12 Real Paranormal Activities Scary Enough For A Horror Film

12. The Death of Elisa Lam

Elisa Lam was a Chinese Canadian student who was last seen on the 31st of January, 2013, in the Cecil Hotel. On the day of her disappearance she was caught on a security camera, exiting and re-entering an elevator, gesturing to someone — or something — down the hall. Fourteen days later, interest in her case spiked when police released the eerie footage. This prompted thousands of theories from the public, many of which were related to possession. On the morning of February 19th, an employee checked the hotel’s water tank after receiving complaints from residents about the oddly colored, foul smelling water, and discovered her naked, decomposing body. An autopsy report and forensic examination found no evidence of foul play, nor did it provide any light on how she managed to get onto the roof — which was only accessible by hotel staff — or inside the water tank. Since Lam’s death, a horror script inspired by the investigation entitled The Bringing, has entered pre-production with Sony Pictures.
