  • Notes

    • When TAPS first visited The Stanley Hotel, the team was told a story about a young woman who stayed in room 412 who suddenly began acting strangely, claiming that something was attempting to possess her, and was violent with those who attempted to aid her, despite having no alcohol or drugs in her system. In this episode, Donna adds another interesting detail to the story- the supposed "possession" occurred exactly one year ago on Halloween night of 2005, and the woman had left the Hotel's Halloween party a half an hour before it took place. A parapsychologist would undoubtedly note that the power of suggestion of a supposed haunted location coupled with a party dedicated to celebrating the supernatural would be very strong, and if a person was highly suggestible, they might feel something that they attributed to a paranormal source, and hysteria could cause the violent, irrational behavior the woman exhibited.
