ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A so-called “urban explorer” recently took a tour through an abandoned shopping mall, and his eery evidence has since gone viral.

According to KTVI, the cameraman crept through Jamestown Mall. Located in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant, the mall was shut down in July of last year.

YouTube user “BackyardExploration” uploaded the resulting video back in December, and it is now going viral, with more than 200,000 views as of Sunday afternoon.

The video’s description warns viewers not to trespass on the property, but claims the videographer decided to pursue filming it “upon popular request.”

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported back in July that the suburban mall closed and that ownership of the mall was divided among five different parties. At that time, officials were trying to determine how to develop the land.

Take a look at the explorer walks through the mall’s old movie theatre, store back-rooms and hallways — seeing everything from broken glass to leaking ceilings and moldy walls.
