Chernobyl Diaries is a horror film directed and co-produced by Bradley Parker and Oren Peli. It was filmed in Hungary and Serbia. An tour guide hired by six tourists takes them to the empty city of Pripyat where the Chernobyl nuclear reactor accident happened. This town has been empty for about 25 years. When the group arrives at the Chernobyl Exclusion zone they are stopped from touring the site by the Ukrainian military.
The guide finds a way to get them into the site by an forest that is not watched as closely. At the river they find a dead fish that is mutated or changed in form. There are more fish like this in the river attacking a piece of beef jerky. These fish have large sharp teeth. The group visits the city where the residents eventually left. They are taken to a apartment building where they see a reactor in the Chernobyl accident. While there at the apartment they see a dead dog and a bear. It frightens them so they leave this area.
When they return to the van the wires have been chewed so they cannot leave. Night comes and they have to sit in the van. They hear noises outside and the tour guide Yuri goes outside to investigate the incident. Outside Chris is injured when he goes with Yuri so they bring him back into the van with a wounded leg. Something has taken the tour guide Yuri. The next morning they search for Yuri who has been killed by something. As they take his gun and other equipment they barely escape a pack of mutant creatures attacking them. So the plot for Chernobyl Diaries progresses becoming increasing violent.
Some of the group members decided to go get help while the others stay behind in the van. Either way both groups have equal chance of survival. They manage to keep away from the mutant dogs and find wires to rewire the van. When they return they find the van flipped over and the occupants taken by mutants. There are more attacks and the groups never really gets out of the town or escapes.
Chernobyl Diaries is violent but is about group of young people that want to tour town near the Chernobyl site . Some violence is suggested not shown directly. There is strong language not suited to younger children. This movie is for older teens and college kids with the content it has. It does not have a good story line or plot for a horror movie. There are better choices to watch than Chernobyl Diaries.
