- Urban explorers into the darkness /
- "'Urban Explorers: Into the Darkness' plunges into the world of urban exploration, a growing international subculture of adventure-seekers who explore and photograph places where most people would never dream of going. Documentary filmmaker Melody Gilbert ... follows Max Action, Shane, Katwoman, Mr. X, BHV-Fred, Slim Jim and Turbozutek as they infiltrate abandoned government sites, faded tourist attractions, aging lunatic asylums, sewers, drains, and even the forbidden Catacombs in Paris. Some do it for the thrill of being where they're not supposed to be and not knowing what lies ahead. Others do it to document history before these long-forgotten places are demolished. The bond they share is to explore an urban landscape that is largely unknown and almost completely unappreciated."--Container.
