I just finished watching Chernobyl Diaries. I saw there were mixed reviews but I thought I would give it a shot. The beginning was your typical young travellers going thru Europe and one of them finds someone to take them on this big adventure.Once they get to the Chernobyl area, things begin falling apart and I must say from that point on ,I was hooked. The movie did exactly what it was suppose to do ,I really felt engrossed in what was going on and uncomfortable. In other words, it delivered.

The idea of an "extreme tour" of an abandoned city is a good one, this city being Pripyat, which was home to the workers and their families that ran the Chernobyl reactor, up until the disaster in 1986 which led to its abandonment. A group of young tourists go in a van to see this place but are turned away at the checkpoint due to "maintenance". Their tour guide, however, knows more than one way into the place, so the group gets to see the abandoned city, but something else is going on and they're stranded when someone or something tampers with their van. The good bits are that the film is creepy and the atmopshere is good. The bad bits is that the film becomes increasingly clumsy and events are a bit beyond belief as the film rolls on toward the end. Yeah, it's a movie, and things are not necessarily meant to be believed. As the surviving members flee for their lives from mostly unseen assailants and you realize where they actually are, it's a bit shocking, but the ending itself is just a bit too ridiculous. Overall, it's worth a watch, not great but definitely passable. 3 out of 5 stars.

I am shocked by the all the negative reviews about this movie. I am one of those people who does not need sex, nudity, or gore in my horror movies. I love movies that set mood and atmosphere. The best horror movies do not need to rely on gore to be scary, nor do they need to show monsters throughout the whole movie. Showing just enough so that a person's mind fills in the blanks are the best kind of movies. Chernobyl Diaries is not original and the ending does not really come as a great surprise, but for a low budget film this one is great. The empty buildings actually sent shivers up my spine during the day, let alone at night. This movie really succeeds with its use of light and shadow. Thus for me it was the ride getting to the ending that made this movie. Do not let other negative reviews sway you, rent it first and check it out for yourself.

Good production. Nice directing. And, actors were pretty impressive.. Does such a good job of keeping you intrigued... They COULD have done SO MUCH MORE with this story-line. This is when I wish I were in the business of editing films!! Had the ending been different, this movie could have been on a whole new level...!!! I could have given it an end that would have risen it's rating by,a minimum of, 2 or 3 points!

I'll give it 2 stars for the simple fact that the first 15 minutes or so of the film is decent. The setting is original but that's pretty much it.
If you've seen The Hills Have Eyes 1 or 2, then you've seen this movie also. Any movie goer will be able to predict who dies next in the group with astonishing accuracy. Many of the scenes in the movie are just simply ridiculous and obviously meant to prolong the storyline. It would have been a good 45 minute short film but the director saw fit to include another 45 minutes of cliche 'Hills Have Eyes' horror into the movie.

(Slight spoiler alert)
I began losing interest in the movie when a bear comes blazing down the hallway but what did the movie in for me was when the ex-spetsnaz (Russian special forces) takes running off into the woods at night with just a 9mm and no light to find out what's making a strange noise. He already knew the woods were extremely dangerous at night. Why not just stay in the van until morning when he said he would fix it? To me, the scene was solely shot so that the movie would keep dragging on. Plus, why would you start blaming and yelling at the guy who quite literally, is their only hope of getting out alive. It's just common sense not to piss off the guy who can fix the van and has the only gun.
Next plot hole, the girl who was taking all the pictures see's a guy in one of here pictures looking at them from a 6 story window but says nothing to anybody about it....why? So far, theyhave only seen dogs but now she knows there are other things here also. Why wouldn't you share that information?

First, the quailty of the movie viewing it over my Xbox 360 with the Amazon Instant App was outstanding, no complaints on that front.

Second, the movie itself....my son saw this in the theaters and as we share a love of all things scary, he highly recommended that I watch it when it was released to DVD/BluRay. We watched it together and I was left disappointed. While the plot certainly left room for what could have been a truly scary movie, the actual film left much to be desired.

There were only a handful of suspenseful scenes that you want in a horror flick. And as far as the "bad guys", you really never get a good look at them. Sometimes, that can make for a better, more intense scare - fear of the unknown - but this movie let you see enough to feel like you should've gotten to see more.

I didn't have enough interest after watching the movie to find out if it was actually filmed at the Chernobyl disaster site. I have to say, if it wasn't, they did do a good job with the scenery then - it looked very realistic. Other than that, it appeared to be just another low-bugdet psuedo-zombie movie and with that being such a prolific genre, there are many choices that are much better scares than this one.
