Adaptation of the popular indie horror game, Five Nights at Freddy’s – The Neverending Nightmare arrived in Brazilian cinemas. Almost two hours long, the film is marked by references to the extensive universe of the saga, so it’s worth asking yourself: is there a post-credits scene?
Sim, Five Nights at Freddy’s There is a post-credits scene! But, it’s worth pointing out, it’s not exactly a hook for a sequel but rather a joke involving a character from the games.
The film is already showing in theaters, but read below to understand the post-credits scene. Five Nights at Freddy’s!

The post-credits scene takes the opportunity to ease the tension with a little joke after the final battle. After the closing song, the film quickly returns to the taxi driver, who had previously taken the little girl Abby (Piper Rubio) and the animatronic Freddy Fazbear (actually Golden Freddy, for those in the know) back at the pizzeria.
In the excerpt, we see the taxi driver resting in his car when he is surprised by a doll with a frightening facial expression, causing the driver to scream in fear. The scare with the doll is a recurring joke throughout the film, and the scene as a whole is a reference to the games and the saga’s fandom.
In reality, it is a doll called JJ (ou Balloon Girl)which appears in Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 (2014). In the game, the character is not exactly one of the killer animatronics, but rather a easter egg which constantly appears in unexpected places to scare the player. The film’s recurring joke is precisely to replicate the feeling of finding her out of nowhere.
The taxi driver is a special appearance by one of the YouTubers who helped the game become a success. The character is played by CoryxKenshinwhose real name is Cory DeVante Williams. The North American became known for making videos playing horror games like Five Nights at Freddy’salways with comical reactions to the scares and tension of the games.
Thus, the post-credits scene serves as a nod to the franchise’s oldest fans, as well as a way to end the session on a fun note.
Five Nights at Freddy’s is already showing in Brazilian cinemas.
