"Have you heard of extreme tourism?"

The idea of horror film set in the radiation zone surrounding the Chernobyl reactor is bursting with potential, so it's a shame that Chernobyl Diaries is such a dismal failure. Rather than a competent bone-chiller, the film steals wholesale from Wes Craven's 1977 shocker The Hills Have Eyes as well as at least a dozen other horror pictures. The f... read more

I thought there could have been a chance with this movie based on it's interesting premise, it's an intriguing idea but this is an example of what not to do.

I'll start off on a good note. For all the problems with this movie, they got a few things right. The movie actually starts off good, we're introduced to the characters in an engaging way and once we get to the town, the commande... read more

Chernobyl Diaries - Better than I thought it was going to be. Some good scares and it held my attention throughout. Worth the watch. 7/10

" Review by PvtCaboose91 Unfortunatly for me I watched this film early in the evening and didn't manage to sleep through the whole film. Luckily this is not a 'found footage' film but the camera work is juvenile at best. It seems that it is impossible to show two things on screen at the same time. Ah but of course what was I thinking... the split focus isn't a handheld camera setting and is something you actually need to know what your doing and stage correctly. Ah, and the ever tiresome "Let"

" viewed: November 24, 2012 Not very scary, I expected something better. I knew that there will be mutated residents of the city, but I thought they would be frightening, and unfortunately it was not. It was nice to see an interesting picture of the abandoned city, and besides nothing special."

B-grade, dull and uneventful

“"Have you heard of extreme tourism?"

The idea of horror film set in the radiation zone surrounding the Chernobyl reactor is bursting with potential, so it's a shame that Chernobyl Diaries is such a dismal failure. Rather than a competent bone-chiller, the film steals wholesale from Wes Craven's 1977 shocker The Hills Have Eyes as well as at least a dozen other horror pictures. The film was masterminded by Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli, who co-scripted with Shane Van Dyke and Carey Van Dyke. For those unaware, Shane wrote, directed and starred in The Asylum's Titanic II, and Carey is another Asylum regular. It's hardly surprising, then, that the picture is so vehemently B-grade, dull and uneventful.

"10.10 Mielenkiintoisista lähtökohdista on saatu irti alussa erittäin paljon ja Pripyat tuntuukin erittäin kolkolta ja oivalliselta paikalta tehdä kauhuelokuvaa. Alussa elokuva onnistuu pitämään itsensä mielenkiintoisena pysymänä hyvinkin realistisena, mutta samalla väläyttää katsojalle merkkejä jostain yliluonnollisesta. Loppua kohden kuitenkin hommalta tuntuu lähtevän hieman jalat alta ja aivan lopussa koko homma suoraan sanoen kaatuu täysin. Hyödyntää hyvin hiljaisuutta "

"6.10 Pripyatin ja Tsernobylin ympäristössä onkin jotain mystisiä zombityyppejä jotka syövät paikalle tulevia eXXXXXtriiim-matkailijoita. Whatatwist! Vaikka zombikonsepti on röyhkeydessään hauska, elokuva ei ole mitenkään ihmeellinen. Maisemat ovat komeita, mutta käsivarakameralla kuvatut otokset ovat pitkälti tylsän harmaita. Ärsytti oikeastaan, että kameraa käytetään kuin seitsemättä mukanareissaajaa, ja ignoorataan täysin, no, elokuvakameran käytön ABC. Yhtä hyvin t"

I'll start off on a good note. For all the problems with this movie, they got a few things right. The movie actually starts off good, we're introduced to the characters in an engaging way and once we get to the town, the commanded do a nice job of raisng the tension and atmosphere. When they first get to the town and explore it a bit it's undeniably creepy. The whole setting is just oozing with atmosphere and creepiness. Then nightfall begins and that's when things go downhill.

We're introduced to a couple who joins the gang to go on the ToureTte way these characters are introduced you know they're going to die so” read more

"80% Excellent horror film with a genius premise. Six tourists hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploration, they soon discover they are not alone. Genuinely scary and believable, turn it on, turn the lights out and hold someones hand. "
