My Five Nights At Freddys Review

My Five Nights At Freddy’s Review


This movie wasn’t what I was expecting. 

I went into the Five Nights At Freddy’s (FNAF) movie with completely blind eyes, I hadn’t seen any trailers, ads, or clips at all. I honestly had no idea what I was walking into, but I was excited. 

I have always been a big fan of FNAF, not so much the game play, but the story telling aspect. As a true crime lover and a big fan of the thriller genre, I loved hearing the lore behind the FNAF games and trying to figure out what it all meant. 

When I walked into the theater I expected to see a movie about the storyline of FNAF and the backstory behind it all; I was mistaken. Instead, I found myself terrified at multitudes of jump scares and eerie noises. It was also a very wholesome story, about a brother and sister just trying to get by. It was an incredibly well made movie, but I wouldn’t recommend seeing it unless you are a true fan. 

The film relies heavily on background knowledge, and I don’t believe that it would make sense for anyone who hasn’t been following the game since its production. Most of the plot has to do with prior knowledge, knowing who the characters are, and what happened to the children who were murdered. 

Another opinion: I wish it was a documentary style movie. I wish it showed the life of William Afton, the heartbreak, the murders, and him losing himself to the animatronics. I think that the movie would have had more value that way when seeing it, but I understand that that kind of movie would only attract a small audience 

Overall: ★★★★☆
