Review: “Five Nights at Freddy’s”

The movie based on one of the most followed horror video games of the last decade is finally in the cinema. “Five Nights at Freddy’s” was one of the most anticipated films by video game fans, since the film arrived on the big screen more than eight years after the game came out.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s” (abbreviated as FNAF) is a series of independent horror video games created by Scott Cawthon. The video game is based on the story of a security guard who works at a fictional pizzeria called Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza during the night. The peculiarity of the game lies in the fact that the animatronic characters, which are animated robots used to entertain restaurant customers during the day, become disturbingly active and hostile at night.

But we all know that making an adaptation of a video game into a movie is a bit complicated, which leads us to ask ourselves, is “Five Nights at Freddy’s” a good movie? I would say that it is a pretty good movie, but if you haven’t played the video game, understanding the movie might be a little difficult. If you’re not even slightly familiar with the story, you won’t really enjoy it at all, as the story is a bit bland, the plot twists predictable, and there’s little horror. The film stagnates in the limbo of what could have been and was not.

Therefore, to rate the movie we must do it from two perspectives. For those who have played the video game, the rating would be a 7 out of 10. And for those who have never played or are not familiar with the story, the rate would be 4 out of 10.
