Now and as a curiosity, those responsible have shared how they managed to reduce the recommended minimum age to attend the cinema and enjoy its bloodthirsty terror.
In an interview granted in the middle Inversethe director of the film Five nights at Freddy’sEmma Tammi, revealed the methods used in production so that the minimum recommended age was lower than what might be expected. “We did our best to maintain the PG-13 rating (PG-12 would be our equivalent) while exploring the plot effectively. This meant that death scenes had to be approached in a specific way. While it’s entertaining to show explicit violence and graphic details in slasher horror films, it’s also fascinating to explore creative ways to convey these moments in shocking ways. without resorting to visual brutality. In some cases, we chose to use shadows, silhouettes and sound design to create the intense atmosphere without showing explicit gore,” the filmmaker stressed.
A night at the pizzeria
