Selena Gomez talked about pushing the envelope when she appeared in “Spring Breakers.” So what’s she doing in slasher horror film “Aftershock?” Ha! See if you can find her in the film’s new trailer.

Don’t believe gossip sites like HollywoodLife, which are hyping Selena’s appearance in the movie.

She only has a small cameo role. Still a gross slasher movie seems to be a step down for the former Disney teen queen.

She protested that she was uncomfortable enough smoking and drinking in her teen caper movie “Spring Breakers,” with Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine.

So what’s her mystery role?

Spoiler alert! Selena is on screen for all of two minutes, if that. Ariel Levy and Nicolas Matinez role into a club to score chicks. They meet up with Selena’s character who immediately shoots them down. See! Still a goodie two-shoes.

The film, co-written by Eli Roth (“Hostel” films and “Cabin Fever”), has a realistic enough premise. Although fictional, it’s based on a true story about the aftermath of a 2010 earthquake in Chile.

Civil order broke down and people ran rampant through the town, looting and rioting. Of course, the film goes much further in its horrifying depiction of the natural disaster’s aftermath.

Selena came by the part by chance. “I was in Chile doing a concert and [Eli] was shooting a movie called ‘Aftershock’ and he asked if I wanted to make a cameo. And I did,” she told MTV.

The film is being produced by Dimension Films, responsible for the utterly ridiculous flop, “Piranha 3DD,” a comedy-horror movie about deadly piranhas that find their way into a water park.

“Aftershock” was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. The seven critics who reviewed it skew to the positive, giving the film a 71 percent rating on rottentomatoes, a website that tracks reviews.

“Struggles to strike a tone between intense and comically cruel as it picks off its cast,” writes film.com’s William Goss, who panned the movie.

On the positive side, Jordan Hoffman of screencrush writes “by coloring within the lines it is an effective midnight movie.”

Aftershock has no release date at the moment, but is slated to open in 2013. Check out the trailer below and click the link to follow TheImproper on Twitter for all the latest movie updates.
