Aftermath Review For Kids
Aftermath is currently streaming on Netflix. But don’t get confused! We’re talking about the 2021 film Aftermath, not to be confused with Keira Knightley’s The Aftermath (2018) or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s drama thriller Aftermath (2017).
Is Aftermath a true story?
The story comes from real-life couple Jerry Rice and Janice Ruhter, who had to go through events similar to the movie.
The couple bought a home in San Diego, California, in late 2011. The couple stopped receiving their mail, were signed up to $1,000 of magazine subscriptions, and had Valentine’s cards with Rice’s name sent to other women on their street.
Shortly after, they received a strange note trying to buy property. The events took a turn for the worse when their new home was re-listed for sale on a real estate website, and soon enough, they were bombarded with magazines for which they didn’t subscribe (like in the film).
