Five Nights At Freddy’s: Peeta from “The Hunger Games” featuring…a deranged cupcake?

Blumhouse Production’s “Five Nights At Freddy’s” stirs up the reviews between die-hard fans and newcomers to the franchise. Fair use photo from Peacock.

Five Nights At Freddy’s came out on Peacock Oct. 26 and released in theaters the following day. The movie was beloved by fans of the story, but the reviews have mixed results.

The movie was directed by Emma Tammi (The Wind, Jay Myself) and grossed $80 million in the box office. On Rotten Tomatoes the film is rated 29% on the tomatometer, and 88% on the audience score. 

I didn’t really like the movie, but I like that it brought me back to the video game obsession. I can’t stop thinking about it.

Reviews argue about whether this is a great addition to the story or a bad video game to movie adaptation. Many people were attracted to theaters for the film’s cast including Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Matthew Lillard (Scream). 

It wasn’t a good movie, but it was a fun movie, and I enjoyed my time watching it. Matthew Lillard did exactly as I wanted him to in this movie.

In my opinion, the movie was not as scary as I hoped. However, the film was interesting, and I would definitely watch it again. The storyline was a bit confusing and hard to follow, but it eventually all came together in the end. I would recommend this movie if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary.
