An amazing series of abandoned mall images has revealed you can get a full on The Last Of Us zombie apocalypse vibe in less than 12 months. Although if you really want a true 'death in the food court' thing going on you might want to give it about 5-8 years.
The images here are of Ohio's The Rolling Acres Mall which opened in 1975. It only shut in December of last year but as you can see the threat of becoming an anonymous, shoeless corpse seems to materilise almost instantly. Other malls, that have closed for longer, become increasing more terrifying, even in broad daylight. Despite none of them have been shut for much more than a decade.
