The animatronic animals come to life at night at Freddy’s Pizza Place
In the past, movies based on video games have gotten itself a bad reputation. However, some of the best video game movies have come out of the horror genre. 2017 will see its next video game turned movie with this indie game. They haven’t released a lot of information on the movie. But we can guess. Five Nights at Freddy’s takes place in a children’s pizza place just like Chuck E. Cheese.
There is one problem though, at night the animatronic animals come to life at night and are out to kill. Freddy’s employs one night security guard to protect the place from the vengeful animatronics. This movie plays with our fears that toys come to life at night. It takes something that is supposed to be a fun and happy place and fills it with horrors. This movie has the potential to do what Jaws did for the ocean to places like Chuck E. Cheese.
Jason Voorhees returns to life in 2017 for more hacking and slashing. The iconic villain is getting a new movie and rumor has it, we might actually learn why the hockey mask wearing slasher never dies. Seriously, how can he die in 12 other movies only to come back to kill more horrified victims in the next one? We might just find out soon. The horror classic is a staple of the genre, watching Jason Voorhees lumber around in his hockey mask slowly chasing his victims never gets old.
