This is what I really love about searching for the latest movies, trailers and pictures, finding something like this. Andy Fetscher’s Urban Explorer is a German horror with the emphasis on horror that upsets and scares the shit out of the viewer, and in all honesty, isn’t that what horror is all about? Festscher asks the question here that what if real evil is not in some far off place, or in the movies, but is a real presence a bit too close to home for comfort. Urban Explorer shows just that. The movie is about to hit the festival circuits, and I reckon this’ll be a massive hit when it comes to its official release. Me, I cannot wait and will be keeping a very close eye on developments for this gorgeous and terrifying looking horror. Hope you enjoy the trailer, and here is the official synopsis followed by a rather unsettling in your face poster:
Anxious to explore the mysterious hidden world under metropolitan Berlin, an international group of four urban explorers hires a local guide, Kris, who leads them into the maze of escape tunnels and subterranean fortifications under the city.
When their guide has a bad fall, two of the girls in the group frantically set off to seek help while Denis, the young American, stays behind. Armin, a former East German border guard suddenly appears from nowhere. Out of sheer desperation, Denis allows Armin to lead them and their unconscious guide to safety and it is at this moment that Denis realizes he has just made the biggest mistake of his life…
