It was only a few days ago that I posted the link to that Reignbot video about the Elisa Lam documentary kickstarter page. << click to read
Although there's very little chance that a documentary or movie could shine any more light on the series of events that lead to Elisa's death (unless they talked to someone who hadn't previously come forward) at least it didn't seem like it was going to be a straight up horror film about possession or ghosts and whatnot.
Well I just learned of another film being based on the Lam case called "The elevator game".
It's about a girl whose sister goes missing and last images of her were captured on the CCTV from a sketchy hotel. The missing girl goes in the hotel elevator and vanishes.
It's nothing about the Lam case really, more about the paranormal theories that were flying around online.
As you probably know the elevator game is a game from South Korea (Japan too, so I read) that involves getting into an elevator and pushing the buttons in a particular order. If you successfully complete the steps in the correct order when you exit the lift you'll find yourself alone in another dimension or world. If you've ever listened to any scary story channels (suggestions here) you will probably have heard of stories of people using elevators in old buildings and accessing floors that were supposed to be non-existent or under construction, only to realize they have entered a strange place and are usually chased back into the elevator by a screeching, tall black shadow woman.
If you remember a few years back when the Elisa Lam case got a lot of attention due to the "creepy" last recorded video of the girl in the lift of the Cecil hotel (now "Stay on main") you'll remember the internet relating her death to the game. Which was dumb, but you know how people like to scare themselves for kicks.
(By the way, if you want to read my post on the death of Elisa Lam, which contains every piece of information I could find online, including people who have visited previously and dispelling the idea that it was impossible to climb into the water tank etc. then click HERE<<)
So anyways the film is being directed and written by Nicole Jones-Dion and produced by Sean S.Cunningham (Crystal Lake Entertainment). Not sure when its coming out, but its in the works-I just thought I'd let you all know, as I always add to my Elisa post for the sake of completeness.
Oh, also,if you don't know how to play the game, I'll tell you quickly here:
How to play the elevator game:
First you find a building with an elevator that has at 10 floors or more.
Get in alone, and ride it to each floor in this sequence:
1, 4, 2, 6, 2, 10, 5, 1.
Instead of going to 1, you'll automatically begin going up to floor 10. This is how you know it's worked.
During the sequence, you must ignore anyone who gets into the lift with you. This is especially import to note while on the 5th floor, as there is an otherworldly being in the guise of a girl who will try her best to eternally lure you from the reality you know.
To get back you repeat the process and will be taken back to reality on the first floor. Be sure to check you really are in the real world before you settle back into your life. If you pass out during the return process and awake in your own bed, you're most likely not home, so you'll have to scrutinize your surroundings to check.
Have fun visiting other dimensions everyone.
