Story Outline

Five Nights at Freddy's

At the Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, the abandoned pizzeria and the family entertainment hub that was once a very successful place, there is an evening security guard who attempted to flee from a building but was captured and had been strapped to the torture device that killed him.

Five Nights at Freddy's

Later that time, Mike Schmidt, the mall security guard was fired for assaulting the negligent father that he mistook for the kidnapper. Steve Raglan, Mike’s career counselor, offers him the job as an evening guard at Freddy’s. Although initially reluctant, Mike accepted after social services threatened to take the custody of Abby his younger sister and give her to Jane, their estranged aunt, who desires the monthly payments custody.

Five Nights at Freddy's

During his first evening on his job, Mike fell asleep and dreamt about the abducting of his younger brother, Garrett. He met five kids who witnessed the crime also, but then flee when he approached them. The next day, Jane hired the gang of vandals, and that includes Max, Abby’s babysitter, and is led through Jeff, Max’s brother, to vandalize the bistro to let Mike fired and then hasten Jane’s supervision of Abby. During the shift of Mike that night, he met Vanessa Shelly, a police officer, who explained that Freddy’s closed in the 1980s after the five children were killed there. The victims’ and the suspect’s bodies were never located. Once Mike’s shift ended and he left, these vandals break in, and the animatronic mascots of the restaurant—Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Mr. Cupcake, Chica, and Foxy—kill the entire crowd. Max’s disappearance forced Mike to take Abby along on the next shift, wherein Abby and Mike, the animatronics befriend discovered that the animatronics were possessed by those amnesiac ghosts of those missing kids, whose leader consistently mentioned the “yellow rabbit”.

Writer’s Observation

Now, personally, you cannot find here the actual concept of the FNAF all that are scary so it was not that scary watching it. The jump scares were really effective but did the movie ever make you feel uneasy? Not really, but then again, it is a personal preference for some and not for all. The cinematography, sound design, and the entire design for everything have been incredible. For the Americans who had probably wondering if they can take their kids with them, well that will be up to you.

This movie is not an overloaded with gory images, but there had been one or two instances where it is really brutal, so just remember that. The ending part “twist” is predictable. If you’re not aware of the lore, then it may catch you off. But if you are even slightly knowledgeable of it, you likely wouldn’t name it a twist. Overall, this movie is still recommended to watch if you want something spooky for the Halloween season.
