Deadly Friend (1986)
Director: Wes Craven
Main Stars: Matthew Labyorteaux, Kristy Swanson, Michael Sharrett
Storyline: A young man implants his best friends a robot named BeeBee in his best friend’s body
Review (Spoils): Young Paul (Matthew Labyorteaux) is a nerd and created an intelligent robot named BeeBee. When his sweet looking young friend Samantha dies at the hands of her abusive father he takes BB to bring her back to life. This leads to bad things as BeeBee over takes her body and she starts to wreck havoc upon the town.
The film takes a look first at child abuse which again is a hard topic but a well deserved one to discuss. But on the horror end of the film we have some creepy but beautiful Kristy Swanson, some head explosions from a basketball throw, neck snaps, some burning, neck crushing and some minor blood.
Rating: I remember this film as it had 80s idol babe Kristy Swanson in it plus the creepy but after awhile annoying BeeBee voice. This is not one of Wes Craven better films so it is skip able but if you want a 80s horror flashback it is worth a watch. Plus we have Kristy Swanson!
