A new episode of The Arrow in the Head Show has just arrived online, and in this one hosts John “The Arrow” Fallon and Lance Vlcek are taking a look back at director Wes Craven’s troubled and compromised 1986 film Deadly Friend (watch it HERE). To find out what The Arrow and Lance think of the film, check out the video embedded above!
Based on the novel Friend by Diana Henstell, Deadly Friend was written by Bruce Joel Rubin and has the following synopsis: Lonely teenage genius Paul, a specialist in brain research, has two best friends: his remarkable robot and the beautiful girl next door. When tragedy strikes both of his friends, he desperately tries to save them by pushing technology beyond its mortal limits into a terrifying new realm. Like a modern-day Dr. Frankenstein, Paul discovers too late that he has created a rampaging monster!
Matthew Laborteaux, Kristy Swanson, Michael Sharrett, Anne Twomey, and Anne Ramsey star.
Here’s some information on The Arrow in the Head Show: We’re trying something a bit new here on Arrow In The Head. After many years behind the scenes, we’ve decided to take our sarcastic, booze-influenced style into the video age with The Arrow In The Head Show! Hosted by John Fallon aka The Arrow and Lance Vlcek, we will dig into not only the newest horror flicks hitting the big and small screens but also delve into the good, bad, and ugly of horror from the golden ages of the ’80s through the underrated 90s and maybe a bit beyond.
Something groovy and a tad rough around the edges, we are here to talk shop with a drink in hand, a bit of foul language, and a whole lot of heart.
The Deadly Friend episode of the show was Edited by Lance.
