Chernobyl Diaries

Experience the fallout


Chernobyl Diaries
Another who-dies-next bloodfest. We follow a group of six young holidayers who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an 'extreme tour' guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone... and thus the killing begins. Enjoy.

What the Critics say

Cape Times
Frank Scheck quote iconA basic monster movie that benefits greatly from its unique setting. Shot mainly in documentary style.
10
Box Office
Sara Maria Vizcarrondo quote iconYou can expect low-rent scares and a plot that's unaware some people on earth think about the movies they watch.
3
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconChernobyl Diaries is afflicted with a fatal flaw that damages many horror films: after a better-than-average setup and a promising first half, everything falls apart.
10
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconAll we're left with is more of the same old, same old, young person cinematic meat grinder. And there's nothing glowing about that.

Tomatometer quote iconDespite an interesting premise and spooky atmospherics, Chernobyl Diaries is mostly short on suspense and originality.
