Critic Reviews of "Chernobyl Diaries"Time OutJune 19, 2012
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.Time OutMay 29, 2012
Director Bradley Parker shakes his camera around a lot.Boston GlobeMay 28, 2012
The real stars of the movie are the tired devices and plot points. They're famous, but they're as old as Betty White: The Guide Is Dead, The Van Won't Start, Her Shirt Has a Plunging Neckline, Don't Go in There.New York TimesMay 25, 2012
Standard-issue genre accessories (dank stairways, flashlights, overcast skies, frosty windows) abound; shocks are mild and few.SlateMay 25, 2012
You might actively root for their collective demise, if you could rouse yourself to care one way or the other. Go gallivanting in Chernobyl and you get what you pay for, nimrods.TheWrapMay 25, 2012
First-time director Bradley Parker (working from a script co-written by Paranormal Activity creator Oren Peli) understands that suggesting is scarier than showing, and confusion generates more suspense than explanations do.TheHorrorShowAugust 26, 2015
For all its familiar ideas, characters, and scares, Chernobyl Diaries earns points on restraint, mood, and location.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
A cool concept is compromised when this film descends into predictable territory.Georgia StraightFebruary 15, 2013
After one effective scene involving a radiated Russian bear, the quality of first-time director Bradley Parker's narrative starts melting down like a TEPCO facility.Cinema CrazedJanuary 09, 2013
There's nothing but many empty scares and zero resolution...Aisle SeatOctober 21, 2012
Its strengths make it worth paying attention to, while its weaknesses prevent it from becoming the first-class chiller it had the potential to be.SciFiNowOctober 08, 2012
Unsatisfactory both as a low-budget schlocker and as a piece of entertainment.
