Chernobyl Diaries, the Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and Brian Witten-produced horror survival film, opens in theaters today from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures. While it’s far from perfect, I can’t say I didn’t have a good time.
“‘Chernobyl Diaries’ is actually a pretty fun ride… Is it a great movie? No. Is it a new horror classic? No. But, in all honesty, I can’t say I didn’t have a good time, because I did. And I can’t say I didn’t jump, because I did that too. As a horror fan – if you’re looking for a reasonably well executed take on a set of tropes that you love, you could easily do worse.”
Directed by Brad Parker, Chernobyl Diaries stars Jonathan Sadowski, Devin Kelley, Jesse McCartney, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Nathan Phillips, Ingrid Bolso Berdal and Dimitri Diatchenko. In the film, “A group of friends become stranded in an eerie and desolate city. Years before in the aftermath of a nuclear disaster, nature has begun to reclaim everything. As the sun sets on this radioactive ghost town, inhuman cries cut through the night air. It seems they are not alone.”
