Chernobyl Diaries is an American horror film in 2012, Chernobyl Diaries was not screened for critics, but has received negative reviews.
“Chernobyl Diaries” is actually its best when nobody is talking. When they first arrive in the abandoned city of Pripyat, it’s completely silent. The dilapidated buildings, remaining carnival equipment, and the sound of nothing is the movie at its strongest. Unfortunately these moments never last long as somebody always has to chime in with something sarcastic or completely obvious like, “I thought you said this place was deserted!” Serves you right for thinking, “extreme tourism,” sounded like a good idea.
A group of young adults, Chris (McCartney), Amanda (Kelley), and Natalie (Dudley), are traveling across Europe. They stop in Kiev, Ukraine to visit Chris’s brother, Paul (Sadowski), before heading on to Moscow, Russia where Chris intends to propose to his girlfriend Natalie.
After a night on the town, the group decides, reluctantly, to go on an “extreme tour” of the abandoned atomgrad Prypiat which sits in the shadow of Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, site of the infamous disaster.
They spend the day exploring the abandoned city, which had been home to Chernobyl workers and their families before they were forced to evacuate over night. readmore the plot of Chernobyl Diaries
