Chernobyl diaries

  • We've been on similar tours: "Turistas" tossed young people to their deaths in Brazil; "Hostel" tortured them in Slovakia.
  • (New York Times)
  • Chernobyl Diaries arrives in theaters this weekend on nearly 2,500 screens, but youd be forgiven for not realizing it exists.
  • (Huffington Post)
  • Soon youll be hearing plenty of discussion about Israeli filmmaker Oren Peli and his creation of a new horror genre. That particular genre might be a bit challenging considering its the creation of a horror story around real locations.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • It sometimes seems as though people who make zombie movies (and zombie-ish movies) are trying to create a monopoly over minimizing tragedy.
  • (Mother Jones)
  • Even for fans of extreme tourism, spending an afternoon in a deserted city surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear power plant hardly sounds like a jolly holiday.
  • (Delaware Wave)
  • Industry insiders are saying Men in Black 3 will push Marvels The Avengers out of the winnners circle this Memorial Day weekend to claim No. 1 at the U.S. box office.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • MIB 3 is set to dethrone Avengers, though that film remains a potent force in its fourth outing and may earn as much as $50 million to claim the No. 2 spot; horror pic Chernobyl Diaries could take in anywhere from $10 million to north of $15 million.
  • (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Chernobyl Diaries has good credentials: It was co-written and produced by Oren Peli, the filmmaker behind Paranormal Activity, and one of its stars is the bosomy Olivia Dudley. Bouncy breasts are, of course, de rigueur in the horror genre.
  • (Sault Ste. Marie This Week)
  • After scaring up impressive box-office receipts with haunted houses, Oren Peli set his latest horror film in one of the most infamous ghost towns in the world.
