Deadly Friend

Film, Horror

Time Out says

Teenage boffin Paul has developed a robot, BB, that can think for itself but it still has a silly voice. It suddenly starts seeing red, but no matter - Elvira, a paranoid neighbour, blows it away. Samantha, though, is a nice neighbour, and Paul is off his rocker when her kooky father kills her. But love will find a way: Paul implants BB's brain into Samantha's. She jerks into action. She is set on revenge... Although the prevailing tone is comic, there is plenty of grue and gore; the heart stops several times. This may be Craven at his crummiest, but the resulting sick still ranks higher than anything his imitators can come up with.
