Mutant spiced chills from the maker of Paranormal Activity
On the lookout for adventure, a bunch of tourists hire an ‘extreme tour guide’ who takes them to the radioactive city of Pripyat – abandoned in the wake of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. But they are not alone.



Oren Peli is the name plastered most liberally over the marketing material for Chernobyl Diaries. He’s the director behind the phenomenon of Paranormal Activity who has since become an active producer, working on Insidious and the newer entries in the PA series.

Peli is also a producer on Chernobyl Diaries and worked on the script but the film is actually directed by Bradley Parker. A visual effects dude on titles like Let Me In and Fight Club, Parker is making his directorial debut with a horror flick that takes us to a seriously chilling locale.

Much of Chernobyl Diaries was actually shot in and around the genuinely creepy Pripyat, which was evacuated overnight during the meltdown. It’s a familiar enough setup, with a group of loud and stupid tourists who end up in the wrong place and get picked off one by one, but the location should help it to stand out from the crowd.

Peli’s pedigree to date has been sound, apart from TV experiment The River, and we think there’s plenty of potential for creeps in this horror offering.
