Netflix’s chilling new true crime documentary Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel has had viewers captivated since it debuted on the steaming site earlier this week.

The four-part series follows one of the US’ most mysterious and talked about disappearances – that of Canadian tourist Elisa Lam.

She seemingly vanished into thin air in 2013 after acting erratically whilst in a lift – the last time she was spotted alive.

After the surveillance clip of her went viral, true crime fans became fixated on what had happened to her and a full blown investigation was conducted into her whereabouts.

The 21 year old’s body was later discovered in a water supply tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel, a place many have described as “hotel death” due to its already established dark history.

And as viewers have begun watching the case unravel during the Netflix series, they’ve been left seriously disturbed by what they’ve seen.

While a third warned others against watching the series in the dark at night, saying it made the experience all the more spooky.

Others agreed, revealing that they were scared to walk around their own house after tuning in, or left unable to sleep.

The show is made by Joe Berlinger – the man who directed Netflix show Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Earlier this month in an interview with The Independent newspaper, he said that he had been immediately captivated by the case from the first moment he saw the footage of Elise acting strangely before she went missing.

Explaining it made him want to bring the project to our screens, Berlinger said: “It’s strange and seemingly inexplicable.

“The enigmatic nature of the video is really what drew many people around the world, including me, to become passionate about the case and want to solve its mysteries,” he continued.
