Urban Explorer Movie Review, Trailer, Pictures & News

Four foolhardy tourists - American Dennis (Nick Eversman), Venezuelan Lucia (Nathalie Kelley), French Marie (Catherine de Léan) and Korean Ju-na (Brenda Koo) - sign up for an illicit tour of the dank underworld beneath Berlin. On the itinerary are the eerie bunkers lived in by Hitler's chauffeurs. However, off the menu, is a sadistically deranged former Stasi border guard whose torture method of "pulling off a shirt" is graphically employed on one of the hapless grockles.

The Problems with Being an Urban Explorer: A Movie Review

Director: Andy Fetscher.

Writer: Martin Thau.

Cast: Nathalie Kelley, Nick Eversman and Klaus Stiglmeier.

Urban exploration is risky business when four international students hire a local guide to lead them through the ruins of old Berlin. In what they find in the tunnels is more treacherous than this city’s sordid past. In the real hobby, many adventurers can find plenty of rustic decay to archive, figurative history to marvel at and graffitti to indicate where others have dare treaded.

In the movie that takes a simple title of Urbex: Urban Explorer, there might be some confusion in what can be examined. To look around inside any old abandoned building can be exciting. But there is more to this hobby than just going underground. Rank tunnels are often a source for many movies on a tight budget and this tale is one that gets detailed. Nazi bunkers were built within

Win Urban Explorers on Blu-ray

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, out now on DVD and Blu-ray.

To delve further into this underground world of Nazi catacombs visit the official site, take a look at a clip from the film, and read on for details on our latest competition, where you could grab yourself one of two copies of Urban Explorers on Blu-ray.

Described as 'The Descent meets Creep', 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 (2011) Movie Review

“Urban Explorers” offers a horrific twist on the apparently popular new pastime of urban exploration (also referred to by the particularly hip as Urbex or Ue), in which practitioners make their way through abandoned buildings, factories, train tunnels and the like. Directed by the German-Romanian Andy Fetscher, the film unsurprisingly sees a bunch of young thrill seekers getting more than they bargained for during a trek beneath Berlin, resulting in murder and madness a-plenty. The film, out now on region 2 DVD and Blu Ray via Anchor Bay, has gone down well at a variety of genre festivals, having won Best Picture, Best Editing and Best Make-Up, plus Best Actor for Klaus Stiglmeier, at La Screamfest in 2011. The plot kicks off with couple Denis (Nick Eversman, “Hellraiser: Revelations”) and Lucia (Nathalie Kelley), joining Marie (Catherine de Lean) and Juna (Brenda Koo) for a tour of underground Berlin, which will take them

DVD Review: Urban Explorers

Urban Explorers

Stars: Nathalie Kelley, Nick Eversman, Klaus Stiglmeier, Max Riemelt, Catherine de Léan, Brenda Koo | Written by Martin Thau | Directed by Andy Fetscher

A few years ago I read a novel called Creepers by David Morrell. It tells the tale of urban explorers and paints a brilliant world of danger and excitement. It would make a brilliant film should someone acquire the rights and bring it to the screen.

And so Urban Explorers offered that promise. The film’s early talk of hidden nazi bunkers and Hitler’s secret spaceship only serves to tantalise further. So it’s something of a disappointment when the film abandons the exploration and turns into a far more conventional stalk and slash type event after about thirty minutes. Think Wolf Creek underground and you get a pretty firm idea of what’s on offer. Except I liked Wolf Creek.

Fantastic Review: ‘Urban Explorer’ Makes a Creepy Location Feel Very Familiar Indeed

Is there anyplace more romantic than Berlin in the Fall? Probably. But that doesn’t mean love can’t blossom in Germany’s capital city amidst friends and strangers alike. It’s just unfortunate the lovebirds decided to celebrate by sneaking into the subterranean depths beneath Berlin on a guided tour of the tunnels and rooms left over from World War II. Unfortunate for them, but pretty convenient for the madman lurking down below. Denis (Nick Eversman) and Lucia (Nathalie Kelley) are a young couple who decide to tack a spelunking adventure on to their date, and they’re joined by two strangers, Marie (Catherine de Léan) and Juna (Brenda Koo), who soon discover a flirtation of their own. The quartet is led underground by their local guide, Kris (Max Riemelt), who has discovered a lucrative little business with these excursions. They head out and down, and after being impressed early on by the immense scope and

FrightFest 2011 Review: Urban Explorer

Urban Explorer

Stars: Nathalie Kelley, Nick Eversman, Klaus Stiglmeier, Max Riemelt, Catherine de Léan, Brenda Koo | Written by Martin Thau | Directed by Andy Fetscher

I should caveat this review by saying that there was a bit of a screw up with the print shown during FrightFest; there was a total lack of subtitles. This may not sound like a major problem as the majority of the cast are English speaking, but there’s a particularly major character that speaks entirely in German. By the sound of the director’s comments after the screening, much of this character’s motivation and humour would have been missed as a result.

That said, Urban Explorer still wasn’t a film I enjoyed.

A few years ago I read a novel called Creepers by David Morrell. It tells the tale of urban explorers and paints a brilliant world of danger and excitement. It would
