Reel Review with Zoe (Real FM)
Reel 2: From Indie Horror Game to Blockbuster Film (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 mysteriously successful videogame to movie adaptation, "Five Nights at Freddy's." Zoe shares the story of the franchise creator, Scott Cawthon, a failed Christian videogame developer and gives context to the video's popularity online thanks in large part to YouTube. The themes of this franchise may be dark and disturbing, but there are redemptive qualities to the film's narrative, focusing on family and the protection of kids.
