Chernobyl Diaries gets creepy trailer…

May 22nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

This one looks creepy. From the lovely writer behind Paranormal Activity, Chernobyl Diaries tells the creepy story of a bunch of teens who decide to visit Pripyat, the place where the Chernobyl workers lived. But when they get there, in typical horror movie fashion, things go wrong. We love a good creepy thriller. Let’s hope it’s more Blair Witch than Apollo 18.


Press Release:

UK Release Date: 22nd June 2012
Director: Bradley Parker
Producer: Oren Peli
Cast: Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski, Devin Kelley, Olivia Dudley

Chernobyl Diaries is a chilling original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, “Paranormal Activity”.The film follows a group of six young vacationers who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an “extreme” tour guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago.After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
