Netflix Shares Trailer For ‘The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel’ | 22 Words

For all its faults, there's one area in which Netflix can be relied upon to excel - the true-crime documentary genre. The streaming service has brought us many classic binge-watching sessions over the years, but fans are expecting the upcoming The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel will be its best yet.

If you're looking for a binge-watch, Netflix reigns supreme.

It was one of the first - and still one of the best - streaming services out there. There are so many hours of content that you can be sure there will always be something to watch.

But there's one particular area that Netflix is well known for.

The streaming service always kills it when it comes to true crime documentaries. For example, The Confession Tapes, a show exploring what causes people to falsely confess to crimes that they didn't commit.

Or how about this classic?

The Staircase first aired in 2004, but Netflix picked up the documentary and added some updated episodes last year. It explores the mystery of the death of Kathleen Peterson and is well worth a watch.

And who could forget?


Making a Murderer may be the documentary series that we can credit with reinvigorating the genre and it kick-started all of our obsessions with anything dark and grisly.

These documentaries all have something in common.

They involve some element of mystery - typically along the lines of who killed who, and why?

But the latest true-crime drop is a little different.

This one might have a hint of the paranormal about it ...

It's extremely spooky.

And a case any true crime lover will already be well versed in.

It features the bizarre case of Elisa Lam.


The famous elevator footage of her still gives us goosebumps!

The movie follows the mysterious death of Elisa Lam.


She was found dead in a water tank on the roof of the hotel - and nobody knows how she got there.

And the trailer certainly doesn't disappoint.

We'll definitely be tuning in!
