Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie

Why doesn’t Hollywood ever learn from its mistake? After a series of terrible to so-so adaptations, there is now yet another movie adaption of a video game. The game in question is…Five Nights at Freddy’s.

Now for those of you who have never heard of the game, Five Nights at Freddy’s is set in a family fast food restaurant called Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where animatronic robots entertain customers by day and become twisted killers at night. The game is a cult hit and there are already 3 games in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise.

Having said that; why does Hollywood keep making the same mistakes? Now I know there are several movies based on video games coming out (Hitman: Agent 47, World of Warcraft, Assassin Creed) but has there ever been a hit? The only series that can make an argument that it is a hit is the Resident Evil series and even then, many would argue against it.

So with that track record, would a point-and-click horror survival series from a small independent developer make it? Sorry but I just don’t think so.
