…maybe the movie just needed NIC CAGE like Willy’s Wonderland..
After all the build up to FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’s, the reviews are in. Rotten Tomatoes is counting it as as rotten..
At PG-13, will the pre and just teens go see the FNAF film that they played all through their single digits??
But what do they know anyway!?
Just a few snippets:
“Caught between PG and R, as well as lost at the crossroads of inadvertent comedy and horror, the PG-13 Five Nights at Freddy’s has to go down as one of the poorest films in any genre this year.”
“A weird horror concoction, fleetingly clever in the early going before gumming up the gears down the home stretch.”
“One problem is that the title imposes a stop-and-start structure which keeps killing the momentum. One scary night would work better than five with time-outs for daytime plot about the evil auntie or a deep backstory.”
“Expanding the game’s simple, primal premise with a surfeit of character melodrama, it’s a Five Nights at Freddy’s that labors under the bizarre assumption that the loyal fanbase wants a lot of extraneous plot surrounding the fun-center horror.”
But does it matter???
We are getting word of this tonight: Five Nights at Freddy‘s is eyeing a $50 million-plus start and possibly even more. At that level, it would make it the second-best domestic box office opening of the fall behind Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour !!
