Five Nights At Freddy’s Movie Just In Time For Halloween

First teaser trailer for famed horror game film adaptation ahead of October release date

Lately, it seems like nearly every popular video game series, from the zombie action title, The Last of Us, to the Fallout franchise, is receiving a film or series adaptation. And horror game, Five Nights at Freddy’s is no exception. The popular horror title takes place in a run-down pizzeria full of homicidal animatronic anthropomorphic animals. The player’s main goal in the game is to survive the night.

A Five Nights at Freddy’s film was first teased in 2015 with Harry Potter director Chris Columbus set to direct. However, the game’s creator, Scott Cawthon, insisted that the script stay true to the game. This led to the cancellation of previous attempts at a film adaptation.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Coming to the Big Screen

Finally, fans will get the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie they have been waiting for. Ensuring the film stays true to its roots, Cawthon is credited as a screenwriter and producer of the upcoming movie. The film is being directed by Emma Tammi, with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions acting as a co-producer.

Josh Hutcherson stars as a night security guard at an abandoned Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Universal Pictures just released the film’s first teaser trailer, which shows Hutcherson. Also making an appearance in the trailer is Mathew Lillard, who played Billie Loomis’s accomplish Stu in the 1996 horror film Scream. While it is unclear what Lillard’s role is, he does give off sinister vibes sitting behind a desk in his brief appearance. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop created each of the animatronics in the film.

Horror Game Adaptations

Five Nights at Freddy’s will premiere on October 27th on Peacock’s streaming service and theatres alike. This isn’t the only horror game adaptation in the works. DarkStone Digital’s The Mortuary Assistant is receiving a live-action film adaptation courtesy of independent horror producer, DreadXP. Conversely,  DreadXP and AMC are creating a video game adaptation of Shudder’s Creepshow series. Additionally, a new Silent Hill film is in the works.
