A brawl broke out at an early screening of the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie, showing multiple moviegoers tussling in the front row of the theater.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is getting the Hollywood treatment, receiving a movie adaptation after reigning as an iconic horror game franchise for nearly a decade.

The FNAF movie brings the video games to life on the big screen, starring The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson and Hackers’ Matthew Lillard in a game of cat-and-mouse between haunted animatronic animal mascots and humans trying to survive the night shift.

The film, slated for release on October 26 in the US, has been met with seemingly mixed reviews from fans and critics alike — and it doesn’t look like one theater full of movie-goers had a good experience, at all.

Brawl breaks out at FNAF movie screening

In a video going viral on social media, one theater-goer caught an all-out fight that took place at their early screening of the horror flick in Acton, London.

The short clip shows a group of folks trading blows in the front row of the theater while the movie’s credits roll in the background. It looks like most of the fighters were filming, too, owing to everyone’s phones being out with the flash on.

As for what started the brawl? The person responsible for posting the clip says they dont actually know, but admitted that most of the audience was complaining about the flick.

“Everyone in the audience was just complaining and they started fighting at the end of the movie,” they wrote on Twitter/X. “Honestly, I have no idea what happened.”

This is far from the first time a fight has broken out during the opening weekend of a major film. Over the summer, two gals got into a row after a screening of the Barbie movie when a woman wouldn’t quiet down her kid during the showing. In another theater brouhaha, two women ruined The Little Mermaid when they got into a scrap.
