If there is one area in the world where paranormal activity should be prevalent it should be in the ghost town where the Chernobyl Factory used to lie. Since the years of the explosion many people have claimed to witness various forms of phantom figures, disembodied children voices, and ghostly figures that seem to be going to work. It is no wonder why the producers picked this location as the perfect back drop for there horror movie. In case you are wondering the movie is based upon a fictionalized account.
For anyone that doesn’t remember the tragedy that struck, here is a brief history. On April 26, 1986 the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine had an explosion which released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, that soon spread over much of Western USSR and Europe. Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus have been burdened with the continuing and substantial decontamination and health care costs of the Chernobyl accident. A report of the International Atomic Energy Agency, examines the environmental consequences of the accident. Estimates of the number of deaths that will eventually result from the accident vary enormously; these disparities reflect both the lack of solid scientific data and the different methodologies used to quantify mortality – whether the discussion is confined to specific geographical areas or extends worldwide, and whether the deaths are immediate, short term, or long term. Thirty one deaths are directly attributed to the accident, all among the reactor staff and emergency workers.
