To help you make up your mind, check out eight whoppin’ clips from the Oren Peli-produced “Chernobyl Diaries”. This’ll teach them to go to Russia for vacation. Stupid kids.
“Chernobyl Diaries” is an original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, “Paranormal Activity.” The film follows a group of six young tourists 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…
Starring Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski, Olivia Dudley, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Nathan Phillips, Pasha D. Lychnikoff, Devin Kelley, Alex Feldman, Dimitri Diatchenko, Kristof Konrad, and directed by Brad Parker.
