Yesterday, Twitch streamer Rhemery accomplished what Five Nights at Freddy’s fans and YouTubers around the world have been trying (and failing) to accomplish these past few weeks — beating a supposedly “unbeatable” mode in Ultimate Custom Night. He was quickly followed by another streamer, Dawko.
The man who helped shape the worlds of Harry Potter, Gremlins and The Goonies is now moving into video game horror. Chris Columbus will write and direct Five Nights at Freddy’s, based on the popular video game series about a security guard battling evil animatronics in a pizza shop.
Once a fandom gets big enough, it starts to develop a reputation. In the case of Five Nights at Freddy’s, the reputation isn’t necessarily a good one – and the creator of the series knows it.
