The concept of urban exploration (urbex) - the photographing/capturing footage of old
abandoned, decaying houses - is not a fictional idea from the Red Woods screenwriter.
It is a decades-old tradition that experienced a rebirth of sorts with the advent of social media
and specifically YouTube, where today’s top urbexers capture and showcase these aging, intriguing, even scary
structures for their millions of fans to enjoy.
Below are some of the top urban explorers of our generation whose passion and dedication inspired the
character stories in Red Woods. Take a look at their channel(s) and some of the videos - and you’ll
see how brilliantly they capture the beauty and history of the structures they explore. But beware ... like the
characters in the movie, you may get hooked and find yourself wanting more!
Abandoned Urbex Canada
AUC, with its high-quality videos
and dedicated fan base, was a natural
place to draw inspiration from in
deciding to make the characters in
Red Woods big urbex fans or even
Exploring abandoned and
forgotten places in Canada.

Urbex Dane does much of his urban exploring in nearby Ohio - very close to where Red Woods was shot in western Pennsylvania. Not only abandoned houses, but decaying schools, stores - every kind of building!
