Plot:
Enjoy being really scared? Have we got a pal for you. Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Red Eye) directs "a witty ghoul story" (Caryn James, The New York Times) that combines artificial intelligence with all-too-genuine horror. Lonely teenage genius Paul (Matthew Laborteaux), a specialist in brain research, has two best friends: his remarkable robot BB and the beautiful girl next door (Kristy Swanson). When tragedy strikes both his friends, he desperately tries to save them both 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. Your blood will run cold...if it runs at all...after meeting this Deadly Friend.

My Thoughts:
This is one I watched several times when I was a teen... and was thrilled to get in the Twisted Terror Collection boxset. This is the second time I watched it since getting it on DVD.  I enjoyed every minute of it. I believe anyone that seen this movie will agree with me when I say that the best kill scene had to be the basketball scene. If you never seen this movie I suggest checking it out. I don't believe you will be sorry. I just wish there would have been more extras on the disc for this one... all you get is the Theatrical trailer.

My Thoughts:

Watching this brought back some memories as I had sat down and watched this with my father years ago as a young boy. My dad is still a huge John Wayne fan and I've been fortunate enough to replace most of his old VHS tapes with dvds for his collection.

This movie was done in 1948, before Wayne became 'The Duke' and really came into his own. While he was the headliner of this movie, his acting was almost tentative, lacking the confidence and swagger he would acquire later when he knew he was the bonafide western movie star. That would happen in '56 when he did The Searchers which would cement his legacy.

It was a good movie watching it the second time around although the take on the story of the three wise men didn't quite fit as much John Ford would have liked you think it did.

Nowhere close to being one of my favorite John Wayne movies but still solid.

Another one of my favorite episodes. This one is just plain hilarious. It is loaded with laughs. Mark Hamill was a trip as The Trickster. I especially had to laugh at The Flash trying to run on a floor full of marbles.
