Is FNaF streaming? How to watch the new horror movie

The animatronics can get a little quirky at night. Here's how to watch Five Nights at Freddy's, the new horror movie based on the beloved video game series.


Is Five Nights at Freddy’s streaming? We’ve waited literal years to be invited into Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and now the release date is nearly upon us. With the original game developer Scott Cawthrone working with horror movie powerhouse Blumhouse, it’s fair to say that our expectations are high.

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie mainly adapts the first game in the series, which follows security guard Michael Schmidt as he tries to survive a night shift alone with murderous animatronics. As we explain in our FNaF movie review, it mostly does a brilliant job. And, the even better news is that you have plenty of choices over how you want to watch this video game movie. Just don’t watch it in the dark. Or alone. Or with William Afton.

Where can I watch the FNaF movie?

Five Nights at Freddy’s will get its wide theatrical release on October 27 and will begin streaming on Peacock simultaneously.

For fans in the UK, the film will be released theatrically a day earlier, on October 25, 2023. Either way, there will be plenty of time to meet Freddy Fazbear and his friends ahead of Halloween, and it’s perfectly timed if you’re looking for some genuine horror.


Is Five Nights at Freddy’s streaming?

Five Nights at Freddy’s will drop exclusively on Peacock on October 27, 2023.

The movie will be free to stream if you’re a paid subscriber of the streaming service. Both Peacock and Universal Pictures (FNaF’s distributor) are run by parent company NBCUniversal, so it makes sense that they’d want to keep their movies on their own platforms.


Is Five Nights at Freddy’s on Netflix?

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie is not on Netflix, nor do we expect it to arrive on the platform in the future.

Is Five Nights at Freddy’s on Disney Plus?

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie isn’t on Disney Plus, and we don’t expect it to be on there anytime soon, either.

Luckily, there are countless Disney Halloween movies that are perfect if you’re in the mood for a fright, like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Hocus Pocus.


Is Five Nights at Freddy’s on Prime Video?

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie will probably be available to buy or rent on Amazon Prime before the end of this year, but we don’t think it’ll be available as part of an Amazon Prime subscription.

Usually, theatrical releases get a digital release along with a physical media release a couple of months after being in theatres, so we’re betting the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie will get a digital release in this way.

Is Five Nights at Freddy’s on Blu-ray?

The Five Nights at Freddy’s movie isn’t available on DVD or Blu-Ray right now, but we expect it will be in the future.

With the games having such a huge and dedicated fanbase, we imagine a lot of them would be lining up to get a Blu-Ray of the movie, so for their sake, let’s hope the physical media release happens sooner rather than later!
