If you’re a fan of Oren Peli like I am then you’re probably at least a little bit excited for “Chernobyl Diaries”. I’m excited because Peli is shying away from the POV/found footage camera made a name for him in “Paranormal Activity” and “The River”.

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…
