Deadly Friend Movie Review

Before she was Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kristy Swanson was, er, a robot. Deadly Friend has to be one of the guiltiest of all guilty pleasures, a Wes Craven-directed thriller about a new kid in town, who has invented a robot that would be considered sophisticated even today, but which has violent tendencies. Lest you think the little robot is going to start killing people, think again: The girl next door (Swanson) gets beat up and accidentally killed by her abusive dad, so our genius hero sneaks into the morgue and implants a robot chip into her head. Presto: zombie robot Kristy Swanson is up and at 'em and getting revenge. Best scene: Robo-Kristy hurls a basketball at a poor lady's head, causing it to explode. A basketball. Deadly friend, indeed.
