Oren Peli, the man behind "Paranormal Activity," is back with a new horror film called "Chernobyl Diaries." Bradley Parker, who is making his helming debut, is directing from a script by Peli. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: The film follows a group of friends who, while vacationing in Europe, find themselves stranded in the abandoned city only to discover that they are not alone.
"Chernobyl Diaries" is set to hit theaters on May 25th.
Few years ago, I've been to Ukraine and I discovered a beautiful country (with beautiful women). Among others, I've met the daughter's father who was the ingineer who was in charge at the time of the catastrophe to design the cement "coffin" to secure the nuclear power plant from its radioactivity. The father in question was a big Russian man, about 2 meters tall, just like Vladimir Klitschko (I saw the photos). After the job was complete, he died 18 months or so from the radiations. The family was left with nothing after his death. Nothing is more unbeareable to watch in innocent people's eyes the sadness they endured since then. While I stand in front of them, I really felt miserable on that moment.
It was a miracle that the radiations didn't spread all over the planet within the 24 hours at that time. They said on the news that the wind "was pushed" outside the earth continents... Right, and my nickname is Franck f*cking BULITT!
Anyway, enjoy the f*cking flick!

Mink- I bow to you, good find on Jake. That made my night, I haven't laughed that hard in years.
Good idea to stage horror film in Pripja scenery (not new idea, however, remeber S.T.A.L.K.E.R. the VG, or COD:MW). What I do not like, is the "group hero". It just do NOT work. It is just a bodycount, and the last one survives. I hope Oren Peli proves me wrong but I dont think so. Why are writers nowadays such a posseyes?

@Bullit: Very interesting story.
@Badchad: lol and thanks, yep, got his number. He won't be back for a while, I bet.
My question about this movie is thus: was it filmed at Pripyat? I would think not, but damned if some of the shots don't look eerily spot on for that creepy place.
I would suggest people watch this one, if not for the horror, then to get a good view at what such a place looks like, even if it's all just a clever reconstruction.
Hey Mink, I also a good laugh yesterday with you and that troll. Man, you're good.
One extraordinay thing that had followed in Chernobyl is that the vegetation, the trees and the flowers have continued to bloom and scientists don't know why despite the high level of radiations. Very interesting.

Hmmm, dunno why that would be, Bullit. Maybe DNA error correction in simpler life-forms is more effective, or maybe radiation isn't as bad as they claim.
I do know that people still return there, and a number of large animals have been throughout the area. I read that even now that one of the buildings there was/is under renovation.
I'd like to see people return. Damned shame though they can't find a way to clean up the radiation. Trap and store it somehow.
