Eric Dwinnells is back (on two legs!) to tell you about
the Mystery of Room 214! (spoiler alert: this is also known
as the vanishing hotel room). In Paris, France in
1889, two English women (a mother and a daughter) book a room in a
hotel. The mother becomes quite ill with an unknown sickness. The
hotel doctor is called and what happens next is...well, we don't
want to give too much away.
This urban legend causes us to look for its roots. If it's not a true story then why was it made up and why does it get repeated over and over for generations? Does it contain messages about how to deal with foreigners, how businesses will kill you to save a buck, or what to do about illness?
All this plus Eric rambles on about his leg and the golden State Killer on tonight's Spooky A S!!!
