Would You Survive In a Real Haunted Hotel?



The Night (Vertigo Releasing)

Ask yourself the question would you survive a night in a real life haunted hotel?

Well that’s exactly what the makers of latest horror thriller The Night did, the film was shot on location in downtown Los Angeles, at the real-life Hotel Normandie – that is believed to have had ghostly residents over the years! For those inclined to be sceptical about such things, here are some accounts from YouTubers, travel writers and the like, who have booked into the Normandie for the night… and lived to tell the tale…

Popular YouTube ghost hunters Corey Scherer and Aaron Doh paid a visit to the Normandie and picked up some very strange vibes indeed. “Apparently, all of the rooms are haunted,” says a nervous-looking Corey before they go in for the night. “People have seen figures walking around, they’ve heard footsteps, doors slamming – so we decided to get a room!” Things get immediately creepy when the boys can’t get into their room – and when they do, there’s a welcome note on the bed for someone else. Then the doorknob starts squeaking. At 3am it’s time to get out the K2 (ghost hunting gadget) and dousing rods. Aaron says “I got chills!” You’ll get chills too…

YouTubers The Royal Dorks went to Koreatown in Los Angeles, for a bit of sightseeing and… to visit the allegedly haunted Hotel Normandie. By all accounts the floors and stairs creaked ominously – mainly because they are made of wood and the hotel was built in the 1920s.

In this clip posted by The Haunted Travel Channel this month, the participants attempt to communicate with spirits in one of the Normandie hotel rooms (Number 321) by holding a seance… it’s suitably eerie, like a real life version of Host. Watch if you dare!

If all this talk of the ghostly hotel has piqued your interest, be sure to keep an eye out for the THE NIGHT, that was filmed there, is available now on digital platforms (iTunes/Apple TV, Amazon, Sky, Virgin, Google/YouTube, BT, Playstation, Microsoft, Chili, IFI@Home) on 2nd April.
