Warner Bros. Bringing Chernobyl Diaries To Blu-Ray In October


Warner Bros. Bringing Chernobyl Diaries To Blu-Ray In October

Warner Bros. have announced the Oren Peli-produced horror film Chernobyl Diaries for Blu-Ray combo pack this October.

Oren Peli is responsible for the Paranormal Activity films, so naturally most were excited when they heard he had a hand in a film that involves tourists traveling into the radioactive wasteland known as Chernobyl. The problem with that is that the film Chernobyl Diaries is a far cry from anything slightly watchable. There’s an establishing tone that originally comes across as brooding, but eventually shit hits the fan in a hurry.

I absolutely hated the film and our staff reviewer Kristal Cooper felt the same way in her review:

Sitting through this shaky-cam disaster of Chernobyl-like proportions is simply not worth your time, money or equilibrium.

Warner Bros. will be presenting the film on Blu-Ray with a 1080p video transfer and a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will come with the following bonus material:

  • Alternate ending
  • Uri’s Extreme Tours infomercial
  • Chernobyl Conspiracy viral video
  • Deleted scene

The alternate ending intrigues me, but I really can’t see that being the saving grace for such an abomination of a film. It’s really hard to screw up a horror film this badly, yet Oren Peli and director Bradley Parker managed to do it.

Chernobyl Diaries will be available to own on October 16th, 2012.
