Vanishing at Cecil Hotel terrifies Netflix fans as they’re left unable to sleep

Netflix viewers have been left struggling to sleep after watching murder documentary Crime Scene: The Vanishing At The Cecil Hotel, which was released on the streaming site this week.

The four-part documentary is exploring the mysterious deaths that occurred at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles between the 1930s to the 60s.

Whilst it explores a number of shocking incidents, including serial killer Richard Ramirez's rampage which he lived in the hotel for several weeks, it focuses on one person in particular.

College student Elisa Lam, 21, vanished in 2013 while she was staying at the hotel, and her body was eventually found in the water tank on the roof.

A shocking CCTV clip of Elisa using the elevator in the hotel went viral online, where the student was seen behaving erratically.

In the video, she could be seen talking to herself, waving her hands wildly, entering and exiting the elevator several times and hiding in the corner.

People speculated whether she was being followed by someone or if there had been paranormal activity in the hotel, or if she had been hallucinating.

Elisa's body was eventually discovered in one of the hotel's water tank a month after she vanished, after residents of the hotel complaining the water tasted off.

As they settled down to watch the chilling documentary, viewers took to social media to admit they were struggling to sleep.

One posted: "I was up late last night and decided to watch the first episode of cecil hotel lol and the way i refused to sleep after that bc I was so hyperaware of the sounds around me at 3 in the morning."

Another added: "How am I gonna sleep tonight after watching #CecilHotel!?"

A third said: "As if lockdown sleep isn't enough, I now have #CecilHotel going around my head. Guess who's not sleeping tonight!"

A fourth chipped in: "This #CecilHotel doc on Netflix is 100% going to make me not sleep tonight. What is with the lift?"

Elisa's death has never been solved, and there have been plenty of conspiracy theories about how she may have lost her life.

The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel is on Netflix now.
