nuclear disaster, but then so does dream, amplifies things so to show them, and this film does reach those engrossing depths of human nature, unknown actors though it has, unknown but lost in their parts, and, consequently, you too.

You just think I'm in an armchair with my review rant, but in 1982 I parachuted with my A team into what was then West Germany with a tactical nuke (our captain carried), Donny Duke that Green Beret that found the world was not what it seemed, an unquestioning patriot from Texas. You don't know the carelessness with which we treat nukes. You don't know how close we come. Only weapons grade plutonium we lacked. Sound familiar?

I wonder at the mistake Netflix made with this movie, releasing this one instead of the Polish movie of the same name and year it was supposed to release, how that happened, because without that glitch this unheard of film would not have gotten a wide audience. Who did it, purposefully I mean, man or fate? We only know that this film gives both knowledge and a warning both almost unpalatable to our movie going tastes. We are shown what we need to do in the event of a nuclear explosion, and we are shown more in the bargain, uncomfortably more than what we bargained for: ourselves at one and the same time the worm and the demigod. You have to watch intimately to see this film is not as hopeless as it seems, with the 'good doctor', the hero of the film, reduced to barbarity and the good people shown to be the animals they are.

If you have an eye for the depths you'll hear the token Black, here well chosen, a cultural determinant thought to be a nobody, tell us what's up. Listen to his report, how the immigrants are lined up and shot, how people just give in to their inhumanity, how despite all that this is your moment in the sun with destiny, and you don't want to meet your maker a coward shaking in your boots. He gives us such an example of what humanity is more made of than the beast with his good death – his self-sacrifice to take the body of a child away so that it doesn't rot in the room of our hope hopeless though it is. See the old man die with such dignity not a burden but a blessing to all, the child die slowly not complaining at his pain, and watch the despicable man you want shot change into the man you want to be there when you need someone to depend on, and you will see the power of cinema, and maybe too a future for some unfortunate city or two somewhere or another on our crowded warring planet. Can you stand and face them?

Depressing Beyond Belief ... What A Wonderful Movie
OMG This Was A Great Movie ... A Group Of People Try To Survive After A Nuclear Attack ... It Was Sad, Horrifying, Heartbreaking, Dismal, Depressing And More ... The Message Is Very Clear This Is What Waits For Us If We As A Species Do Not Change Our Ways, A Tale Of Unimaginable Disaster And Horror ... The Movie Was Made For 2.5 Million Which Makes It Low Budget By Regular Standards And Yet Everyone Working On It Gave It The Respect It Deserves And It Plays Like A Major Budget Film ... The Acting By The Whole Cast Was Exceptional And Believable ... I Did Not Know What To Expect But This Was One Of The Best Surprises I Have Had In A While ...

An Original and Brilliant Work
It is a kind of film like 'The Road(2009)'; poetic, rich with visuals, emotionally well-balanced and sustains on human emotions rather than mere thrills. It is one of the best post-apocalyptic thrillers of the decade, yet very underrated. This film is a feast for the lovers of quality thrillers.

Background score is unique and performances are top-notch. Set and costume design are very authentic. Cinematography is fine. Overall mood created by director Peter Engertis is artistic and beautiful yet fearsome. Quality of the fear fused with human emotions and helplessness is very depressing and dark.

Wrong movie, wrong time, wrong everything.
Calling this movie depressing would be uplifting it. Through some mix up at Netflix we ended up receiving this sad and miserable movie that was nothing at all what we ordered and expected. I love post-apocalyptic movies so I gave it a shot. Just about when I thought it could not get any worse, it did. The AFTERMATH we were waiting for is no longer available through Netflix which is too bad since I was looking forward to it. I'm sure the script was probably much better than the execution. Interesting production values was just about all it had for me, if that much. This might be one of those movie that the sequel turns out to be way better than the original. That's my opinion and your mileage may vary.

Brilliant
I loved it! This is a great movie!

So the nukes have dropped all over the world. The movie focuses on a group who hide in a basement and try to survive. Until the end there is not much more to it then that.

HOWEVER the acting is terrific. C.J. Thomason is incredible! Edward Furlong and Monica Keena are awesome too (for a change). The story and characterization really draws the viewer in and the direction is so claustrophobic and intense that you cant help but be moved by what happens.

I am a fan of the apocalyptic film so I really enjoyed it. I give it an 8

Reality TV-ish film reminiscent of the TV movie "The Day After"
I probably should of rated this movie an 8 instead of a seven but it wasn't an "A" movie ("A" movies start at an 8 rating for me or else they're not "A" movies... ) If you, as well as I, love: B-movies, independent films, low-budget movies, documentaries/docu-dramas and of course the "post-apocalyptic" genre then you will like this movie. It has a reality TV feel to it and is along the lines of the made for TV movie "The Day After" but with a smaller cast and budget etc.

