It is true that horror films with exploitation of a tragic nuclear accident we don't see often. The initial idea I sustainably created smiles hope believing that will track a decent and relatively original horror film. Unfortunately it is not too late to diapseystw …

The "Chernobyl Diaries ' reminds audience to the very nasty incident in April of 1986 when it exploded the reactor 4 of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant by killing and infecting thousands of people and animals in Eastern Europe. The Ukrainian city of Pripyat, which by then had become a place of residence of the employees of the station, has been abandoned, being literally what we call ghost town. In this city so opting to make six new tourism travelers paying even a tour guide "extreme tourism" to lead them to their destination. And while tourists manage to enter the Pripyat overcoming initial obstacle of military blocs, will soon realize that they are not alone in the deserted town. A terrifying threat lurks with extremely wild moods …

This all sounds nice but what about in purely Executive piece? Unfortunately we have a lot of frustration with a few good moments. Initially, let us mention that given the impression that the film will be shown through personal camera of the protagonists (in the style of found footage that is). Soon, however, indicated the traditional method of filming despite some unfortunate shots the camera shakes, irritatingly. Anyway, then we know the characters that will feature and without much delay the young with their tour guide arrive in Pripyat. Strange events start there and gradually the horror and suspense are introduced in the movie until the end. Of course the occasional scenes of horror and suspense is not standing enough to earn the Viewer as the negative elements outnumber any positive.

Horror Trivia

The shooting took place in Serbia and in Hungary while the footage not aired earlier than the established release date to assess by critics.

Firstly, there is not one likable character, not one that you can fit with him re my child or even to slightly shake your psychic thy world. Secondly, we find up to unrealistic and naïve statements. A typical example of the tent tourists exploring a complex when suddenly pops out of a room a brown bear! The bear makes a frantic race to a corridor passing between tourists and lost in the building as if non-nothing happens! Another example is the extraordinary behavior of actors while trapped in the town for 1.5-2 days none of them complain about hunger or thirst.

Thirdly, the cliché is once again present in annoying degree (cars break down, communications that fail etc) with the film suffers in forming a separate identity. Fourthly, the incomplete portrayal of the threat that surrounds the tourists more xenerwnei than scares. Certainly in some horror films the parsimonious view of "bad" of the case increases the suspense and terror, but in "Diaries" Chernobyl, this option does not work effectively. restraint Fifthly, the direction is generally weak and inadequate. Therefore …

Movie Review Highlights
  • The scene that a dammed couple accepts wild attack by unknown assailants inside their van. The scene stands out somewhat from the others because of it filmed by the victims themselves.
  • Another well-made scene where the protagonists face a small, immobile child (apparently) the time across a shadowy figure lurks …
