Five Nights at Freddy’s is a popular horror video game franchise that features killer animatronics inside a children’s restaurant, definitely taking a page out of Chuck E. Cheese’s (except for the whole murder aspect). The live-action movie will be released later this month, and a new featurette has been released, giving viewers a taste of the different killer animatronics.

Five Nights at Freddy’s will be released in theaters and premiere on Peacock on October 27, 2023.
