Review: Chernobyl Diaries 2012

Contains spoilers, be warned.

Synopsis: Chernobyl Diaries follows a group of six young vacationers 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…

Verdict: 3/10. Yes, I am a person who doesn't really like to watch scary movies, and that's where the 3 marks come in, cos they did give me a scare in some parts. But if I had to dissect the storyline, it obviously isn't worth a trip to the cinema. Trust me. There are so many loopholes, and so many unexplained incidents.

  1. There are no ghosts, much as the trailer would like you to believe.
  2. There are no zombies, which was my thought after the ghosts part was eliminated.
  3. They are patients/victims of the original incident. mutated and desire human flesh. Abit potong stim eh :/ How come they can live so long oh? more than 25 years kan? :/
  4. Everyone dies -.-"
