This looked so good in the trailer, but it made no sense. For one you pretty much never really see what the people are running from half the time. Jesse McCartney's character disappears out of no where, and you don't even figure out what happens to him, for all we know he got away.
Decent suspense once you get into it;however,the zombielike people and wolves are not scary at all after watching shows like walking dead...
I went into the theater with low expectations... this movie fell below that. I'd also give it a 0 if possible.
I would give 0 stars if that was an option.
the plot is good...but there is absolutely no substance in this movie. Nothing to scare you.
I actually liked this movie, thought it was spooky and a good story, some parts are dumb so I'm giving it a three/five
Another cool story idea ruined by terrible acting, and a horribly predictable script. I loved the idea of going to Chernobyl but the film was poorly executed.
spooky!....if you like horror movies this flick is your cup of tea. the plot is believable and the film is good
its a good scare! pretty good stuff!
a very suspenseful horror film. i sat on the edge of my seat waiting for it to end!!
a good scare, but the plot was a bit predictable.
i rated it two stars for a good plot line. however the movie was so quick and predictable. it also involved a few idiotic mistakes from a character stand point making it somewhat frustrating
this was not a bad movie, not great but sufficiently tense enough with a few good 'boo' moments. the characters were not totally unbelievable and they did seemingly normal things after making initial bad decision.
very disappointed. not even a ghost movie. unrealistic. save your money or wait for video, seriously. i was gun ho about the previews and was sorily disappointed.
this movie was a disappointment..very slow ..and predictable
anyone else think oren peli looks like stephen harper?!?!
this movie was ok but reminded me of blair witch project and cloverfield.
don't pay good $ for this one
this movie was a waste of time . it goes absolutely no where. no story. ends horribly.
not my best afternoon at the movies. i felt sea sick from the strange use of the camera. just another "scary" movie.
this is a fantastic movie!! kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. well staged & acted!! go see this!
interesting and gives you a lot to think about but not as good as i thought it would be.
a different movie
scary!! bring someone to hold on to!
This movie is awful , you will be sick of it in no time
Awful. I was angered by the time wasted. Motion sick? You will be
this is a fairly good movie, with lots of scenes that make you jump. just not as scary as i thought it would be.
blyehhh = nauseating camera work. i fully understand the use of 'first person perspective', but with 7 key characters, the 8th/9th is the idiot phantom camera man/men who can hardly hold the camera properly worse than an amateur video handicam user from the 1980's. arrghhh, it only took 30 minutes into the movie on arrival into chernobyl for me to force myself to watch the rest. most of it was very predictable, hardly scary except the one moment not in the trailer, but the rest are just expansions on the trailer you've already seen. dumb movie. i was so nauseated for a full hour after the end of the movie. it could have been done better with better camera work, the idea is good, but executio
worse movie ive seen in a while . if you want to waste your money, then by all means watch this movie
it had its moments however was very predictable.
chernobyl diaries was one big ball o nadda. i actually had high expectations of this movie, that was my downfall. don'e even wait for the dvd, just pretend like this movie didn't even happen.
a bit cheezy but entertaining
not so scary kind of boring so like an american movie its all the same aliens,zombies,or flesh eating mutans.wow can we really get out and make a good movie. really!
very good plot line. scares were good.
very suspenseful! had a slow start to the movie but it was intense and made me jump at parts.
it had really good potential to be really good. it had a few parts were you jumped out of your seat but other then that its the same old horror movie :( really disappointed.
you've seet his movie a hundred times before...but this time it's kids chased by mutants in chernobyl...yeah!!!
i wonder whether tey filmed it n ne calgary, or perhaps east vancouver?
typical horror movie and you kind of feel like you know what is going to happen. it dragged a bit in places but otherwise entertaining.
omg what a scary movie!
i love horror movies.this one with its back story is going to be great.i can see the people that did not get out being mutants.will be a lot like the hills have eyes!
would love to see a sequel!
a fun summer movie.
