Real Urban Exploring Pt.4: Closer To Home

Urban Explorers subterranean Berlin location brings to mind exotic and morbid associations with Nazi evil and hidden occult experiments. No wonder the tunnels are magnet for curious kids and, this being a horror movie, no wonder there's something malevolent and twisted down there as well, looking for trouble.

But, closer to home and hopefully free for lurking terrors numerous historic locales and abandoned spaces that old their own secrets. The LOST PLACES website is a brilliant archive of hidden places and off-limits locations that's well worth a look.

No images to share. I get the feeling that many explorers like to keep their images close to their chest and who can blame them? So of the amazing pictures you see online must be hard fought for.


More On The Underground...

Further to our post on the London Underground explorers who currently find themselves in hot water over their exploits investigating ghost stations in the capital.

The DAILY MAIL has picked up the story in a remarkably measured and non-judgmental fashion and it's well worth taking a look at their feature as it has more fascinating images taken by the group in question.

The rapidly growing global phenomenon of urban exploration (also known as Urbex or UE), in which thrill-seeking enthusiasts explore the normally unseen or off-limits areas of towns, cities and industrial facilities, provides the unique background for director Andy Fetscher’s chilling survival-horror shocker, Urban Explorers, coming to DVD and Blu-ray on 5th March 2012.

The winner of the Best Picture, Best Actor (Klaus Stiglmeier), Best Editing and Best Make-Up awards at LA’s prestigious Screamfest Horror Film Festival in 2011, Urban Explorers is a slickly shot, tautly scripted and expertly directed horror treat, full of suspense, nightmarish situations and more than a little gore.

Looking for something different away from the usual well-beaten tourist trails of metropolitan Berlin, four young people – partners Denis (Nick Eversman) and Lucia (Nathalie Kelley), plus recently acquainted Marie (Catherine de Lean) and Juna (Brenda Koo) – hire local guide Kris (Max Riemelt) to take them on a tour with a guaranteed surprise. Kris leads the group into the city’s dark and dank subterranean maze of wartime escape tunnels and underground fortifications on a rare, and illegal, trip to visit the legendary, graffiti-laden and now walled-up Nazi war rooms rarely seen by anyone since the end of World War II.

The trip takes an initial bad turn when the group encounters a pair of confrontational neo-Nazis and their dogs prowling around, but things get much worse when an unfortunate accident leaves Kris immobile and desperately in need of medical attention. Marie and Juna set off to find help, leaving Denis and Lucia to stay behind and look after Kris. The unexpected arrival of a bedraggled looking man, Armin (Klaus Stiglmeier), provides a ray of hope. A former East German border guard and now a self-appointed “guardian” of the tunnels, Armin takes them to his base with the promise of safety and a phone call for help. However, it soon becomes apparent that Denis and Lucia have just made the biggest mistake of their young lives.

Taking the viewer on a fascinating and frightening trip into an unseen underground world, the kind of which that secretly exists beneath most vibrant cities, Urban Explorers unearths the hidden dangers and fears that lurk not only in the shadows of these unexposed landscapes but also in the darkest recesses of the mind.

Urban Explorers (cert. 18) will be released on DVD (£15.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) by Anchor Bay Entertainment on 5th March 2012.
