wtf was horror about this show? it was a dramatization of a historical event

Imagine watching your friend curiously pick up some shattered, stony fragment from the ground. A moment later, his hand eviscerates from that brief moment of inquiry. Then, as you realize that this corrupt stone almost certainly mangled your friend's hand, you notice more of the cracked monoliths ominously scattered around your own feet. Not only that, but you are compelled to go deeper into the bright maw where these blackened chunks of ore were hurled. In that fluourescent Wormwood, your fate is sealed.

Maybe not fully lovecraft, but the show did a good job portraying radiation itself as a scary, destructive wrongness that is incompatible with life itself. It effected so many poeple in so many different, horrific ways. Being even just near enough to see the reactor being enough to make you melt days later

Chernobyl always struck me as more Lynchian than Lovecraftian. The irony of 12 British guys managing a Ukranian Nuclear reactor has a particular kind of irony where the very macabre and the very mundane combine in such a way as to reveal the former’s perpetual containment within the latter.

Not every utterance in English is a word per se. A proper name is not a word, but English does allow the formation of what I would call "quasi-words" through addition of prefixes and suffixes to proper nouns and extant words.

"Quasi-word" is itself a quasi-word, for example, as I doubt it is in any dictionary has "quasi-word" in it yet any competent speaker of English knows what it means.

Using this, we find things like "Kafkaesque," which is probably in a lot of dictionaries. "Trumpian" has been thrown around a lot lately. "Lovecraftian" is no different. All are legitimate "quasi-words," and calling someone a dumbass for using one merely outs you as the dumbass, because it means you have only a surface-level understanding of English.

These quotes were really compelling. It isn't Lovecraftian but it does really make you think about moments in history where humanity grew careless of the shit we are capable of. It's not Lovecraftian because LC is more like alien cosmic horrid beyond humanity, whereas Chernobyl is directly a human caused horror. It's more like lord of the flies.

One example is the fire crew that were first responders on the scene. They were mostly exposed to ionizing radiation, which damaged their bodies and gave them radiation poisoning that eventually killed them. They were exposed to some amount of radioactive contamination as well, particulate and smoke that they breathed in that later released ionizing radiation into their lungs and GI tract. All of their exposure was short lived, it decayed rapidly, which is why it fucked them up so badly.

Later in the series, when the firefighter's wife visits her husband, they act as if he is contagious, as if she could somehow "catch" the radiation poisoning from him. If he was an actually dangerous source of radioactivity, then his body would have been killing people ever since he was put on the helo to Moscow.

It has to do with the shielding effect of his body tissues and the half life of the radionuclides he imbibed. Most of what he breathed in was short lived radioactivity gone in minutes, transferring damaging energy into his tissues. Anything left inside his body, in his lungs for example, would be long lived activity shielded by the thickness of his bones, organs, muscles, and skin.

The assertion that the fire crew's radioactivity made that woman lose her baby is ridiculous. Claiming that the baby somehow "filtered" the radiation and took it instead of the mother is even more false and impossible. Both the Chernobyl miniseries and the book it is sourced from are not correct in a scientific sense, but they are very moving.

The thermal explosion risk was greatly overexaggerated. There was a risk, but even if things had gone wrong, it'd be impossible for it to happen in a way that results in the 2-4 Megaton explosion that wipes out Kiev.

It'd be bad, but it'd just be more like a big chemical plant explosion, maybe like 1 kiloton at best, and the results from having 3 more reactors wrecked and opened up like reactor 4.

The whole thing with the baby, it's just not how radiation or biology works, it's not absorbing shit and somehow filtering radionuclides out of mom. And that brings up there shouldn't be anyway because once you've gotten rid of all the clothes and washed away all the contamination, that's it. They can't 'spread' radiation like it's a disease or something. Those plastic canvases is there to stop the person from getting sick since their immune system goes to shit.

Overall, just the need to make it bigger and exaggerate things or make it seem more dangerous makes them just sometimes put the scientific accuracy secondary.

