The idea of a survival horror in the worlds biggest ghost town really got my attention. Look Prypiat up on Wikipedia it looks like a great setting.

What we get is a bunch of not very likeable American Tourists that visit a couple of abandoned apartment buildings and then when it goes wrong, they blame each other and then run around a bit.

The ending was just stupid. Such a let down, I would not watch this film again. 2 Stars is all I can give this film.

Ever since the naive American backpackers in Eli Roth's Hostel stumbled into Slovakia, it's been open season on tourists who go off the map. So why not a horror movie set during an illegal visit to Pripyat, the ghost city left behind when the Chernobyl nuclear reactor melted down and the entire population was evacuated? All you need is for a group of six young, disposable travellers and their ex-military extreme tourism guide "Uri" to get stranded there after dark, and for feral dogs and mutant humans to emerge from the shadows. First time director Bradley Parker makes decent use of the inherently eerie setting (locations in Belgrade and Budapest stand in for the real thing), but his disappointingly patchy, cod style documentary approach is hampered by a sketchy script from writer producer Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and brothers Carey and Shane Van Dyke. So once the annoying, two dimensional characters start getting bumped off one by one, it's just a relief that the actors have stopped improvising their own banal dialogue. The tension and atmosphere builds up well for the first half and the totaly deserted town of Pripyat is very spooky and gives a good impression how huge the disaster was, but is let down in the last half by running around empty rooms with a torch fireing a gun at shadows. There is a great shock with the most random use of a bear ever in a movie that what follows cannot match. It's an undemanding chiller that although the ending is a complete cop-out the novelty of the location, some creepy moments and a short running time just about save it.

Considering that CD has a 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I was not expecting much. However I was pleasantly surprised to a degree. It was fairly griping, atmospheric and actually scary in places! It also used lighting effects very well. I know this apples to most horror films but CD has to be watched in the dark to fully appreciate it's strengths.

One of the other reasons it worked is that it followed it Jaws formula. Jaws builds suspense because you don't see the shark until half way through the film. This works in the same way as you don't see the "creatures" until the latter third. Pripyat looks fantastic and is a much more interesting setting that a haunted house. It had the same atmospheric chill that the level in call of duty 4 did.

It is a shame there is a serious lack of character development and a general poor standard of acting. There is no point giving them names as you just know then as "the brown hared girl" and Jesse Mccartney looks too much like Leonardo Dicaprio for his own good and it is the usual case of which actor gets it next. One issue I will mention is the sudden time changes. It skips from day to night without the impression they did as much as they could before sundown. Another complaint is that the ending was really disappointing and unoriginal. I can't believe they watched the last 5 minutes back and where satisfied.

Despite all the criticisms I have made this is still a reasonable nights entertainment. It just had the potential to be much better. Perhaps if it had been directed by a more experience director It would have been.

Format: DVD
The film opens up with all the excitement of watching your neighbor's vacation films...which is what we are doing. Two couples are touring Eurasia. Chris (Jesse McCartney) the sensible one, and Paul (Jonathan Sadowski) the wild man are brothers. There are two lovely young ladies with them, Amanda (Devin Kelley) and Natalie (Olivia Dudley). Paul hooks up with the proverbial Russian named Uri (Dimitri Diatchenko) who offers him a backdoor tour of the abandoned city of Chernobyl (Pripyat). Another couple joins them because seven people make for a better horror film than five...except in this case.

While I was waiting for a scene out of "Hostel" or something interesting to happen, it didn't happen. Instead the van breaks down (it would be a quick movie if it didn't) and our group of tourists are stuck in a restricted area with no communication. The movie has that jittery hand held camera action to it, which I have grown to hate. To make the thrills cheaper, they turn out the lights and have everyone scream in terror. Oh, Chris has a boo-boo on his leg.

Eventually the film budget allows them to use lighting and then they run the credits.

F-bombs, no sex, no nudity.

***Possible Plot Spoiler**** This film is similar to "Quarantine" in that you have to wait until the very end to get a glimpse of what is causing the terror. And by end, I mean followed by a credit roll.
