A crucial display of balance of craft and patience in building layers of suspense under a horrific setting that goes beyond any urban explorer's worst nightmare.

URBAN EXPLORER transcends the genre with the triple threat of incredible locations, a tour-de-force performance by Klaus Stiglmeier and a director who
knows how to keenly build tension. It is one of our favorite horror discoveries
of the year and Klaus Stiglmeier is hands-down one of our favorite performances.
We’ll follow him down any tunnel he goes…

Fetscher shows that he has a great future in cinematography,
managing to pull the viewer into a claustrophobic, Nazi-haunted world.
He also has a wicked sense of humor.

Ultimately satisfying.

URBAN EXPLORER is a horrifying and thrilling adventure that
investigates 25,000 tunnels on 6 levels underneath Berlin with secrets that
were never meant to see the light of day. When four young travelers sign-up for
an underground adventure through a subterranean maze of Nazi secrets, they are
unaware of the horror they’re about to encounter.

They meet their guide at a club in Berlin where they all exchange fake names
just in case the police get involved; this underground exploration isn’t exactly legal.

Through a door in the basement of the club they embark on their adventure, eager
to explore a place few have seen. They soon realize, however, they are not alone in the tunnels. Not only are they in a physically dangerous, decaying location but they are also in the heart of Nazism, the unspoken shame of the city. The government has sealed off the area to keep Neo-Nazis from building shrines.

Subterranean Berlin is still partially in ruins and all of the incredible underground bunkers in the film are authentic. Daredevil director Andy Fetscher was in fact arrested and put in jail for breaking into the forbidden underground and continuing
to shoot without permit or permission.

When the urban explorers become lost, confused, frightened and helpless, an
eccentric old man (Stiglmeier) comes to their rescue. He guides them to safety,
feeds them, and bandages their wounds. All seems well at first, but percolating
just below the surface are rumblings that this stranger may not in fact be their savior. He might be the absolute last person on earth they would like to be with in
an underground bunker.

Will they remember the way back to civilization, and if they do, will they be able to escape?
