[quote:Anonymous Coward 33628542:MV8yMTUwMTc3XzM2MzM0MDQ1X0U3RUQ3Mjk0] [quote:Anonymous Coward 8406227:MV8yMTUwMTc3XzM2MzMzOTYxXzQwQjBENzM5] I want to know what the hell she was so afraid of in that elevator. [/quote] From a description of Dark Water (US 2005) "Cecilia... isn't fitting in and is spending too much time with an imaginary friend, named Natasha. A psychologist is recommended, but Dahlia declines and tells Cecilia to ignore Natasha. Although Veeck had said it was claimed, Dahlia discovers the Hello Kitty backpack in the laundry room's garbage. Cecilia later finds it in the elevator." "and in the elevator, her mother's ghost braids her hair and comforts her" "...momentarily horrified with a malfunction in the elevator, the weird behavior of his daughter" From a description of Dark Water (Japan 2002) "Intending to escape, she rushes into the elevator, fleeing apparently from the apparition of Mitsuko. But as the elevator door closes she sees that the figure pursuing her is in fact her own daughter..." "Yoshimi sacrifices herself by staying on in the elevator to appease Mitsuko's spirit and pretending to be Mitsuko's mother. The elevator ascends and Ikuko follows, but when the doors open, a flood of murky brown water rushes out and nobody emerges." [/quote]
The Elisa Lam case bears some striking similarities to the Japanese story Floating Water, later made into two Movies (Dark Water). The original Japanese and then an American remake.
In Dark Water the body of a young girl who lived on her own in a run down apartment block, and who went missing, is found in a water tank on the roof.
Residents report the water running black. (as did residents of the Cecil Hotel.)
The story strongly features supernatural activity and death centered around an elevator. (Elisa Lam's bizarre behaviour in the elevator)
In the US remake of the film (2005) the main character is called 'Dahlia'.
The actual Cecil Hotel was apparently a one time 'haunt' of Black Dahlia murder mystery victim Elizabeth Short.
Dahlia's daughter in the film is called Cecilia.
Elisa is a shortened version of Elisabeth... or Elizabeth Short.
Any more that anybody can see?
