One of the biggest surprise hits of the year, the movie adaptation of the popular horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s is now available on 4K Blu-ray in a special ‘Night Shift Edition‘.
Geared towards a younger audience, Five Nights at Freddy’s plays out like a freakier episode of Goosebumps and is a great gateway movie into the horror genre. It is also much more enjoyable than what the critics thought of it, which is apparent from the 87% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes versus the 31% critics score.

The official description of Five Nights at Freddy’s:
The producers of ‘M3GAN’ and ‘The Black Phone’ bring the terrifying horror game phenomenon to life as a blood-chilling film. Recently fired and desperate for work so that he can keep custody of his little sister, Mike (Josh Hutcherson; ‘The Hunger Games’ Franchise) agrees to take a position as a night security guard at an abandoned theme restaurant: Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria. But Mike soon discovers that nothing at Freddy’s is what it seems. Mike’s nights at Freddy’s will lead him into unexplainable encounters with the supernatural and drag him into the black heart of an unspeakable nightmare.