Lord of the Flies is mostly christcuck hand-wringing. The boys are complete puppets in the hands of the christcuck author as he forces them to dance to his insipid morality play.

This is a blessed thread. Chernobyl is truly peak Lovecraftian horror. It's not tentacles and Niggerman, it's corruption of the knowledge, unearned wisdom, creating a magical artifact that creates light but also sears you from inside if you just look at it for a second.

It's sort of implied that they're scratching the surface of supernatural horrors, particularly towards the end, but it's only ever implied. At least, that's how I take it.

In the show the radiation and especially the core, is portrayed as an entity. If the eponymous Color out of space is Lovecraftian then the core is a contender, as they both "behave" in similar ways and have similar results.
>>
>>153936123
It's imperfect kino, tragically flawed.

The series would be 10/10 if not for one particular cunt of a character that drags the whole production down at least a full point, or more. And not even a historical or accurate character, in a lot of ways serves as an anachronistic mouthpiece of the writers using hindsight.

It's still worth a watch though for sure. If nothing else, the arc of friendship between the two main-ish characters is worth it.

It does have a horror vibe to it, as you know the history and what happened, you know it will end well. But at the same time you know how dangerous it is, but all the characters are slow to realise or outright deny it, while you know the radiation is killing them.

It wasn't Hiroshima 2.0 bad like they predicted it could have been, but it would have still been disastrous even at conservative estimates because the other reactors in the power plant, would be similarly destroyed like the first by even a minor explosion by the estimates they had.

So not a Ukraine-shattering explosion, but three more blown-open and melting down cores vomiting out nuclear waste into the environment.

Worse, they said it was a steam explosion and would wipe out both Kiev and Minsk, two cities 400 miles apart. It was absurd.
There's other shit too. The scientist lady? Outright didn't exist. Bridge of Death? Urban legend.
I also laughed when the politician (IIRC) demanded the helicopter pilot fly through the cloud or he'd have him shot, it wasn't the 30s anymore and he'd most likely just get laughed at for being dramatic.
Still, pretty good show.

At least within the context of the show, I think by that point things were as bad as they were because everyone so far had been mincing the truth.

So rather than yet again mincing the truth they went dramatically overboard, if only to be realistic about the possibilities of the situation compared to the unreality of all the lies beforehand. Remember that they genuinely did believe there was the possibility of a mega explosion, so in part they were also covering their asses. Because supposing an explosion did happen, the responsibility was theirs by this point so they would be the ones to take the blame/bullet.

I had a similar thought during the scene where the 3 guys are sent down into the reactor basement to drain the water. Maybe not outright lovecraftian, but people sent down into a deep, dark pit of water filled with unknown dangers, forced to wear suits that inhibit the senses, equipped with shoddy flashlights and a meter that continually clicks to tell you how fucked you are? It felt like it was a setup from a horror/suspense film and was shot to emphasize many of these elements.
I actually think Minecraft was inspired by these parts of the show for the Nether update. In the basalt deltas with the flying ash they intermittently play a background SFX that sounds like the clicking of a geiger counter.

One of their logical solutions was literally having helicopters dump small amounts of sand in flyovers, until one of the helicopters just drops out of the sky. Another plan was to run men onto a rooftop for at most like a minute and a half to shovel rock into a hellish pit, sprint back, and dispose of everything they had on them. I think there’s a pretty clear element of oppressive, other-worldly powers at work. I haven’t read Lovecraft but I can at least admit that the show is supernatural horror and suspense

