What Is “The Backrooms?”

Back on May 12, 2019, a forum post asking for pictures of disquieting locations spawned what has become a crowd-sourced horror story that keeps growing. Known as The Backrooms, it plays the liminal setting to found footage style stories created and shared across platforms like Reddit. 

Lore. Common concepts associated with the theme include a 3 level system with seemingly no escape that a person falls into when they wonder where reality has holes. Those who claim to have been in and freed themselves from the endless hallways and service tunnels claim that "only when the backrooms become your home can you depart."
