Why watch this film?
An adaptation of the popular horror video game series, "Five Nights at Freddy's" takes the basic premise of the games - a security guard must survive the night shift at a children's restaurant inhabited by killer animatronics - and adds more layers to it. The story follows a conflicted security guard (Josh Hutcherson, from The Hunger Games) who takes on the questionable job to take care of his little sister and prevent her from being taken away. Amid this family drama plot, the terrifying atmosphere is somewhat lost, resulting in a rather average horror movie. However, for fans of the franchise's mythology, there's a lot to see here, so they will undoubtedly enjoy it.
