It is Friday night and i thought i would settle down to get scared with 2012 horror movie Chernobyl Diaries. I should have watched Finding Nemo instead.
It was filmed in the style of ‘drunk best friend capturing the holiday’s memories on a camera phone,’ and it just hurt my eyes. The scenery of the abandoned city would have looked fantastic in wide angled smooth sweeping shots, but unfortunately the budget didn’t allow for such extravagance.
I don’t want to give anything away in case you somehow want to waste 90 minutes of your life and watch the film yourself, but don’t expect some revolutionary style ending. The acting was OK, the idea could have been developed so much more as i had high hopes for this film. There were no real scares. I sat there the entire time with a grimace that resembles a reaction to a stinky fart.
Overall i would give the film a 2 out of 10
