Alan Wake: The Movie (sorta)

This Alan Wake music video includes live-action scenes ripped straight from the game

When you're not running through recycled forests, fighting recycled monsters, Alan Wake can be a very cinematic game. The characters and dialoguewould fitright into aStephen King movie, while the episodic structure and surreal imagery are clearly inspired by shows like Twin Peaks.

But if you thought Microsoft's survival horror story was well-suited to live-action before - especially after watching the "Bright Falls" prequels - wait until you see this new music video for "War," one of the Poets of the Fall songs featured on its soundtrack. This is basically a mini-movie adaptation of Alan Wake, with scenes and moments taken directly from the game.


Above: Hey, that's Alan Wake! Played by Ilkka Villi, the same guy who portrayed him (physically, not vocally) in the game


Above: A very familiar manuscript page


Above: Cauldron Lake, and the Dark Presence


Above: Even the lighting effects are the same


Above: Seriously, this is barely distinguishable from the game


Above: This, on the other hand?Randomly blurry and patriotic clown?
Not so much
