Chernobyl Diaries (15)
As a holiday destination the town of Pripyat might be the least enviable in the world. It's the former home to workers at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, abandoned in haste one day in spring 1986 and now a radioactive ghost town.
In writer-producer Oren Peli's creepy drama, a group of six young vacationers pay a local tourist agent named Uri to drive them into the place.
"Bleak" hardly covers the spectacle of long derelict streets and vacant buildings where only dogs and the occasional grizzly appear to have survived. But appearances can be deceptive...
The group-in-peril plot you'll have seen many times before but you'll not forget that town in a hurry.
