Chernobyl Diaries Free movie streaming
Chernobyl Diaries is an 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... -- (C) Warner Bros.

Review For Chernobyl Diaries
|The people Oren ""Paranormal Activity" Peli charged with turning this idea into a scary movie ignore many of the cardinal rules of horror -- how to build suspense, the necessity of empathy in the characters, the need to give us and them hope... |
Roger Moore-McClatchy-Tribune News Service
The real stars of the movie are the tired devices and plot points. They're famous, but they're as old as Betty White: The Guide Is Dead, The Van Won't Start, Her Shirt Has a Plunging Neckline, Don't Go in There.
Wesley Morris-Boston Globe
Standard-issue genre accessories (dank stairways, flashlights, overcast skies, frosty windows) abound; shocks are mild and few.
Andy Webster-New York Times
You might actively root for their collective demise, if you could rouse yourself to care one way or the other. Go gallivanting in Chernobyl and you get what you pay for, nimrods.
The lack of suspense and surprise in this dispiritingly rote film becomes its own form of contamination.
Mark Olsen-Los Angeles Times
This is a standard-issue slasher movie without much slashing, substituting the Chernobyl-workers' ghost town of Pripyat for the likes of Friday the 13th's Camp Crystal Lake.
Ian Buckwalter-The Atlantic
There's nothing but many empty scares and zero resolution...
Felix Vasquez Jr.-Cinema Crazed
While it won't win any prizes for originality, Chernobyl Diaries is still a relatively effective horror experience and certainly not deserving of some of the one-star reviews being afforded its way.
Stephen Carty-Flix Capacitor
Its strengths make it worth paying attention to, while its weaknesses prevent it from becoming the first-class chiller it had the potential to be.
Mike McGranaghan-Aisle Seat
Chernobyl Diaries deserves no prizes for originality (or good taste) but it makes a decent fist of its simple pitch by executing everything it requires extremely efficiently.
Ian Berriman-SFX Magazine
Unsatisfactory both as a low-budget schlocker and as a piece of entertainment.
Possibly the most tedious horror movie since the last "Paranormal Activity." (Blu-ray Combo edition)
John J. Puccio-Movie Metropolis
There's nothing interesting, creative, innovative, exciting, suspenseful, or scary about it. We just sit there and wait for it to be over.
John J. Puccio-Movie Metropolis
Chernobyl Diaries is a mismatched effort that was working with some intriguing core elements -- undermined by worn-out recreations of familiar horror set-ups.
Sitting through this shaky-cam disaster of Chernobyl-like proportions is simply not worth your time, money or equilibrium.
Kristal Cooper-We Got This Covered
Dialogue is banal, the camerawork's predictable, and any subtext's missing in all the action. The flick's irradiated with a general insensitivity to human tragedy. The place, though, is deeply eerie on its own.
Brian Gibson-Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Chernobyl Diaries" is just senseless, idiotic, and pointless. If a horror movie is going to be chock full of people making stupid decisions, it would be nice if they were at least somewhat logical.
There's a great idea hiding in there somewhere - shame they didn't find it.
Mark Kermode-Observer [UK]
You've seen this sort of thing before - just not set in such an unusual locale. 'Chernobyl Diaries' delivers on atmosphere - at least, during the first. That's not surprising considering that Oren Peli of 'Paranormal Activity' fame is a producer.
Linda Cook-Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
For a film with radioactive bears running around, it's often strangely dull, though the final descent into the concrete maw of the reactor itself is memorably hellish.
Tim Robey-Daily Telegraph
A rote run-and-scream wannabe scarefest that fails to deliver more than rudimentary chills.
James White-SFX Magazine
Someone should bury Chernobyl Diaries deep underground in a lead-lined box so it cannot contaminate any more film goers.
Alex Zane-Sun Online
There is a scary and surreal appearance by a bear.
Peter Bradshaw-Guardian [UK]
A second-rate horror from Paranormal Activity writer Oren Peli.
Henry Fitzherbert-Daily Express
Diaries is dark and gruesome, but with little in the way of genuine shock or surprise, you should expect the expected.
Ken McIntyre-Total Film
It's watchable enough, topical and slightly better than your average 'attractive young people in peril' movie.
