2011 marked the 25th anniversary of the dreadful disaster. Back in 1986 during a routine safety test, something with reactor #4 went terribly wrong. This lead to an explosion and inevitably the worst nuclear disaster to date.
The upcoming movie tells the tale of 6 tourists who find one crazy tour guide to visit the abandoned city of Pripyat, which is the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The horrified tale includes some type of part human – radiated monster who probably kills them off, leaving 1-2 survivors. The poster says that when tourism was opened it was said to be safe, and states that they were wrong.
The unfortunate truth is that the people who live there still suffer from disease and possibly mental disorders. It is a very sad situation that effects children born generations after the actual event. Watching this video, as it only has had slightly over 1,000 views deserves the PR and media attention that the upcoming feature film has already had, and will continue to receive.
The release date is May 25 2012. The documentaries were aired in 2011, obviously while filming was taking place. It is curious why these documentaries were not aired in New York, possibly the entire US. Normally this would be proper protocol to begin sparking interest leading to more ticket sales. Is it due to the fact that is may sway our “watching enjoyment”?
I am also interested to know why we are not hearing about Fukushima as they again the Australian “chapter” of 60-minutes seems to be covering the subject quite well. Oddly enough the Fukushima #4 (same number as Chernobyl) reactor presently requires urgent intervention. The United Nations has been made aware of the emergency status and was asked to give aid in the halt of the release of the catastrophic radiation.
A letter written by 72 Japanese NGO organizations lead by Shit Tomani and Green Action warned of the damaged #4 reactor containing Cesium-137, which is the equivalent to 10 times the amount released at Chernobyl. It concluded to also warn of the impending doom an earthquake would have in the present state.

Fukushima is affecting everyone
Coming to Soon America... The Chernobyl Diaries. A unfortunate addition from our money-driven media. This will make tons of money at the box office, and create a stir of attention. The fact that this is story is based on a true place/event it will increase the intrigue for sales. All the while leading the basic demographic away from the truth and the reality of the situation.
