Storyline

Reporter Jake Fischer arrives in Bright Falls to interview a resident psychiatrist about his new book. After hitting a deer on a forest road and a series of odd encounters with townspeople, he soon finds himself blacking out and losing time, waking up in the middle of a forest and other locations where he wasn't previously. He also develops an aversion to light, finds strange and elaborate notes he has taken and suspects that he was somehow involved with the disappearance of a local motel owner. As his perceptions falter, he witnesses the signs of a mysterious epidemic sweeping the town. The longer he stays in Bright Falls, the more unpredictable his blackouts and behaviors become, leaving him no choice but to attempt an escape. Written by Anonymous

Not as good as the game but this is a fun watch
25 August 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

When I usually watch video game movies whether they're the "adaptations" that continue to give them bad names when really they have better plots then most action movies - just poorly carried out by a producer or something or the fan films which generally are very good

  • even if at times newcomers don't get the plot or characters, it might


seem way too hypocritical to say this about movies made by fans for fans but I judge an adaptation, prequel mini-series or whatever on the merits of an adaptation and as "will newcomers get lost".

In Bright Falls, this is probably the best I have seen do this. I mean while Mass Effect: Red Sand was good at this too, it doesn't have as interesting of a plot as this does.

Speaking of, a reporter named Jake Fischer has gone to Bright Falls to write for an article (I really don't know whether it's newspaper, magazine or online) on Dr Emil Hartman's new book. But when he gets there he hits a deer only for it to vanish and then he begins to have black-outs where he doesn't know where he is when he wakes up half the time and he might have done something terrible while he has been blacked out.

Okay, in terms of what people who enjoyed the game will not like it's pretty trivial but I'll go down a list. First of all, a couple of people in Bright Falls talk at one point or another as if there is something wrong with the town, which even though there is they shouldn't know about it because the evil spirit that's doing everything makes people forget the ones fighting it even existed. There is no Old Gods Of Asgard and even though it might sound as if I wanted to hear Poets Of The Fall sing in this mini series it set up the atmosphere for the town and there's no Taken, which would make Jake question his sanity even more-so then black-outs.

Whereas if you aren't a gamer or don't own an Xbox 360 then this is actually a decent story that may be interpreted as someone's decent into madness (hell, the black-outs could make people easily believe it's split personality disorder) so if this kind of story is one that you like then I suggest checking it out.

In terms of just plain technical elements this is done well on it's own merits, for a web series it actually looks really good. I mean it's the usual standard stuff that you'd expect for the 2 locations of "small country town" and "woods" but it does look great in places.

If you want to watch this either fan of the game or not, then this is for you. If you like the game then this is an interesting little continuation of the story and if you're not then it can easily be looked at as a short movie about a guy slipping into madness. I'd say if you want to watch it I'd say go for it.
