Movie Review: Five Nights at Freddy’s

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, released last Friday, was definitely a movie
Five Nights at Friday’s might be the scariest movie of the year.

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, released last Friday, was definitely a movie. The much anticipated theatrical release of the hit horror franchise quickly became the 22nd highest-grossing video game movie of all time, with $130,578,000 in sales and counting. Fans poured into the theaters wearing cosplay and shouting references to the games, creating a uniquely interactive atmosphere that would be impossible to replicate.

The movie starred Josh Hutcherson, known for his role as Peeta in The Hunger Games, as the film’s main protagonist, Mike Schmidt. As Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza’s newest security guard, his duties seemed easier said than done. The movie also features Elizabeth Lail as mysterious police officer Vanessa and Matthew Lillard as Steve Raglan. Fans may remember Lillard as Shaggy from the live-action Scooby-Doo franchise and Stu Macher from Scream, while Lail played Beck in Season 1 of You

The long-awaited release of Five Nights at Freddy’s was a relief for many fans. Development started in 2015, but the movie shifted studios from Warner Bros. to Blumhouse Productions.  The main cast was confirmed in December 2022, while other cast additions were signed in March 2023. Filming began in February 2023 in New Orleans and ended that April. 

The plot was not as scary as the trailers implied and seemed all over the place, from the animatronics creating a pillow fort with Abby, Vanessa, and Mike to someone getting chomped in half. There was a clear problem that had to be solved, but the inconsistent tone lowered the rating for us. The cinematography was nothing too special, as it was neither particularly bad nor good. The characters ranged from versatile with Mike to annoying with Abby, his little sister.

Featuring cameos from the likes of MatPat of Game Theory and Cory Kenshin of CoryxKenshin, all that was left was Markiplier. Markiplier was scheduled for a cameo as the security guard at the beginning of the movie, but scheduling conflicts led to him being cut or dropping out. 

We give the movie a 7 out of 10 Faz-Stars overall. “That was the best cinematic experience of my life!”a little boy sitting behind Kristine in the audience yelled at the end of the movie. Whether you agree or not with him is not up to us to decide — stream the movie on Peacock, or even better, head to a movie theater to experience it yourself.
