First Official Five Nights At Freddy’s Trailer

Five Nights At Freddy's

Blumhouse Is Making Fans Wait Just A While Longer

Universal Studios has finally released the trailer for their Five Nights At Freddy’s film. With the first game starting out as an independent project made by Scott Cawthon, the franchise is finally getting its own film adaptation. 

What Can Viewers Expect? 

The trailer opens up with Josh Hutcherson as the protagonist, calling in regard to a job position. Surprisingly, this is not the scary part as viewers are treated to the real stars, Freddy and his animatronic pals. The trailer also seems to confirm the presence of all five original animatronics that appeared in the first game. While there was never any doubt about Freddy’s appearance, other fan-favorites, such as Chica and Foxy, were not confirmed prior to the trailers release. The trailer also reveals a release date set for the spookiest time of the year, October 27. 

Star Players

While Josh Hutcherson (Bridge to Terabithia and The Hunger Games trilogy) stars in the film, there are some other notable faces that should delight fans. One such face is that of Matthew Lillard, who is no rookie to horror, having played the part of fan favorite Stu in cult classic Scream. Lillard also starred in Thirteen Ghosts, another cult classic horror film, so his inclusion will bring a tear to many horror fans. Another familiar face is Elizabeth Lail, who has starred in other horror/thrillers such as Countdown and Netflix original, You as Guinevere Beck. It is also worth mentioning that Five Nights at Freddy’s is produced by Blumhouse Productions, the same studio responsible for films such as Insidious, Get Out, and Megan.

Film Direction and Aesthetic

Since the film has yet to release, it’s difficult to be overly harsh on what’s been shown so far. What has been shown, however, leaves plenty to be desired. One major thing that makes the original Five Nights at Freddy’s so special is an uncanny aesthetic reminiscent of old FMV games like Harvester. It’s also no secret that the game’s setting is based on real-life animatronic restaurants like Showbiz Pizza Place and Chuck E Cheese. Based on the trailer, it seems they will be utilizing CGI for Freddy and his friends. While there is nothing wrong with CGI, based on how the animatronics look in the trailer, it seems tacky and overly cartoony. While the games themselves were aimed at a teenage audience, the movie seems to be geared toward children.

Release Date

Regardless of how the film performs, it’s still impressive to think back to how the franchise initially started. From being created by one man in 2014 to receiving its own film less than ten years later. The movie is slated for release October 27th in theaters and on Peacock.

A lover of gore and over the top violence, no movie can make my stomach squirm. The only thing better than a bloody death scene is a well choreographed stunt. Whether it be action or horror, if it has blood in it, then I've likely already seen it.
