Films have often used the rictus grin, blank eyed stare and immoveable plastic facial features of dolls to often terrifying effect as seen whenever we watch Amanda Holden on Britain’s Got Talent but the Five Nights at Freddy’s trailer is the latest film to use such a monstrous look. The last time we saw murderous animatronic was the Nicolas Cage horror fest Willy’s Wonderland but this new film is based on the terrifying horror game phenomenon it now becomes a blood-chilling cinematic event as Blumhouse— the producer of M3GAN, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man— brings Five Nights at Freddy’s to the big screen.
The film follows a troubled security guard as he begins working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. While spending his first night on the job, he realizes the night shift at Freddy’s won’t be so easy to make it through.
The film stars Josh Hutcherson (Ultraman, The Hunger Games franchise), Elizabeth Lail (You, Mack & Rita), Piper Rubio (Holly & Ivy, Unstable), Kat Conner Sterling (We Have a Ghost, 9-1-1), with Mary Stuart Masterson (Blindspot, Fried Green Tomatoes) and Matthew Lillard (Good Girls, Scream).Five Nights at Freddy’s is directed by Emma Tammi (The Wind, Blood Moon) and is written by Scott Cawthon, Emma Tammi and Seth Cuddeback. The film’s iconic animatronic characters will be created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
