Basically dude at the end of the movie you find out there a girls body in a water tank at the top of the apt building they live in. Same as this case.

"Dark Waters" was the first thing I thought of when I saw the news report.

Talk about gross. It's bad enough when year hear about a dead body being found under the bed in a cheap hotel. Know you've got to think about what's in the water or, to be more exact, who's in the water.

Check out the connections with the character names:

Cecilia (Cecil Hotel)
Dahlia (Black Dahlia used to frequent this hotel).

Creepy video, creepy news story.

This has got to be the original hunted hotel.

Elisa Lam's death may have no connection with Dark Water at all, and may not have even been the result of foul play, but just for just food for thought:

Taking the suicide angle, Lam could have seen these films herself, which would account for the coincidental similarities. She liked Ryan Gosling's song Buried in Water, and did a little tragic play acting methinks, perhaps exacerbated by paranoid delusions brought out by be in alone in a strange city.

Taking the murder angle, consider that the original version of Dark Water was from Japan, the victim was an Asian Chinese-Canadian. Could her race have been a factor in the her being selected as the victim (if it was murder)? She wasn't of Japanese ancestry, true, but she may have been close enough for any hypothetical sicko to single her out of all the residents/guests at the Cecil. Several people have made connections between Lam's disappearance, the history of the Cecil Hotel, and the American version of the film Dark Water. If someone was sick enough to conceive and carry out such a murder scheme, why not also make reference to the original Japanese film? Could there be other coincidental connections between the Japanese version of the film and the Lam case?

From what I searched about the case, I can say it's not accident or suicide.
So definitely murder.


There was a discussion about it.

No, you're not the only one. It gave me chills when I heard about the Elisa Lam case. Really creepy coincidence.

It's not a coincidence. It was all calculated.

How about the other creepy coincidences like this movie with the case, the hotel being Elizabeth Short's last stop, etc?

reply

Creepy horror flick but 10 times more chilling when compared to Elisa Lam!I had never heard of this movie until I read about Elisa Lam & then I had to see it!

reply

Do we actually know it was a murder? It could have been a murder, but we don't know it was a murder, do we?

reply

No we don't know. But the elevator video *beep* everything up.

Not sure how you explain the water tank being locked from the outside besides murder.

By the way, I am right behind you.

reply

The water tank was not locked from the outside.

reply

The number of coincedences is truly starteling. The main character's name is Dahlia, The Black Dahlia was last seen at the Cecil Hotel before she was found dead. The little girls name is Cecilia, and the hotel is the Cecil Hotel. Dead girl in the water tank. Black water.

It's just *beep* weird man.

By the way, I am right behind you.

In the Japanese version, the outfit that the mother wears in the scene when she climbs up the cistern for the first time is quite similar (but not identical) to the outfit Elisa Lam was wearing on the presumed night of her death. However, I have to throw a monkey wrench into the theory that Lam met her untimely end while role-playing this movie on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. Lam actually was booked at an hotel adjacent to the Cecil for her first two nights in L.A. She even referred to the Cecil in one of her tumblr posts: "I'm staying next to this monstrosity of a building" (referring to the Cecil). This would seem to suggest she didn't intentionally choose the Cecil Hotel before leaving from Canada, that she didn't know the name of the hotel before arriving, and therefore that she didn't plan it before hand. Also, there is nothing on her social media suggesting she had seen the film or wanted to role play there. The name of the Cecil hotel is presumed to be a reason she would have gone there,as the girl in the American remake is named Cecile. The mother in the American version of the film was named Dahlia. There were unconfirmed rumors that Elizabeth Short (aka the Black Dahlia) had stayed at the Cecil just before her death. Again, though, Lam never referred to the Black Dahlia case that I am aware of. She did mention being a fan of the movie "Drive" and talked about seeking out locations that were used in that film, but no mention of either version of Dark Water or wanting to role play those particular movies. Nor do we have an evidence that she was corresponding with someone who has seen either versions of Dark Water and wanted to role play. There was a death metal musician named Morbid who she did mention in her blog posts who at one point was a suspect in her death. This creepy guy actually did stay at the Cecil in 2012 - the a year before she did - and he DID have a fixation with the Black Dahlia case. However, there is no evidence he ever knew or met Elisa Lam, or that he ever stayed at the Cecil again after 2012.

It's just getting creepier and creepier as I'm watching the movie now.
When the little girl goes to the roof the apartment manager yells at the superintendent, "HOW did she get up there?! Check that lock!"
They are wondering how Elisa even got to the water tanks because the doors to the roof were supposedly locked.
(I believe it was murder by a hotel employee, but who knows...)
