Shocked that this movie entertained & yes, actually scared me a couple of times. Good horror movie.

Really enjoy this movie. I've seen it a few times, and each time it's just as good. For this one what makes it so good for me are the characters. Each character is extremely likable, and you're sad when something bad happens to them. Could have used a bit more on screen action, as most of the "good" stuff takes place off screen.

I really liked this movie. I feel guilty for saying that.

This was quite a suspenseful thriller. I watched it several times. Nice group of friends vacation on an extreme tour to an empty town located near the fallout of Chernobyl. They are closer than they think, and as they become more contaminated with radioactive dust and other radiation exposure, they are drawn into an underworld of different entities--something in between as you would think would protect an Aztec temple and a radioactive friendly fido. Many surprises. The river scenes seem a bit contrived, but overall this was an excellent thriller.

well... someone had three really good ideas for plots, unfortunatly they combined them all in this movie. It just doesn't work.

I honestly really liked this movie. I was on edge the whole time while I was watching it. They had a really good story plot and they really got you to think "well what would I do if I was in this situation" sort of thing. After the movie was done I was a little confused though they didn't really explain why the doctors did what they did.

It would be irresponsible to rate this movie more than half a star. Hope our libraries got paid to put this DVD in their catalogues ... but why waste their patrons time checking out and watching this "junk"? See what Boston Globe critic said: "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.

A not too bad horror movie. I really liked the setup and the initial scenes at Chernobyl before the main action started. Since the budget isn't high, once the action starts they on purpose don't show much of the creatures/mutants. I didn't even hate any of the characters really, although they weren't developed enough to care about as they are killed off. Ending was OK too. Dark. If you like B horror movies, you'll find this one enjoyable.
