I'm down for it as long as they don't use too much of the "found footage" angle.

I've always found the abandoned Chernobyl area to be fascinating and I have heard stories that it is haunted. Syfy's Destination Truth had an episode where they went to Chernobyl and they seemed to run into a lot of creepy stuff.

Now I'm off to play Call of Duty 4...

Oh fuck, not this shit again. Chernobyl deserves better than Peli.

I'm happy it's not a found footage type. I got a "The Descent" vibe while watching the trailer

Title got me interested. Plot description kept me interested enough. Writer has me wanting to never see it.

The location of Chernobyl seems like a very cool idea to have a story set there. Trailer did nothing for me.

I'm in because like everyone else I think the setting is cool. And if it sucks, hey, it's not like someone else can't make a movie set in Chernobyl.

A STALKER movie would be pretty cool.

Check out the Vice Guide to Travel on Netflix...they have a Chernobyl segment. Unfortunately it's only like 10 minutes long and spoiler alert, they don't encounter any mutants like they wanted.

STALKER is a PC game set at Chernobyl after a second explosion. Great game.

Looks pretty freaky, but not something I'll see in the theater.

Anyone seeing this this weekend? No reviews on RT yet...that must mean they aren't screening for critics. Never a good sign.

Still not a single review posted. Usually at least a site like Bloody Disgusting has a review up by now. Definitely not a great sign.
