An extended one-minute TV spot has been released for the upcoming horror film Chernobyl Diaries, written and produced by Paranormal Activity director Oren Peli. The movie looks entertaining, and the thing that I like about it most is its setting. I always thought that this place would be a great setting for a horror movie. I hope the movie is more of a creepy ghost story than a slasher-film blood-fest. Maybe it'll end up being the best of both worlds.
Here's the Synopsis:
The film follows a group of six young tourists 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...
The film hits theaters on May 25th, 2012. Are there any places that you know of that you think would make a great setting for a horror movie?
