Five Nights at Freddy’s (out Oct 26) gets a few things right… but it’s a long way from five stars. Framed as a horror-thriller, it’s the story of a dilapidated pizzeria, a down-on-his-luck security guard, and some “possessed” animatronic toys. I liked the idea, star Josh Hutcherson, and the supernatural dream stuff. On the flip side, the direction is uninspired, the horror is limited, and the plot loses its way. Grade: C+.
