Chernobyl Diaries Poster Arrives
Oren Peli's radioactive activity

21 May 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If you've played Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare lately, or have a working knowledge of Ukrainian geography, you'll probably be familiar with the derelict city of Pripyat. It used to house the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear plant until the core went into kaboom in 1986, and since then it's been part urban wilderness, part Hammer studios backlot. A fitting setting, then, for Oren Peli's new horror film, Chernobyl Diaries, the poster for which has been launched online.


The Paranormal Activity man has set about making what he hopes will be a suitably terrifying sequel to his found footage phenomena. Note the clear nod to 28 Days Later's blood red quad poster.

The plot here sends a group of young, sensation-seeking holidaymakers into this urban wasteland in the company of the kind of tour guide they don't recommend in The Lonely Planet. There they encounter the kind of nastiness that makes them wish they'd just gone to the V Festival instead. That giant hand doesn't look good, for one thing. Radioactivity, eh? Just ask Spidey and the Fanastic Four about that.



While Pripyat is seriously unlikely to appear on an episode of Location, Location, Location anytime soon, it could make an intriguing horror locale.

Chernobyl Diaries
is out on June 22.
