Alan Wake

124 minutes

“Stephen King once wrote that nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations. They’re antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story, the victim keeps asking why, but there can be no explanation, and there shouldn't be one. The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest, and it’s what we’ll remember in the end. My name is Alan Wake. I’m a writer. I've always had a vivid imagination, but this dream unsettled me. It was wild, and dark, and weird, even by my standards"

Dan is joined by friend of the show, Morgan, to talk about Alan Wake. Join us on our trip to Bright Falls.
