A REALLY weird brand-new trailer from Netflix lets fans behind the doors of the infamous Cecil Hotel.
Located in Los Angeles the old hotel has actually been home to some of the most strange criminal offenses, numerous murders and was even the stomping ground of wicked serial killer Richard Ramirez aka The Night Stalker.
The trailer for Criminal activity Scene: The Disappearing at the Cecil Hotel speaks with detectives and hotel staff about the multitude of grisly gunks that happened under the hotel’s roof.
” Is there a space here that possibly someone hasn’t died in,” says the hotel supervisor in the opening scenes of the trailer.
” I never got used to that. Never got used to that.”
The main focus of the new docuseries which premieres on February 10 revolves around the unusual and tragic case of Elisa Lam.
In 2013 university student Lam was staying at the Cecil when she vanished, igniting a media craze and activating an international community of web sleuths eager to fix the case.
Her strange death occurred after she was last seen in one of the hotel’s elevators on the day of her disappearance.
In the video, Lam can be seen acting strangely as she steps into the elevator and starts pushing every button in the panel.
She ultimately steps out and pokes her head out to see who remains in the hallway and does that a few times up until she decides to walk out entirely.
The last of the video shows her standing by the left side of the door waving her hands and making random gestures.
She is not seen talking to anybody and is the just one captured on tape.
The video made the rounds on the internet and collected over tens of thousands of views, as many found her behaviour in equal parts unusual and chilling.
It was the last video of Lam alive who was discovered weeks later in the water tank wearing the exact same clothing and also had all her personal possessions and her space card with her, floating near her lifeless body.
The Cecil Hotel is owned by a guy named Herb Chase and was built in 1924 which since then has been no stranger to suspicious deaths and unsolved criminal offenses.
It has actually been the setting for significant murders such as starlet Elizabeth Short, aka the “Black Dahlia.”

Additionally, at one point in 1985 it was the house to well-known serial killer Richard Ramirez, who was considered as the “Night Stalker” and Austrian serial killer Jack Unterweger, who got the label the “Vienna Strangler.”
It has actually acted as inspiration to film writer and horror-extraordinaire Ryan Murphy, as he based American Scary Story: Hotel on the Cecil and Lam’s story.
The new Netflix series is directed by Joe Berlinger who also made Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
Criminal activity Scene: The Disappearing at the Cecil Hotel will premiere on Netflix on February 10.
