Man who worked in Netflix documentary's 'haunted' Cecil Hotel shares spooky footage

The footage was received some very mixed responses

A man who worked in the 'haunted' Cecil Hotel, which rose to fame through Netflix's chilling documentary, has shared some pretty spooky footage.

The hotel become notorious for being the setting of at least 16 deaths since opening its doors way back in the 1920s, and was all the rage in the Netflix docu-series which first hit our screens - and increased our heart rates - back in 2021.

The true crime doc in question, Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel, follows the strange disappearance and death of Canadian student Elisa Lam as the starting point for an investigation into the Cecil Hotel's dark and mysterious past. Check out the footage of the hotel here:

Now, unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, most of us know all about the oddities attached to the infamous Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles.

But if you've been lucky enough to miss out on all the creepy details, then here's a very brief rundown of what's gone down at arguably one of the world's most haunted buildings.

From a total of six people reportedly killing themselves there in the 1930s alone, to a teenage mother throwing her newborn baby out of the window in 1944.

Any true crime fanatics out there will also know the tragic story about a 22-year-old woman called Elizabeth Short, who had the nickname of the 'Black Dahlia'.

The Elisa Lam case was just one of many mysterious to have taken place at the Cecil Hotel.

She was allegedly seen having a drink at the Cecil Hotel just days before her gruesome - and unresolved - murder in 1947, however many dispute this claim.

The hotel has even housed two prolific serial killers with its most famous former guests including Richard Ramirez - who was known as 'The Night Stalker' and Austrian serial killer Jack Unterweger.

Talk about a bad rep.

Flash-forward to the near-recent modern day and one woman named Angeliquè has taken to TikTok to share some raw footage from inside of the building itself.

The narration in the video explains: "My uncle is currently working at the Cecil Hotel and this is what he sent me."

The spooky video shows a door opening and closing on its own with no one to be seen behind or in front of it.

Understandably, given the context of the allegedly 'haunted' hotel, many were left totally shaken up by the eerie footage.

The footage garnered some mixed reactions online.

One admitted: "Hiding behind the comments so nothing jumps out and scares me.

"And he just stands there?" asked a second. "Is he not scared of ghosts or??"

A third wondered: "Sooo does the ghost want you to come in or not?" while another commented: "Oh hell no. That place needs to be burned down and blessed cuz man that place has too many stories."

Some sceptics, however, clearly weren't so easily convinced by the frightening footage.

"That obviously has a mechanical automatic door closure at the top," claimed one, "all it’s doing is malfunctioning."

Another penned: "So nobody noticed the actuator at the top of the door?"

And a third added: "Automatic room doors, fancy!"

"That's an automatic door lol bye," declared a final TikTok user.

What do you make of it?
