Fan Reactions to ‘Five Nights At Freddy’s’!

Nearly 10 years and many jumpscares after the original game, we now have the long-awaited ‘Five Nights At Freddy’s’ movie. Let’s see how Freddy and his friends fared with audiences!

Back in 2014, there was one man and one video game that were about to flip the entire horror game genre on its head. That man was Scott Cawthon and his game was Five Nights At Freddy’s. Putting the player into a first-person fight for survival against terrifying Chuck E. Cheese type haunted animatronics, the game was a massive hit with general audiences and YouTubers alike. Now the film based on that game has netted $80 million in the U.S. alone on its opening weekend. Here is what fans are saying about the new horror film. 

Fan art! Any time someone puts their paintbrushes to work after being inspired is great to see. After seeing Freddy and the Fazbear gang in action some shared their renditions of Five Nights At Freddy’s villain, Springtrap. After viewing this fan art of the horrifying antagonist we can say we are both inspired and thoroughly creeped out.

What would any 21st-century movie be if it didn’t have memes made in its honor? Five Nights At Freddy’s is no different and after seeing one of the animatronics Foxy do his iconic run, one fan in particular made their meme using the song ‘Break My Stride’ to poke fun and share a good laugh with us all.

If you’re cosplaying, I’m in. Though most cosplaying mainly happens at conventions like Comic Con, many fans showed their support for Five Nights At Freddy’s by dressing as characters like Springtrap and The Puppet.

It seems Universal Pictures aren’t the only people happy that the film did well at the box office. Fans of the series took to X to revel in the film’s financial success and celebrate its overtaking of other box office horror hits like 2017’s It.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what about great music made by FNAF fans? Fans of the series will most definitely recognize this tune from and be able to relish in all its guitar string glory.

“Careful. This is the moment when the supposedly dead killer comes back to life, for one last scare.” In an age of post-credit scenes dominated by superhero films, it’s refreshing to see other films take a swing at that extra bit of movie, especially when a horror movie like FNAF gives us one last scare with YouTuber CoryXKenshin to take home.

With Josh Hutcherson playing Mike the security guard, how could the movie not be a smash hit? Starring in movies like The Hunger Games and The Polar Express Josh Hutcherson made sure to bring one of his best performances to date for Five Nights At Freddy’s.

Long time horror and movie fans know Matthew Lillard needs no introduction. From the first Scream movie to live-action renditions of Scooby-Doo Matthew has been synonymous with the horror genre for years. Matthew Lillard is creepy, unnerving, and dangerous in Five Nights At Freddy’s and makes Springtrap his iconic.
