This shit really sells, doesn't it?
More than you'd imagine. Surprised?
Lady, nothing surprises me.
We fucked up the air, the water, we fucked up each other.
Why don't we finish the job by just flushing our brains down the toilet?
Why don't you try reading his stuff?
See if you can get it.
Got any on tape?
You want some, too, buddy?
放松 罗比 这当然是个阴谋
No, relax, Robby. Look, it's a scam, of course it's a scam.
all this strange behavior from people that read the books and...
the agent going nuts and so on...
It's... I figure it's like mass hysteria, you know?
It's like, um
一种流行现象 狂热 不会持续很久
It's a pop phenomenon. It's a craze. It'll pass.
It's this year's Hula-Hoop. Something like that.
Yeah, my God, it's freaky.
No, it's a... it's a setup.
I... I just have to work out how it's set up. That's all.
It's just a matter of time.
God, I've had heartburn, tell me about it.
Sporadic riots continue to eastern cities,
and reports of violence from Boston and Philadelphia are now coming in.
Police continue to describe barely coherent witness, all reporting having read
horror novelist Sutter Cane's latest novel, Hobb's End Horror.
Many office have been physically attacked,
and more than 380 people, male and female,have been jailed in New York county.
Two officers in Boston were hacked to death amid jeering crowds in an attack last night.
What is this horrible unexplainable madness that is gripping lives?
What in the world is happening?
I can see.
He sees you.
Tell him I say hi.
Oh, hi, Robby. Yeah. Yeah, not a lot.
I picked up some of these Sutter Cane books. You know. I've been reading them.
Pulp horror novels. They're all pretty familiar.
They all seem to have the same plot, you know.
Slimy things in the dark, people go mad they turn into monsters, you know.
The funny thing is that ...
they're kind of better written than you'd expect, you know.
They sort of get to you in a way. I don't know if it's his...
Style of writing or his use of description or whatever
No, don't be silly.
Do you want some, too, buddy?
He sees you.
He sees you.
He sees you.
It's just too weird.
Where'd you go?
Assuming you went somewhere.
Now I know why Cane had the artwork done himself.
See this? It's a map.
The red dot is Hobb's End.
It's not on any real map, but look at this.
The two line up.
Like it or not...
Cane's book covers place Hobb's End...
right in the middle of New England.
So you're saying the man went someplace fictional?
No, no, no.
It's a real place in a real state.
New Hampshire, to be precise.
But it's not on the map.
Well, not on any new ones, but maybe on some old ones.
There's plenty of forgotten towns across America.
Makes a great contest, doesn't it?
拼凑地图 寻找小镇 最后得到胜利的便当
Put the pieces together, find the town win a Sutter Cane lunch box.
How can you be sure he's there?
Well, I'd have to go to be sure.
You sure you want me to go?
See, I'm not suggesting that you're lying
that you're about to file a fraudulent claim, but...
forgive me if this sounds a little bit like bullshit to me.
And if you're telling the truth...
if you really want your author back...
if you really want your book then...
maybe it's in both our best interests if I go find him.
We have nothing to hide, Mr. Trent.
I desire only our fair share if Cane is dead...
or our property if he's alive.
Since I assume you also have nothing to hide...
I'm sure you won't mind if I send Miss Styles along on your expedition.
Well, it's your party.
From sea to...
Who is it? What?
Couldn't you just shake me, you asshole?
What did I do? What did I do? What did I do?
We are lost because there is no such place as Hobb's End.
Well, we'll see.
Never, never, never...
throw chips at a driver.
God damn it. Shit.
Styles, can I ask you something?
Do you really like working on Cane's stuff?
Do you really like busting people?
对 我喜欢查那些欺诈 骗术
Yeah. I bust frauds, I bust phonies and yeah, I love it.
Have you ever busted anyone you know?
Yeah, sure I did.
Didn't make any difference, you see.
in my business, you soon find out that...
anybody's capable of anything.
If you can think of it, they've done it.
Doesn't leave you much to believe in.
Yeah. But think of the upside it doesn't leave you much to be disappointed in, either.
Believe me, the sooner we're off the planet, the better.
Now you sound like Cane.
No, not me.
You're the Cane lover.
I just like being scared.
Cane's work scares me.
What's to be scared about? It's not like it's real or anything.
It's not real from your point of view and right now reality shares your point of view.
What scares me about Cane's work...
is what might happen if reality shared his point of view.
Whoa. We're not talking about reality here.
We're talking about fiction. It's different, you know.
A reality is just what we tell each other it is.
Sane and insane could easily switch places...
