After years of anticipation, the release date for the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is now just around the corner. With the original game developer Scott Cawthrone collaborating with the renowned horror movie powerhouse Blumhouse, it’s safe to say that our expectations are soaring.
The film primarily adapts the first game in the series, following security guard Michael Schmidt as he battles to survive a night shift alone with deadly animatronics. As detailed in our FNaF movie review, it impressively captures the essence of the game. What’s even better is that you have various options for how you want to experience this video game movie. Just be sure not to watch it in the dark, or alone, and definitely not with William Afton.
Where can I watch the FNaF movie?
The highly anticipated “Five Nights at Freddy’s” movie is set to have a wide theatrical release on October 27, with simultaneous streaming on Peacock. For fans in the UK, the film will hit theaters a day earlier on October 25, 2023, offering plenty of time to get acquainted with Freddy Fazbear and his eerie companions just in time for Halloween.
As for streaming options, “Five Nights at Freddy’s” will be exclusively available on Peacock starting October 27, 2023. Subscribers of the streaming service can enjoy the movie for free. Given that both Peacock and Universal Pictures (the film’s distributor) are under the umbrella of parent company NBCUniversal, it’s logical for them to feature their movies on their own platforms.
For those wondering about other streaming platforms, it’s worth noting that the movie will not be available on Netflix, Disney Plus, or as part of an Amazon Prime subscription anytime soon. However, it’s expected that “Five Nights at Freddy’s” will eventually be available for purchase or rent on Amazon Prime, and a DVD or Blu-Ray release may be in the cards for the future.
