Looks pretty decent, although it doesn't seem like it can make up it's mind about whether it's found footage or not, looks like we're getting quite a few decent horror films this year though
Remaining Films of 2014 I'll check out: Dumb and Dumber To. Exodus: Gods and Kings. Big Eyes. Unbroken.

This looks pretty damn cool. I have an unnatural fear of radiation and the like so watching stuff like The Day After or The Hills Have Eyes have that extra element (pun intended) that just sends my adrenaline into overdrive. I may have to see this on the big screen.

I love the setting.

Would love to go there.

Is it still safe?

It's not Found Footage at all.

Have you seen the way it's shot though, it feels awkward when ever it cuts revealing it to be an actual film

Be sure to also watch "The Crazies" (original or Remake... The remake is great!) and "Wrong Turn" 1-2

I saw the trailer, but i'm the complete opposite, it looks as cliche as possible down to the "Oh, my god" line in the trailer. And a bunch of other dumb stuff from every movie seen.

Looks absolutely nothing like PA or the sequels (which have all entertained me more than anything else Hollywood has produced in the horror genre) and besides one shot, it looks nothing like found footage. That's like saying Requiem for a Dream is found footage.

saw it with no expectations as i expected it to be mediocre. To be fair i wouldnt have gone at all if i didnt own a monthly cinema pass.

suprisingly not as bad as i expected, yes its one giant cliche of a horror film, the characters are plain dumb, the end is pathetic, but asid from that the idea is quite good.

id say its worth a one off watch if you can see it for free, i wouldnt recommend buying it as it has no replay value whatsoever. its ok as a brainless timefiller.

So essentially, it's completely awful execution of a half decent idea

Easily one of the worst films I've seen in a while. Went in with pretty low expectations, and it didn't even meet them. The setting was good, but you knew everything that was going to happen. At least in PA, when something "weird" happened at least it happened on camera. With this, it's done so herby-jerky, you see a flash/hint of something creepy for literally 1/2 second, then the camera just jumps around and you get a big scary noise (OOOOOH! I'm shaking). Even my 15 year old daughter (the reason I went) thought it was terrible.

I thoroughly enjoyed it but I'm a huge sucker for the setting of Pripyat/Chernobyl. I loved Call Of Duty 4 for the same reason.

Yeah, pretty disappointing. But should of been expected I guess. I agree on the setting cause it was an interesting idea. But that was about it. At times I wanted to say hold still, hold still, HOLD STILL. ...and toss in some 'what was that?' cause you things just flashed by in the blink of an eye.

Definitely one time where the shaky hand held cam did not help to cover up for a poor movie.
