Horror Films of 1986 Series Episode 6

Now Playing Cannot Live…Without Your Donation!

By 1986 Wes Craven had been making horror films for more than a decade. After the instant success of his signature film A Nightmare on Elm Street he was able to write his own ticket for a follow-up film. Of all the scripts available to him, the movie he chose was Deadly Friend–a box office bomb and critical failure. How did this happen? And is this film’s bad reputation truly deserved? If you donate to help keep Now Playing on the air you can join Arnie, Stuart, Jakob, and BB to find out!

Scientific whiz-kid Paul moves to a new town to study artificial intelligence at the local university. One of Paul's high-tech inventions is a growly-voiced robot named BeeBee, and one of his new friends is the lovely girl next door, Samantha. When tragic events take both BeeBee and Samantha from him, the boy genius desperately sets out to restore the love he lost — and, like a modern-day Dr. Frankenstein, discovers too late that he has created a rampaging monster.
