Horror: Six young vacationers must contend with unexpected developments and dire dangers when they hire an extreme tour guide to take them to the long-deserted city that once housed workers from the Chernobyl nuclear reactor.
Paul (JONATHAN SADOWSKI) and Chris (JESSE MCCARTNEY) are brothers traveling through Europe on vacation with Chris' steady girlfriend, Natalie (OLIVIA TAYLOR DUDLEY), and her best friend, Amanda (DEVIN KELLEY). They're having a great time, but Paul calls an audible by suggesting they go on an extreme tour of Prypiat, the long-abandoned city that once served as home for the workers at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor plant before its deadly accident in the 1980s.

Chris is reluctant, but when the young women side with Paul, he goes along and they meet their tour guide, Uri (DIMITRI DIATCHENKO), as well as another young couple, Michael (NATHAN PHILLIPS) and Zoe (INGRID BOLSO BERDAL), who join them. Soon, Uri is driving the six young vacationers into the ghost city for a quick look around before exposure to the still lingering radiation becomes an issue. Their bigger concern, however, is when Uri's van won't start and he can't contact anyone on his radio.

When they hear noises at night and he goes to check on them, the group's impromptu vacation detour turns into a matter of life and death for all as they must contend with unexpected dangers in both the dark of night and buildings that no longer have any electricity.

If they're into horror films featuring young protagonists and/or are fans of anyone in the cast, they might have some interest.
For violence, some bloody images and pervasive language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
