Five Nights at Freddy’s: Post-credits scene, is it scary, and what to know

The possessed-animatronics horror video game Five Nights at Freddy’sThe game is only a few years old but the movie adaptation has been planned almost from the day the game was released. This seems to be a long development period. Warner Bros. acquired the film rights in 2015. The project was then handed over to Blumhouse two years later. Scott Cawthon (the creator of the video game) wrote and rewrote both the original script as well as a revised version, while child-horror directors like Gil Kenan(Monster HouseChris Columbus (Gremlins“The first Harry Potter” and Percy Jackson’s movies), signed on but then jumped out of the project.

The Peacock debuts the movie simultaneously on Peacock and in cinemas under Emma Tammi. The franchise’s most hardcore fans probably consider themselves beyond ready to watch the Freddy’s film. How about everybody else? If you’re not sure, have a look at this handy (and extremely spoiler-light) Q&A. We don’t dig into the considerable lore behind FNAF here — there are endless YouTube videos for that. We’re mostly talking about who this film is for and what to expect.

Yes. There is a mid-credits clip that appears less than a second after the cut. It isn’t integral to the movie’s lore, and doesn’t feel like a sequel tease, though it certainly could be elaborated on in a sequel. It’s more of a comic scene involving YouTuber and horror-game aficionado Cory DeVante “CoryxKenshin” Williams, though he doesn’t seem to be playing himself. As for a real post-credits sequence that plays after the credits, Five Nights at Freddy’s doesn’t have one — just a brief, not especially exciting audio-only Easter egg.

Can you enjoy Five Nights at Freddy’s if you haven’t played the games?

At a Blumhouse panel for the recent New York Comic Con, producer Jason Blum explained that he thinks a lot of adaptations — books, comics, and games alike — falter when creators try to simultaneously please hardcore fans and remain accessible to new audiences. Blum said that the company had finally cracked Five Nights at Freddy’s In other words, they decided to just please the fans and not think about a wider audience. They decided, in the end, to please their fans.

This was an obvious applause line, at a convention that was filled with fans. But that doesn’t mean the movie is hard to follow. The movie starts with the same premise as the original game. A man named Mike (Josh Hutcherson), is hired to be an overnight security guard at a Chuck E. Cheese arcade-style restaurant that has been abandoned. He meets some animatronics whose origins are strange and unsettling. There’s no comics-style backstory that demands pre-movie study.

Those who come to the film for the first time and want to know what all the buzz is about could be confused by other factors. It’s a movie’s backstory It is a good idea to use a bilingual translator parceled out awkwardly, in ways that are sometimes confusing. Characters’ decisions don’t always make sense. And there’s as much family melodrama as thrill-ride scares. There isn’t much you can do about it except assure yourself that any confusion you experience in watching it isn’t just you. The movie isIt’s not just a lack of fan information which explains all the inconsistencies. Blum’s “for-the-fans” vibe is more about how much the story will appeal to average people, rather than whether they are able to understand it.

Longtime fans hungering for an exploration or expansion of the game series’ continuing mythology should prepare themselves to see something more simplified. Some of the more complex lore is missing, as would be expected for an adaption, although it may return in future sequels. Blum may not have intended it, but this does make the film more accessible to newcomers.

The core team, Freddy, Bonnie Chica Foxy, Carl Cupcake, may not get as much screen time as fans expect.

The word “Is” is used to describe the concept of a person. Five Nights at Freddy’sSafe for children?

For an ostensible horror franchise — one based on nostalgia for and subversion of animatronic characters that date to the 1980s — the Five Nights at Freddy’sUnexpectedly, games attract a lot of youngsters. The kid appeal of the game is reminiscent of when elementary school children would describe Freddy or Jason’s antics, either firsthand and/or from rumors. It’s not like A Nightmare on Elm StreetYou can also find out more about Friday, the 13th, however, Freddy’sThe rating is PG-13 and not R.

Does it have the same kid-friendly appeal as other PG-13 films? AquamanYou can also find out more about Captain Marvel? The movie’s intensity will vary depending on your child, but this is not an endless thrill ride. It isn’t as intense as fellow PG-13 horror movies The RingYou can also find out more about Drag me to Hell. What are the most horrifying aspects of Halloween? Freddy’sThe backstory of this film is kept either off-screen or completely unmentioned. Also, none of the scenes seem to provide pure nightmare fuel. Some of the five nights are largely incident-free.

There are a lot of cheap jump-scares with music-stings, and some gruesome junior-level bits. This is a more violent PG-13 film than the average superhero flick, and that will likely appeal to its YouTube-savvy younger fans. Each child is different but, in general, a 12 or 13-year-old is a good age to cut off.

Wasn’t there already a horror movie about evil animatronics?

Yes! Five Nights at Freddy’sThe movie version of the book took so much time to come out that a good knockoff swept it aside. Willy’s Wonderland doesn’t have nearly so much lore as the FNAF games, but its premise is basically One Night at Cage’sNicolas Cage is a man playing an overnight janitor for a Chuck E. Cheese like location. As expected, the interesting element of the movie is Cage’s performance — especially because it’s entirely dialogue-free, muting one of Cage’s most distinctive features as an actor.

The novelty isn’t quite enough for Willy’s Wonderland to reach the upper echelon of Cage’s last decade, but hardcore fans of either the actor or the concept might enjoy the strange combination of a unique movie-star brand with an off-brand version of the famous game series. The game is a complete rip-off of the famous series. Five Nights Cage, the shorter version with a sillier design is also favored by novices.
