List Rules Vote up the coolest pictures of film sets that the crew left behind.

Sometimes, Hollywood doesn’t clean up after itself. For fascinating proof, look no further than these creepy and cool photos of old movie sets. It’s more common than you might think for a production to wrap on a location - and simply leave behind an entire set.

If you happen to be a film nerd, some of these abandoned movie sets would make for a great vacation. Star Wars fans who visit Tunisia or Morocco can find several set pieces still standing that transport them straight to Luke’s home planet of Tatooine. People looking for a chilling example of art imitating life can visit Krakow, Poland to see Steven Spielberg’s replica of the Paszów Labor Camp, as featured in the Academy Award-winning drama Schindler’s List.

If you’re not up for leaving the comfort of your own couch, these pictures of past filming locations will take you right back into your favorite movies.
