[Podcast] Watts Craven! DEADLY FRIEND (1986)

Powered by RedCircle

Join usssss as we close out our double bill of Techno Terrors from Wes Watts Craven with the truly bananas cult hit Deadly Friend (1986). Your horror hosts Kimmi and Jon have two wildly different takes on this disastrous production, but at least we can all agree that this (annoying) robot movie gave us one of Horror’s greatest exploding heads. Sure, it’s got a confused storyline that was made worse but studio notes, MPAA reshoots, and shoe-horned nightmare sequences but at its core Deadly Friend is a deranged riff on the classic Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and one hell of a weird effort from a true Master of Horror.
