preview for Five Nights at Freddy's first-look trailer (Universal)

If you’ve ever found animatronic kid’s characters to be vaguely creepy, you’re not the only one. That’s basically the entire premise of Five Nights at Freddy’s, a new horror movie based on the popular video game series, about a security guard at a pizza chain who finds that the restaurant’s beloved mascots come to life after dark—and not in a cute Toy Story kind of way. More of a Chucky kind of way, where the seemingly cute and innocuous figure ends up committing a whole lot of grisly murders.

Josh Hutcherson, best known for playing Peeta in The Hunger Games, stars as Mike Schmidt, the new night guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. Elizabeth Lail, who portrayed Beck, the object of Joe Goldberg’s murderous affections in Season 1 of You, plays local cop Vanessa, who has a link to the strange goings-on at Freddy’s. And horror icon Matthew Lillard (Scream, 13 Ghosts) plays Mike’s career counselor, who might also know more than he is letting on about those offputting animatronic animals.
