REEL DEAL: Chernobyl Diaries REVIEW

Even after 25 years after the ill-fated Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Fallout, there are still a lot of things that haunt the imagination of the many people. The Ukrainian Government allowed people to visit the town near Chernobyl a few years ago as radiation levels have gone down. This gave way to come up with a great thriller story about the deserted area.

"Chernobyl Diaries" is an original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, "Paranormal Activity." The film follows a group of six young tourists who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an "extreme tour" guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone...
