Given that this Oren (PARANORMAL ACTIVITY) Peli created project was originally touted as yet another 'found footage' fright flick, we can't say that we were particularly looking forward to it. Well, it gives me great pleasure then to announce that this actually looks pretty damn good, and most importantly does NOT depend wholly on the tired FF gimmick at all. Check out the trailer below to see some annoying characters put through the ringer for going on a wanky 'extreme tourism' vacation to Chernobyl, where an estimated 93,000 people died and 270,000 developed cancer after the cataclysmic accident in 1986. Yaaaay, extreme tourism ruuuules! We didn't say it was perfect. Enjoy...
CHERNOBYL DIARIES opens Stateside May 25th. A UK release should follow shortly. Unless it bombs. In which case we'll see it go straight to DVD sometime much later in the year.
