CHERNOBYL DIARIES is an original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, "Paranormal Activity."

The film follows a group of six young vacationers who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an "extreme" tour guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago.

After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone...

Brad Parker makes his feature film directorial debut with CHERNOBYL DIARIES. The screenplay was written by Oren Peli and Carey Van Dyke & Shane Van Dyke, based on a story by Peli. Peli also produces, with Brian Witten. Richard Sharkey, Rob Cowan, Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Allison Silver, Milan Popelka and Alison Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film's cast includes Devin Kelley, Jonathan Sadowski, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Jesse McCartney, Nathan Phillips and Dimitri Diatchenko.

Parker's behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Morten Soborg, production designer Aleksandar Denic, editor Stan Salfas, visual effects supervisor Mark Forker and costume designer Momirka Bailovic. The music is by Diego Stocco.
