Liz Recommends - The Left Right Game
Originally written on a Reddit thread (https://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/7asz8x/has_anyone_heard_of_the_leftright_game_part_1/), The Left Right Game is Liz’s new obsession. AND it’s about to be made into a TV series (https://www.slashfilm.com/the-left-right-game/) on Amazon.
“Tessa Thompson stars as an idealistic young journalist trying to make a name for herself by following a group of paranormal explorers, obsessed with a seemingly harmless pastime known as the Left/Right Game. The journey takes her into a supernatural world that she and the other members of the expedition can neither handle nor survive.”
Starring and co-produced by Tessa Thompson.
Written and created by Jack Anderson.
Directed by Emma Tammi.
Presented by Sonos, QCode Media.
For both: Make sure you listen with headphones OR in a car if you’re a careful driver, especially for episode two.
