Chernobyl Diaries

One by one, the group of tourists are captured and killed by the people ("mutants") that live in the town of Prypiat and also in Chernobyl, until only Amanda and Paul remain. They become poisoned with radiation while running from their pursuers, then stumble upon a group of soldiers, and they kill Paul when he approaches them. Amanda is taken to a facility where the scientists reveal that the "mutants" are escaped patients. Since no one is looking for her and there can be no witnesses regarding the escapees, Amanda is placed in a room full of patients/mutants and gets devoured.

Factual error: The idea that anyone survived living in Pripyat Hospital is absurd. The uniforms of the doomed firefighters were stored in the basement and are so radioactive that anyone straying downstairs for more than 45 seconds has about a week to live. The ground and upper floors are far less radioactive but prolonged exposure - in other words, living there - would be fatal. Nobody could survive on the grounds for more than two or three months without receiving a lethal dose of radioactivity. Incidentally, prolonged exposure to radioactivity doesn't turn you into a deranged zombie - it turns you into a corpse.
