The Haunting Plot Of Five Nights At Freddy’s Trailer

The story follows Mike Schmidt who starts his job at a pizza shop as a nighttime security guard. He soon finds that the animatronics that amuse the visitors in the daytime are creepy robots who are both alive and deadly, ready to kill anyone who stays in the park after midnight. With an assigned night duty, Mike has to survive these monsters to see the light of the day.

The franchise of the film formed eight months after the release of the first game of Five Nights at Freddy’s made by Scott Cawthone. Overall, the concept of the game is quite terrifying. It features Mike Schmidt (the player) who is surviving the cursed animatronics as he starts his night duty as a security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Currently, there are four series of the game available to play. In addition to that, the creator of the game helped fans publish their own FNaF games which expanded his broad vision. The increasing popularity of the game resulted in the publication of its graphic novels, short stories, and even a novel trilogy.

In 2015, Warner Bros picked up this project to produce it. However, the film’s development seemed cursed from the first day. After many changes in the production team, WB gave up on the movie. Then in 2021, Jason Blum revealed that he would be making this movie under the Blumhouse label. Finally, in 2023, we got a confirmation update that the movie is in production and is expected to be released in October. 

The cast of the movie includes Josh Hutcherson as Mike and Elizabeth Lail as Venessa, joined by Matthew Lillard, Kevin Foster, and Kat Conner Sterling. Moreover, the game’s creator Scott Cawthon serves as the writer along with Emma Tammi (who is also the director) and Seth Cuddeback. He is also a producer with Jason Blum, Russell Binder, Beatriz Sequeira, and Christopher H. Warner.

What To Expect From This New Franchise

The trailer seems stunning for someone who has a fondness for disturbing slasher films full of violent content and isn’t affected by the horror-filled cinematography.
