After months of eager anticipation and years of speculation, Blumhouse, the powerhouse of production, has finally unveiled the official trailer for the live-action adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s. This release has sent waves of excitement through the horror community and fervent fans of FNAF, who are meticulously dissecting every frame of the gripping 2-minute trailer.

One burning question that has been racing through the minds of gamers and YouTube enthusiasts is the potential involvement of the renowned YouTuber CoryxKenshin in the FNAF cinematic universe. CoryxKenshin, a prominent figure on YouTube since 2009, gained fame for his uproarious gameplay and unforgettable videos, particularly in the realm of horror video games.

In a climactic moment of the trailer, Cory makes his appearance as a taxi driver who unwittingly picks up passengers outside the fateful pizzeria. Little does he know, seated in the back are Abby Schmidt (Piper Rubio) and a disembodied animatronic head. As he glances into his rearview mirror and encounters the startling sight, Cory humorously laments about consistently attracting “weirdos” as a cab driver.
