Step inside the elevator, push the buttons, and when the doors open up you’re in a different world. Would you play?
There’s a reason so many horror movies and ghostly legends lean heavily on them to deliver scares. From a recent episode of Evil to Elisa Lam to the little girl who never got out, elevators are part of our haunted imagination. We get in and assume they will just take us where we need to go, but sometimes they don’t. Where does our fear come from?
Join Tripping on Legends as we explore the new popularity of the Elevator Game and other modern spooky legends that look to tap into our fear of the lift.
