Danger lurks in the woods… At least, that’s what the creepy bedtime stories used to say. And as two old friends investigated the mysterious place that they had found in an East German forest, would they come to wish they’d heeded these warnings?

One of the friends used to play in these woods as a kid. He had always been forbidden from venturing too near this bunker structure, with its periscope-like pipes sprouting ominously from the forest floor. But now he was grown up – and with a friend for back-up – who could stop him? So, armed with a flashlight and a camera, they set out to explore.

The pair located the concrete hatch to the bunker by searching the area around the periscope pipes at the surface. And after prising off a wooden lid with a crowbar, they clambered inside. Behind them, the rusty metal gate swung shut – just like in the horror movies.
