The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Chernobyl Diaries (2012)

Starring:Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Jonathan Sadowski, Jesse McCartney, Olivia Dudley, Dimitri Diatchenko
Director: Bradley Parker


Premise:
A group of urban explorers sneak into the abandoned city of Pripyat. They quickly find out others still remain and want to eat the group.

My Take:
The story isn't the problem with the movie. I actually like the idea and the filming. The details are what kills it as most of the characters are one dimensional cliches (especially the foreigners) which the viewer could care less about. I think the cast does well with what it's given. The movie does look good, dispite being filmed in a found footage style.

Rating: In the middle
