The terrifying true mystery of the Cecil Hotel to be made into The Bringing

A lot of scary shit happens in the real world everyday, but it’s not too often we see something as mysterious and terrifying as the recent death of Elisa Lam. According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has just acquired the rights to The Bringing, a horror script written by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and based on an actual place and series of events. The story is based on the mysterious death of Elisa Lam, a woman who was found dead in the water tanks on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. And they may have never found her body if it weren’t for the guests of the hotel who—two weeks after Lam’s death—started to complain about the taste and the color of the water. Can you believe that? What a terribly freaky story this is.

But perhaps the most terrifying part of it all is the fact that there is actual footage of Lam’s bizarre, inexplicable behavior in an elevator just before her death. What makes the video so jarring is how she appears to be talking to herself (or something) before acting completely off-the-wall nuts. It really sends you chills knowing what happens to her next, a mystery that we may never solve.

The Bringing is based on this story, which tells of the man investigating her death, and the nightmare he stumbles into. I think Sony is really on to something with this one, folks, as it has the makings of a truly horrifying film. The mystery of the Cecil Hotel doesn’t stop there, however, as it has become a place that not only Richard Ramirez—an American serial killer, rapist, and burglar—called home at one time or another, but has seen many suicides occur. Below is the video of Lam’s bizarre last moments.

  1. Wow, creepy shit man (and I didn’t even watch the vid). The complaints about the taste and colour of the water made my skin crawl. As always, love these posts sir.

  2. is this actually a verified hotel security system video. just wonder how she got the elevator door to stay open continuously for that long…

    1. It’s the actual footage from the elevator of Elisa Lam just before her death. How the doors stayed open like that? I have no idea.

  3. I enjoy watching true horror films but actually seeing her talking to someone or something and then dying after that. Is true horror. I will definitely see this one Ryan. Do the police have any new leads?

    1. You’re right about that, Penny. The last I heard about this one was that they ruled it an accidental death, but how she got in there and why is still a mystery. We’ll probably never know, unfortunately.

  4. The video is missing 54 seconds in it. There’s lots of speculation of the true store which no one knows and probably never will. I been researching this case all day and will continue to research it. It’s so messed up. I want “1408” this hotel. If anyone has ever seen that movie with John cusac and Samuel l Jackson. I’m extremely interested in this phenomena as I’m not a believer of supernatural. This story may have just changed that. Cheers
