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.

Mistakes

The whole basis of the movie is flawed. You could not pick a more inappropriate location for a babes-in-the-wood style zombie film. The Exclusion Zone around the Chernobyl reactor site is not a deserted wasteland as shown in this film - it is one of the most secure and well patrolled areas on earth. It is crawling with police, military and paramilitary patrols and if you did manage to get lost all you'd have to do is walk or drive five minutes in any direction and you'd run into someone who could help. If there really was a population of mutated zombies about the place they would have been located and dealt with years ago. You cannot just drive into Pripyat (the setting of this film). To get there you would have to pass through two checkpoints, and a private vehicle would be refused entry. Further, the Exclusion Zone is (believe it or not) a popular tourist spot and the single road through is an important transit route for heavy goods vehicles driving to and from Kiev. In other words, you are never far from someone who could help, probably by shooting the zombie with his AK47. And as for mobile telephone masts - the place is festooned with them and you can make a call any time of the night and day.
