Ok movie at a matinee price. Of course the characters deserved to die, instead leaving when they had the chance they have to go back and look for their friends that have been ripped part..

Walking out of the theatre I heard mixed reviews from the audience I was with and while one of them said it was "the worst movie they'd ever seen" I highly doubt that. The setting is scary enough since it still exists and my boyfriend said it reminded him of Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the way the suspense was built which is true! This movie has a nice amount of parts that will make you jump, and parts that will make you hold your breath while you explore Chernobyl's ruins with the characters. It's not going to be super gory or the scariest movie you will ever see, but you should give it chance. My boyfriend and I kept talking about it all the way home.

Spotty Story & Acting, Great Suspense

By VegasGiblet
Written May 26, 2012
While not particularly well-written or thought-out, the idea behind this film is scary enough. Built around the concept of extreme tourism, a group of 20-somethings decides to visit Pripyat, the town directly next to the Cherynobyl nuclear disaster. Once their car dies and their tour guide goes missing, the proverbial s*** hits the fan. Then, the story does become a predictable, yet strangely compelling. There is something truly terrifying about the thought of being stuck in an abandoned city like Pripyat. Especially with the threat of nuclear levels rising without realizing the danger. The best part of the film is that the jumps are in place where they need to be. By the end of the film, my hand hurt from holding my boyfriend's hand so hard. The writers then phone it in more than they already had and took a ridiculous way out. They bank on a quick ending with no resolution. In any case, there were points during the film where I was scared s***less. So go. There.

Chernobyl Hills have Eyes

By Deceitfulpenguin

The movie was simply put..ok. To me it seemed like another Hills Have Eyes, but in Russia. There is also abit of a controversial underline to the storyline, but other than that, it was alright. It starts out slow and very suspensful and the last 20-25 minutes feels as if the director was running out of time and just pasted everything in a rush to fill in that movie gap. To me, this was a rent one.

I was definitely pleasantly surprised with the film. I wish there was a rate in between 'GO' and 'Must GO!' cuz thats where i would put it. If you wanna see a movie that'll make you jump its definitely a must see kinda movie. aside from the scares, the movie wasnt bad and I say its worth seeing.
