Forbidden City: Chernobyl Diaries



SM Cinexclusive brings us Chernobyl Diaries this November for a fright and a half. Last Monday, we were invited to the Advance Screening to this terrifying movie, brought by the creator of the Paranormal Activity films.

Chernobyl Diaries is an American flick about six tourists who wanted to experience an extreme adventure. Abandoned for more than 25 years, Uri, the tour guide, takes them to the city of Pripyat, the former dwelling of the workers of the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor. Before their adventure started, Ukranian guards have already forbidden them to enter the city due to unmentioned problems, but went through the guided trip via a special entrance.


What they thought was an abandoned city was a place where strange things happen. Disaster even struck them when they were forced to spend the night there because their van wouldn’t start. Not knowing that they were never alone, they were taken by unknown creatures one by one.

This movie brought me to jump off my seat. Even if I couldn’t understand what was chasing the characters, the dark background and the mysteriously abandoned place gave me the creeps. I think the movie would probably better if they mentioned how the so-called “patients” come to chase people who go the city and why they abduct them. Its fresh to see Jesse McCartney being the reluctant little brother, who just wants to propose to his girlfriend. A little song number might probably be nice.

If you want to give your girlfriend or date a scare, this might just be the movie you are looking for. Chernobyl Diaries is exclusively shown at SM Cinemas.

The film stars Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski, Olivia Dudley, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Dimitri Diatchenko, Devin Kelley and Nathan Phillips. Directed by Bradley Parker.

Thanks to Ferds and SM Cinema for the advance screening invite.

  1. I remember my sister doing a report about the incident in Chernobyl back in her HS days. I saw the trailer and I wasn't very impressed though. I dunno... Maybe I'll just wait for it on DVD, perhaps?
