In his new film, Nicolas Cage will play the janitor at an abandoned amusement park, where he will battle animatronics with killer instincts.
In recent years, Nicolas Cage has no one to stop him. One day he is adapting you to Lovecraft (Color Out of Space), the next he wants to kill his children on the big screen (Mom and Dad) and another is dedicated to fighting with a chainsaw against hippies and hellish bikers (Mandy). The last madness of the Oscar-winning actor is called Willy’s Wonderland, it comes out in 2021 and has just released a trailer that surely reminds more than one of the Five Nights at Freddys saga. Terror, abandoned places, animatronics and blood, lots of blood. What more could you want?
“The Janitor (that’s what Cage’s character is called) is lost in a remote city and can’t pay the local garage to have his Jeep repaired so he can go home. So, to pay for the repairs, he agrees to spend a night cleaning Willy’s Wonderland, a long-abandoned children’s amusement park “, can be read in the film’s synopsis. “It’s actually a death trap, a living nightmare in which the animatronics from Willy’s Wonderland come to life to destroy him. The Janitor will be forced to fight the monsters and try to survive by any means until dawn. And no, The Janitor did not play fair. “
The viral terror of Five Nights at Freddy’s
Interestingly, that synopsis could pass perfectly as an adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s, a video game saga with more than twelve installments to its credit. In fact, for this 2021 it already has another announced, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, which will arrive on PC and PS5. Turned into a true viral phenomenon, the work of Steel Wood Studios stands out for how simple, original and terrifying it is. Far from more classic and action-focused proposals, Five Nights at Freedy’s consists of, broadly speaking, a janitor (or concierge …) checking at night the security cameras of stores, amusement parks, etc. At our fingertips we will have a control panel that turns on the lights when they leave, or that blocks certain doors if we see someone approaching. Our biggest enemy in the game are also animatronics like Freddy Fazbear, who will try to prevent us from reaching the next sunrise alive. Very simple mechanics, a pinch of strategy and many shocks, too many for our hearts, which tremble with each change of camera. The saga itself confirmed that it would have a movie in 2017 and even showed what its animatronics will be like, but it has remained in limbo since then and, seeing what it has seen, Nicolas Cage has overtaken them on the right.
