News & Interviews for Deadly Friend
Critic Reviews for Deadly Friend
The closed ending is unconvincing and distorts the promising tone of the beginning. [Full Review in Spanish]
Its leading actress, a sixteen-year-old girl who debuted here (...) provokes embarrassment in each of her appearances to such a point that it completely alienates the viewer. [Full Review in Spanish]
The sad news, though, about this essentially silly and derivative horror film is that it's by Wes Craven, the master of the genre who gave us Last House on the Left and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
A wickedly fun fright fest from the master of horror
Audience Reviews for Deadly Friend
I'm sorry, I just can't hate something this cheesy, I don't have it in me. The stupid plot, the awful acting (Kristy Swanson's hands are hilarious) and everything laughable about it just adds to the charm for me.
This one that i categorize as my own kinda cheese! U know movies that are over the top cheesy but we love em anyways for some unknown reason? I'm pretty sure however that my main reason here is for Kristy Swanson!
Unbelivable, cheesy, tragic and fascinating! An electronics geek (Matthew Laborteaux from "Little House on the Prairie") tries to bring his deceased girlfriend (Kristy Swanson) back to life with parts from his robot project. The life-giving experiment turns her into a monstrous creation to be dealt with named "Bee-Bee". Gosh, this movie has a silly Frankenstein-esque premise, which delivers a cool 80's horror experience. Wes Craven actually directed this post-Elmstreet, so it deserves some attention.
