Trailer round-up: ‘Chernobyl Diaries’, ‘Piranha 3DD’, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ & ‘The Three Stooges’
From Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli comes Chernobyl Diaries, an upcoming horror flick that follows a group of young and attractive tourists exploring the eerie abandoned nuclear reactor that experienced an unfortunate meltdown in 1986. Here’s the official 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.
Chernobyl Diaries is directed by visual effects specialist Bradley Parker and Peli serves as co-writer and producer. After Paranormal Activity and ABC’s The River, this looks to be the first Peli project that won’t rely entirely on the “found footage” style. From the visually striking shots to the scares around every corner, this intense trailer sets up an intriguing and shocking tale that horror genre enthusiasts will probably take a liking to. The movie releases May 25.
