Reel Review with Zoe (Real FM)
Reel 1: Five Nights at Freddy's (Ep 4)
Welcome to Reel Review! This is where Zoe helps you answer the question, “Should I see this?” and invites you into a deeper conversation about the story’s themes and message.
This episode covers the Five Nights at Freddy's movie. "There is horror in this film but it is not a horror film" as Zoe describes it in this spoiler free review. She breaks down her recommendations into three categories:
1) if you're a fan of the franchise
2) if you don't know anything but like horror films
3) if you don't know anything about the franchise and don't like horror films.
Zoe also goes into an explanation as to how there is redemption in this story and at the heart of it, is a story about family and protecting kids.
In Reel 2, Zoe covers the story of the franchise creator, Scott Cawthon, a failed Christian videogame developer who spawned this entire franchise and dives into more specifics of the film.