I've been watching the "Doomsday Prepper" shows on TV for the past season or so and know much about the survival situation that is to come after the bombs drop, esp now with us letting Iran get nukes and ICBM missiles to deliver them, in the next 5-10 years (as of 7-14-2015) and only a fool or extreme optimist can't see this coming. Well this movie has one leader who sort of knows some of the the things needed to survive at least the initial onslaught...

By watching this movie I've learned that I'm not as prepared as I thought I was. I learned various things about not only vulnerabilities to exposure but how essential medical supplies and training are.

This movie should be a wake up call for civilians to learn about how to survive large scale disasters. It's more a "warn-a-mentary" than an entertainment pill.

I wish I could give it a zero
The people who gave this the great reviews it didn't deserve must be friends of the filmmakers. Done on the cheap, the acting is bad, the story is dull and predictable (I think they were going to make a zombie movie and changed their minds), and the scientific accuracy is laughable. These people out in the open when the bombs dropped, aren't going to survive even 30 minutes, let alone days. Where were the firestorms? the great winds that the release of nuclear weapons causes? These were just many of the gaffs. This was like a low budget version of The Day After. Want to see a truly great terrifying nuclear war film? Get a hold of Peter Watkin's The War Games or Threads. As for this, I wish I could just forget I've seen it.

Child Support Due...
It seems like whenever Edward Furlong needs to pay child support, we end up with about three of these stinkers per year.

Is it really all that bad? Pretty much.

'Aftermath' is about a group of strangers (original) locked up together inside of a basement during a nuclear apocalypse. It's supposed to be a realistic view on how we would act during such a tragic event. Why this needs a 90 minute runtime is beyond me, because the character development still ends up being awful, even though the entire film is based around that factor. When the action finally does set it, it ends up being entirely unnecessary. Why not just end the film the way you began it? Did we really need a group of zombie hillbillies that have no clue what the hell they're doing? The film wouldn't have been any worse.

Random Ramblings Of A Madman: Looking at Monica Keena for 92 minutes will never be thought of as a negative, and she makes the time fly by, but your film's success should never be based around that factor alone. As for Eddie Furlong - Those 'T2' paychecks no longer cover life's responsibilities, so unless his local dealer decides to have a clearance sale, we should be seeing more Furlong 'greats' in the near future.

Not bad for this kind of movie
When I first found out about this movie, I looked it up here and read the previous user comments, and I was intrigued that people were pretty much split on the movie, some liking it and some hating it. This intrigued me enough to go out and rent the Blu-ray.

I thought in the end it was pretty good. Now, I feel I should mention that I have an interest in post-apocalypse movies as well as low budget B movies, so there was some appeal for me that other viewers might not find.

But there is some other stuff - good stuff - that I think might please other viewers. It is well acted, with even fallen actor Edward Furlong gives a good performance. The direction is very atmospheric - you can really feel the grit and gloom the characters are experiencing. The movie definitely does not sugar-coat the situation, and what it portrays I think would be accurate if the situation did happen in real life.

There are a few unanswered questions, like how the survivors happened to have a stethoscope, but such questions didn't concern me that much since most of the rest of the movie is solid. If I have any real complaint, it is that the direction is too up and close to the actors at times. I realize that 90% of the movie takes place in a basement, but I think the director still could have given a somewhat wider view of the situation at times. Despite that, however, I would recommend this movie.

The Nuclear Apocalypse movie
I want to give it a higher rating. They got so many things right. Script, direction acting all well done. The top review had a good summary, except that he thought some engineers would be able to tell him where the movie was wrong about radiation. They wouldn't. One of the few times that the cinema ever got remotely close, and this by far was the closest. The things some might want to quibble about would go the way depicted if people didn't know what they were doing. Which is the case here. No one for a change is given the role of brainiac of the universe. They really don't know what they're doing. They also don't have a prepper/survivalist who has been training for this contingency to help them out. Just some regular folks who are trying to deal. Supply issues are glossed over, but so are most character introductions because in the real world people don't run and announce their profession/helpful hobbies and quirky humanizing interests to those they've known for a long time, and even less so to strangers.

A+ for apocalypse vs humanity. A- for humanity survival needs. A for not hand holding the nincompoops who need every little detail explained to the. Although with all the good effort, and work in this wrongly maligned little gem, somehow it never gels to be more of a movie than an apocalypse movie. In that niche genre, where it doesn't intersect with action (cough The Road Warrior cough) it's the best you'll find.
