The movie everyone will be seeing this Halloween has released its first proper trailer
It comes from the producers of several recent great horrors like Get Out, The Invisible Man and M3GAN.
An official trailer has hit the web for Five Nights at Freddy's, an upcoming movie based on the popular survival horror video game franchise of the same name.
The film stars Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games series) as a troubled security guard who accepts a job working at a once-successful but now abandoned family entertainment centre named Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.
However, he soon realises the night shift at Freddy’s will not be so easy to make it through, discovering that the venue's four animatronic mascots – Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy – move to kill anyone that is still there after midnight.
Along with Hutcherson, the horror's cast includes Elizabeth Lail (Netflix's You), Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo, Scream) and Mary Stuart Masterson (Benny & Joon, Fried Green Tomatoes), with Emma Tammi (The Wind) on directing duties.
Tammi also co-wrote the script for the film, alongside Scott Cawthon - who created the Five Nights at Freddy's video game series - and Seth Cuddeback.
Meanwhile, the games' iconic animatronic characters will be brought to the big screen with the help of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop - the legendary special and visual effects company founded by the creator of The Muppets.
Made with the help of film production company Blumhouse - who previously produced such horror hits as Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge, Get Out, The Invisible Man and this year's M3GAN - Five Nights at Freddy will land in Irish cinemas on 27 October - just in time for Halloween.