>Imagine watching your friend curiously pick up some shattered, stony fragment from the ground.
"Curiously" is unnecessary and implied from the context. "Shattered" and "Fragment" are redundant together. I'd stick with just the noun. I'd also replace "some" with "a" and "stony" with "stone."
>A moment later, his hand eviscerates from that brief moment of inquiry.
What does his hand eviscerate? You may want to look up this word. Remove the last part of the sentence and just change to "A moment later, his hand is eviscerated."
>Then, as you realize that this corrupt stone almost certainly mangled your friend's hand, you notice more of the cracked monoliths ominously scattered around your own feet.
A lot of cringe here, sorry. Remove "then," remove "that," remove "almost certainly," and realize this first half of the sentence is unnecessary and implied, so remove everything from "then" to "hand." This second half of the sentence is mostly alright. "Monolith" isn't what's initially associated with "Chernobyl," but it paints the Cthulhian metaphor you want. I would just remove "own" from "your own" and leave the rest of the sentence untouched.
>Not only that, but you are compelled to go deeper into the bright maw where these blackened chunks of ore were hurled.
Remove "not only that." If there's more to read, we can figure out it's "not only that." I will say "compel" is a good word choice. "Maw" is a bit strange, but Cthulhian. "Where these blackened chunks of ore were hurled" is awkward phrasing and wrong. The stone was too refined to be called ore. And hurled FROM would be more accurate, (the way you wrote it makes it seem the stone was hurled INTO the "maw") but that makes the sentence even more clunky. If you'll allow a word suggestion, I'd change it to "where these blackened chunks originate." You can change it to something else to better fit your style and intent.
>In that fluourescent Wormwood, your fate is sealed.
I'll leave this sentence alone.
>>
>>153949267
Ran out of characters. Also wanted to say that last sentence is unusual, but fits your style and is brief enough.
With these edits, here's the revised copy:
>Imagine watching your friend pick up a stone fragment. A moment later, his hand is eviscerated. You notice more of the cracked monolith ominously scattered around your feet. You are compelled to go into the bright maw where these blackened chunks originate. In that fluorescent wormwood, your fate is sealed.

Show, don't tell. With so much fluff in your original version, the reader is bogged down with minutia. Remove all of it and your point comes across more directly.
My version is "almost certainly" not perfect and I expect soul vs soulless comparisons, but it's a start. Look up persuasive writing. Read more Lovecraft if that's the style you want to emulate. Good luck, anon.

You, the people you replied to and the ones who replied to you are all retards.
You don't need to invent "quasi-words". "Quasi" is a prefix and is in the dictionary.
"Esque" is a suffix and. Both can be added to almost every noun

Imagine watching your friend curiously pick up some shattered, peculiar negro from the pen. A moment later, his willy eviscerates from that brief moment of lust. Then, as you realize that this broken buck certainly mangled your friend's manhood, you notice more of the nigger faggots ominously scattered around your own feet. Not only that, but you are compelled to go deeper into the wide spread cheeks where these blackened folks of afrika were broken. In that Old barn, your fate is sealed.

You mean his hand was eviscerated. It can't 'eviscerate'. That's not how words work. Also 'inquiry' sounds forced and gay. The less said about the rest the better.

because Lovecraftian horror seems to work best when you relate to the people involved. Lovecrafts stories were all taking place in and around modern times at the time of writing. Reading them now it's stories about long dead boomers who lived lives that are already basically alien to us in 2021

>Later in the series, when the firefighter's wife visits her husband, they act as if he is contagious, as if she could somehow "catch" the radiation poisoning from him.
How many Russian physicians and nurses do you think had knowledge and experience treating acute radiation poisoning in the 1980s?
In the very first episode with the conversation about iodine in the hospital it's made obvious that knowledge of radioactivity and what to do is not widespread in the medical community.
While I'm at it, it's also reiterated when it comes to the doctor pouring milk on burns when the nurse comes to move all of their contaminated uniforms.
What is the point of this post? You know better than Russian doctors in the 1980s about radiation poisoning? Great job!

imagine watching a friend pick up from the ground a fragment of shattered stone. imagine his hand, seconds later, blossoming with boils from just this momentary contact. imagine then noticing, laid out at your feet like the discarded tickets of some lottery with no winners, countless more fragments just like the first one. imagine raising your eyes towards the glowing maw which spat them out, hearing its call. imagine yourself unable to refuse.

Not lovecraftian horror, read lovecraft. There are no hints of madness or the limits of human reasoning, everything in chernobyl is explainable and rational, it is, if anything, the opposite of what 'lovecraftian' is
