What’s ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ About?
Directed by Emma Tammi from a screenplay she co-wrote with Scott Cawthon and Seth Cuddeback the feature has been in development hell since 2015. Based on the fan-favorite games, the movie will follow Mike, who is looking for a job, and his search leads him straight to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where he is hired as a night security guard. While the restaurant was creepy enough as it had been abandoned for decades things would take a turn when Mike realized he wasn’t alone. Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy – the four animatronics – are here to keep him company. As the lore goes, the restaurant was closed after the children mysteriously disappeared from its premises, setting the stage for the events of the upcoming feature.
Overall, the movie looks like a faithful adaptation of its source material. The spooky vibes, twisted portrayals, and creepy animatronics all add to the franchise we know and love. The movie stars Josh Hutcherson as Mike Schmidt, Elizabeth Lail as Vanessa Monroe, Piper Rubio as Abby Schmidt, Matthew Lillard as Steve Raglan, Kat Conner Sterling as Max, Mary Stuart Masterson as Aunt Jane along with Lucas Grant and Jessica Blackmore.
Five Nights at Freddy’s premieres in theaters and on Peacock, the same day on October 27. Until then, you can check out the new posters below:
