Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie Review (Spoiler Warning!)

A Childhood Dream Come To Life
Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie Review (Spoiler Warning!)

From its first appearance as a cheap horror game on Steam to its recent presentation on the big screen, Five Nights at Freddy’s has become a fantastic internet sensation. With a total of 10 main games, countless spin-offs, and a library full of books, there’s no doubting how cherished the series is.

After a multitude of media spamming jokes and teasers for the movie, everyone was looking forward to its release. Children and teenagers stormed theaters dressed in their best costumes of the oddly loveable characters to see a long-awaited dream come true. So, was the movie a disappointment or a success?

There has been a swarm of diverse opinions on the film, featuring positive and negative feedback. Many people enjoyed it for what it was and were satisfied with its contents, while others felt it needed to be improved in the lore department and were left disappointed.

As a committed fan of the series myself, I found the movie to be a general representation of the game as a whole and thought that its main purpose was to simply exist. It wasn’t extraordinary by any means, but it checked all the boxes that a FNAF movie required. Plus Josh Hutcherson and Matthew Lillard’s performances were very amusing.

Not to mention, it was so exciting to see the secret cameos from Game Theory’s iconic MatPat as well as fellow YouTuber CoreyxKenshin. It’s a shame the self-proclaimed “King of Five Nights at Freddy’s” Markiplier himself couldn’t make an appearance due to his own film project, but the beloved theme song that played during the end credits seemed to make up for it.

Overall, the movie ranked rather well at the box office and brought in a whopping $252.9 million dollars. It’s good to appreciate the hard work put into the production and that a huge goal was finally accomplished. And of course, a big thank you goes out to creator Scott Cawthon for making so many childhoods memorable and full of screams.
