For our 46th episode of Choice Cuts, we called upon Oren Peli to chat about his latest endeavor, Chernobyl Diaries, a film directed by Brad Parker and is based on a story by Peli himself. Of course, you know the man from his feature directorial debut, Paranormal Activity, which spawned a very successful franchise. Since then, he’s gone on to share producing credit on Insidious, The River and Rob Zombie’s forthcoming The Lords of Salem.
Chernobyl Diaries is set in the city of Prypiat that once housed the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. The horror thriller follows a group of friends who, while vacationing in Europe, find themselves stranded in the abandoned city only to discover that they are not alone.
