The Five Nights at Freddy’s games have been spooking kids on the internet since 2014, and now Blumhouse is set to release a film adaptation of the first game starring Josh Hutcherson and Matthew Lillard.
The film is set to release this Halloween season, and we have a new inside look at the practical puppets used for the film, all of which include Freddy and the rest of his twisted furry friends. Check this out:
Though a lot of fans would expect Freddy and his friends to be brought to life with CG, the movie had made it a point to make them practical puppets—even going so far as to hire the Jim Henson company when it came to making Freddy and the gang.
With the robots expected to look like a clunky animatronic show, it was probably best to get them to be practical. After all, they also aren’t expected to move smoothly, and it probably adds to the scare factor that they also don’t move as well.
So far, a lot of fans are excited for the film, and even non-FNAF followers are curious to know what all the hype is about when it comes to these Chuck E. Cheese ripoffs.
Here’s the official description for the film:
