Film Recipes for Urban Exploration

I was asked by a film recipe user if I had any recipes for Urbex? I gave this some thought, and realised that many Urban Exploration recipes have certain characteristics, and that some of my recipes shared these too.

So, whilst I’ve only made a couple of recipes specifically with urban exploration in mind, here are my picks for recipes that would work well for exploring cities and urben or industrial areas.
