  • I feel like they could have handled this like Annihilation, but replacing the Shimmer with the Elephant's Foot, and have a bunch of mutants walking around that way. (The Elephant's Foot is a chunk of raw Cesium that was ejected from the core in Chernobyl, and it landed in an apartment where it remains to this day. If you stand around it for under a minute, you'll be fine. Stand around it for 3 minutes, and you are going to die, with or without medical treatment)

  • There were some people who refused to evacuate, so I’d assume that the mutants are the results of generations of people living close to the reactor

  • Couple early logical problems with the movie: 1: "why is there a military presence this doesnt make sense" tf movie? There is still a military presense around chernobyl irl. Why? Because its still a god damn quarantine zone. Its still dangerous. 2: "mysterious maintenance? That makes no sense!" They are still sending teams in to deal with the remains of the reactor- "The Elephants Foot", aka one of if not a The most dangerous object on the planet. Its a mass of radioactive cobalt concrete and uranium. It sits in the room under where the reactor used to be. Howd it get there? It melted through over 6 feet of concrete. Its so dangerous that if you are in the room with a hazmat suit on for more than 10 seconds youll pass out. 15 minutes and youll suffer permanent radiation damage, effecting your brain, bones, skin and muscle tissue. look up what happened to the girls who painted radium on watches in WW1. Ya. Not pretty. To understand what this can be like, look up what happened to the girls who painted radium on watches in WW1. In which the radium paint that theyd put on their clothes or on their teeth and nails to glow in the dark to look pretty began replacing the calcium in their bones. Ya. Not so pretty after that. When i say they started to fall apart i mean that literally. One of them went to a dentist for a toothache, he prodded her jaw for a second and the whole thing came loose. Not her tooth. Her jaw. Skin muscle and bone just ripped away in a second. Its horrific. And that was just a little paint. Good news though, if you spend just an hour in the room with the Elephants Foot WITH A HAZMAT SUIT you will die within 24 hours. Guaranteed. So your suffering wouldnt be as prolonged at least. When they first discovered it the camera they stuck around the corner to look at it melted in the seconds it took to get a single picture. (It cooled down since but it went from being like the sun to a volcano by comparison) That thing is still so hot its eating its way through the concrete floor. Right above the water table of the city. If that thing hits the water, itll be another chernobyl. Just as big of a radioactive steam cloud if not bigger. So they had to use pumps to get under there and pump out the water. Thats also why they built the "stone sarcophagus"- a giant roof over the old plant basically. So if it goes off itll be somewhat contained from going upward and just blasted off into the surrounding, long abandoned city, containing the blast(at least compared to how it previously went) Hence why your not allowed to go there. So yes. Long story short, there are still maintenance teams in chernobyl. And chernobyl is still a dangerous place to be.

  • If only Yuri became the main character ultimately, I feel like this could have been better. The main characters are so lifeless and boring, I feel like it'd be more fitting for Yuri to be the last alive, dying of radiation because of the hubris of the kids and their lack of common sense with the creatures

    AkulaAkulaIl y a 16 jours
  • I believe that the reason they're using the "patients" is not to create supersoldiers, the mutants are more nocturnal since they aren't seen that much in the time that the sun is up, but rather to just be experimentations on regular people in order to learn the affects of the radiation in Chernobyl, this is to create some kind of a weapon to use in war, however most likely during the most dire of situations

  • On the surface, great movie, in practice, horrible... The could have made it like an urban exploration video, giving the found footage style filming a reason, and instead of fucking radioactive zombies? Mutants? Have it be like shadow demons, kinda like a mix of the Lost mist monster and a shadow, so it has like a 3D body, but a 2d look to it... and give it a backstory in a recently abandoned or destroyed military outpost where they could find some Russian documents on how the mist monsters are like Nagasaki shadows, where intense radiaton burnt them completely, making them some form of ethereal monster... include other things to spice up the story, like a Russian/ Ukrainian guide that had relatives in Pripyat, and how they manage to escape, giving him history of the town... this movie could have been so fucking cool... *shakes head dismissively*
