Chernobyl Diaries Blu-ray Review | Bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Craven's 1977 shocker, "The Hills Have Eyes" (which spawned a marvelous 2006 remake from Alexandre Aja), the creators of "Chernobyl Diaries" have a lot of explaining to do. Of course, pinching a premise from a cult classic is the least of the cinematic offenses found in this stillborn horror creation, as the wretched acting, moronic dialogue, and general void found in the picture causes far more irritation than simple déjà vu. The cure for insomnia, "Chernobyl Diaries" is yet another 2012 chiller with nothing to offer its hungry audience beyond a few cheap scares and a miserable attempt at mystery. Considering the spread of death and disease following the actual 1986 disaster at Chernobyl, the film is borderline tasteless too, turning unimaginable human suffering into a playground for Hollywood stupidity. (Blu-ray, The Chernobyl Diaries) 2.5/5
