I don’t know about you, but I’ve been DYING to take a mini-vacay to Chernobyl. The gorgeous scenery, the clean and pure air….the remnants of a nuclear disaster that happened over 20 years ago. What other place would you rather be? Umm….NOT.
The trailer for the new Oren Peli and Brian Witten-produced horror, Chernobyl Diaries, has finally hit the web and let me tell you, the storyline sounds AMAZING. Right. Because any group of twenty-something friends would totally want to go to Chernobyl for a vacation. I’m sorry, but if my friend told me that he was talking me to Chernobyl, I would tell him to go f*ck himself.
The film looks like it garnered it’s idea from an episode of the SyFy show, Destination Truth, only…it’s way worse. Oren Peli really needs to move on from the whole ghost thing and if you want to sell me on a horror movie, here’s an idea: Don’t put Jesse McCartney in it. Thank you.
I didn’t know that just anybody could walk into Chernobyl for the hell of it. Isn’t that place quarantined or at least under close security? Oh well, in horror movies you can do anything.
The film, in theaters May 28 (seriously, this is getting a theatrical release?), follows a group of friends who become stranded in Chernobyl and find themselves being hunted by the past residents of the broken city. Really?
Check out the cheesy trailer (which I borrowed from Bloody-Disgusting) below. Are you scared?
