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

Good prequel to an Alan Wake game

Well, I watched it at night! And it worked! Just got myself an Alan Wake game and stumbled upon these series by chance.

It's great opportunity to be engaged by the dark movie's atmosphere and be introduced to some in-game persons.

It's kinda scary watch it an night, not because of some special effects, but because of obscurity and dark fears nesting deep down inside the soul of each other human being.

Directing is good: it says not much, just enough for your ming to start working. Guessing.

Worth watching!
