To this day, their deaths have been one of the most bizarre unsolved mysteries of the 20th century.Written by

The World May Never Know
Before watching this one should understand this is not so much about the Dyatlov Incident as it is about a group trying to come up with their own answers by experiencing the Mountain of the Dead for themselves. There are references made about the incident but it really is more about what this group is experiencing.
I thought that this was a decent enough film. There are many different theories and considering the horrific nature of the what happened to the original group, films referencing the incident can easily find their place in the horror genre.
The incident has been one of fascination for me and I love that someone finally decided to put their creative spin on the subject. While the film isn't bad I wish it would've taken a different approach. I hope more folks will take a stab at it. If you are interested in the Dyatlov Incident, check it out. It was interesting.
