Abandoned European Homes are Glorious Timecapsules

Author Ransom Riggs, of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children fame, made a movie-type trailer for the novel before its release. His filming took him to Belgium to find a setting akin to Miss Peregrine's Home. Along with urban explorer and photographer Martino Zegwaard, he visited--and entered--abandoned homes and found nearly untouched vignettes of other people's lives. There is a reverential quality to the film the duo made chronicling their discoveries, and justly so. The homes  not only serve as time capsules but as memorials to their former occupants. To see the film, follow this jump, but for a taste of what they found, scroll down for still shots from the film.
