Five Nights at Freddy’s (2023)

The Story

The terrifying horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s has become a blood-chilling cinematic event. 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.

Why I’m Excited

I’m a child of the 80s, and animatronics were just what we expected at birthday parties. So, how could I not be excited about a movie where the animatronics come to life at night and haunt the place. Oh yeah, and why would I ever miss a chance to see hotty Matthew Lillard (my first love, Hackers) and the woman who molded my youth as the crazy tomboy Idgie Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes, Ms. Mary Stuart Masterson!?
