Five Nights at Freddy’s Rotten Tomatoes Score is Just That: Rotten!

Summary

  • Five Nights at Freddy’s is receiving atrocious reviews from critics, with a 25% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, suggesting that only fans of the game will appreciate it.
  • Despite the negative reviews, the film is expected to make $50 million over its opening weekend, possibly due to its release during the Halloween season.
  • Some critics have praised the film for capturing the essence of the game’s quirky horror and providing enough scares for horror fans while still being enjoyable for general audiences.


The scariest thing about Five Nights at Freddy’s might be its Rotten Tomatoes score. Director Emma Tammi’s horror flick has officially begun its Thursday previews at the box office. As a result, the critics’ reviews are beginning to trickle in — and they are atrocious. At the time of this writing, Five Nights at Freddy’s is registering a 25% rating on the Tomatometer. Adam Graham of the Detroit News writes:

Only fans who come to hear the game’s catchphrases and callbacks will feel seen, anyone else is better off bellying up to the bar at their local Chuck E. Cheese.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is forecast to make an impressive $50 million over its opening weekend, and that’s even with a day-and-date release on Peacock. Tammi’s film officially opens on Friday, October 27, and fans can stream or binge-watch the video game-based movie online, too. Judging from the early reviews, of which there are only 68 on RT currently, many may opt for the cheaper in-home option. A.A. Dowd of IGN writes:

“Expanding the game’s simple, primal premise with a surfeit of character melodrama, it’s Five Nights at Freddy’s that labors under the bizarre assumption that the loyal fan base wants a lot of extraneous plot surrounding the fun-center horror.”

Wendy Lane Szany of The Movie Couple adds:

Fans of the game will love this movie. It goes heavy on the lore and has a lot of Easter eggs. Not very scary aside from a few jump scares. The game is way scarier. Would have liked to see more of Freddy and gang.

It’s Not All Bad News for Five Nights at Freddy’s

Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games fame plays the protagonist, Mike Schmidt — no, not the Phillies’ infielder — in Five Nights at Freddy’s. Based on the horror video game series of the same name, which was conceived by Scott Cawthon, director Emma Tammi’s big-screen adaptation is languishing. And at this time on Rotten Tomatoes, the critics continue to pepper the movie with scathing reviews. Mark Kennedy of the Associated Press writes:

Caught between PG and R, as well as lost at the crossroads of inadvertent comedy and horror, the PG-13 Five Nights at Freddy’s has to go down as one of the poorest films in any genre this year.

Natalia Winkelman of the New York Times says:

You may chuckle, but it’s hard to tell if the movie is laughing with you.

Five Nights at Freddy’s fans are divided in their assessment of the Silver Screen version of the video game. But the film does have the luxury of launching in the climate of the spookiest season of the year, which continues to showcase scary cinema. Five Nights at Freddy’s will be joining the likes of Saw X and The Exorcist: Believer over its opening weekend. And it’s not all bad news from the critics either. Jordy Sirkin of Jordy Reviews It writes:

Perfectly captures the menacing yet endearing animatronics with the same quirky horror that fans enjoyed with M3GAN. Less frights but all fun.

And Grace Randolph of Beyond the Trailer arguably gave Five Nights at Freddy’s its best review of all. Randolph says:

A fun treat for Halloween weekend, plus this PG-13 movie is fun for almost everyone! Enough scares to satisfy horror fans but not so many that general audiences can’t enjoy the story, which is well done. Nice breakout film for director Emma Tammi.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is now playing in theaters, and the horror flick will drop Friday, October 27 on Peacock.
