First of all I just want to say that I find the premise of this movie to be incredibly disrespectful of all the people who lost their lives during the Chernobyl disaster. The story of a group of six young vacationers who decide to go on an "extreme tourism" escapade, venturing into the abandoned city, soon finding that they are not alone. The latest horror film that tries to capitalize on the "found footage" success of films like Paranormal Activity is not particularly scary, inventive, or interesting. First of all, this film's very misleading in the fact that it is not actually a found footage film, yet it's cinematography is very much in that vein. There is no character behind the camera, yet we still have to endure the headache inducing camera work. The film provides a few decent jump scares I suppose, but it's a pretty stale concept and I personally found the whole thing to be wildly predictable. It brings absolutely nothing new to the table, just opting to go through the standard motions for the genre. Even the creatures or whatever you wish to call them, are essentially zombies, which is another element of how unoriginal and stale this one is. It's kinda a shame, cause the setting itself is particularly creepy, but the execution in this particular film is stale.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
