Either in a big empty place or in some sci fi/fantasy movie.

Create a city of the dead. With each tombstone looking like a skyscraper. Try to be New York or just model any tall building anywhere. Great for architecture students !?

Or in the movie version buildings with drawers that hold caskets. And thousands of dead in drawers per building and thousands of building. And ugly music playing and mostly broken street lights and a few cabs and widows. Wisp smoke.

Why do I feel better? This bit dark deary nonsense is out of my head.

       I kind of get a very eerie, cool visual of this. +

       Eerie.. in a deep dark water column, subtly moving, out in the ocean.

       Like the Necropolis in Cairo? Linky.   

       Been there, or at least the skint Christian bit with the Mari Girgis church.

       I like this but not the wisp smoke stuff. I like a city of Taj Mahals - glorious edifices, each striving to outdo the other. Maybe a little bit rough around the edges in a faded glory kind of way. Sandstone and brass. Maxfield Parrish lighting.

       It should look like Gotham City from the 1989 Batman movie.

       take over "live" cities, turning abandoned houses into mausolea.
