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?Read more ›
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.

This is one of my favorite scary movies. It is such a great concept, first off all. A place as creepy as Chernobyl certainly deserved its own movie. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Carissa

I was a little dubious about the idea at first. It's a great concept, but films rarely treat radiation with any degree of realism, so I wasn't sure how this would work out. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ghostfishe
