The Chernobyl Diaries Trailer


Six American tourists hire extreme tourist and practical joker Uri to drive them to the town of Pripyat; the hometown of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor workers who abandoned the place after the explosion over 25 years ago. After exploring the factory where the disaster took place and taking pictures of various town buildings, they prepare to vacate the area only to find that the car has broken down. Uri's geiger counter starts to display unusual results and the group begin to hear human voices in the distance. They decide to investigate the source of the noise and soon begin to realise that they are being followed by Chernobyl mutants.

Snakes On A Plane Review


Very Good
Snakes on a Plane arrives riding a wave of internet-generated hype and, I gather, a massive confusion of expectations. The pre-release proliferation of art, videos, songs, t-shirts, and other DIY media celebrating the film's unabashed conceptual simplicity (and fortuitous hiring of Sam Jackson in a leading, snake-busting role) indicates excitement, yes, but the nature of their devotion -- what the "fans" actually want from this movie -- remains something of a mystery. Are they hoping for an unintentionally awful cheesefest -- a big-screen, Sam Jackson-starring version of a direct-to-video feature? Or something less low-rent -- a campy but faintly self-aware horror show? Maybe an all-out self-parody in the vein of Con Air? Are the Snakes on a Plane faithful B-movie buffs or studied ironists?

Most likely the fan base features a healthy mix, which means they have a 50-50 shot at either enjoying Snakes on Plane for incorporating traces of all possible techniques, or feeling disappointed when their preferred approach gets the short shrift. Full disclosure: I couldn't describe my interest in watching Jackson fight snakes as anything but sincere.

Wolf Creek Review


Very Good
After first seeing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre I had said to myself, "Only in America..." Only in America could cannibal tailors hide in houses waiting for rations to drive by in cars. Only in America could a film be made with such malice, such terror, and such insight into its audience's carnal fears. In Australia, "Only in America..." is a common lament and a common relief. We say it when we see the crime rates, we sigh it when we watch Celebrities Uncensored. Only in America... It is a comforting thought, not being them. But the new Australian horror film Wolf Creek has changed everything.

Greg McLean's Wolf Creek dramatizes the nightmare of tourists everywhere. Two British backpackers, Liz (Cassandra Magrath) and Kristy (Kestie Morassi) are driving across Australia with Aussie tagalong Ben (Nathan Phillips) for the final weeks of a grand holiday. They decide to make a sightseeing detour to a meteorite crater in the desert at Wolf Creek. After visiting the site the three find that their car mysteriously no longer starts. A driver (John Jarratt) picks them up, and with Wolf Creek being a horror film and all, you can pretty much guess what happens next.
