  1. Boy makes robot. Boy meets girl. They fall in love. Robot dies. Girl dies. Boy steals her body from the hospital and puts the robot microchip in her brain. Girl goes on a killing spree. I personally love this movie, but it is one Wes Craven often cited as his worst film. It starts out as an innocent Short Circuit/Gremlins/ET rip-off, a boy and his ‘pet’ story, that springboards into a Bride of Frankenstein-esque gory mess. It’s a great example of how easily producers, studio execs, and test audiences can ruin a movie (not to say they were working on high art to begin with). Craven wanted a departure from horror fame and set out to craft a PG love story with some dark fantasy elements and was forced instead to “be that spooky Nightmare guy.” The trailer cuts out any mention of nor even shows a single frame of the titular ‘friend’ BB the robot. The added gore scenes are so over the top and laughable that it’s hard not to shake your head and ask yourself, “what the hell am I watching.” I think you guys would have a lot of fun with this one. I feel bad ruining this, because if you aren’t expecting it you’d never see it coming, but the most infamous scene is this murder-by-basketball: Fun fact: the screenwriter would go on to win Oscar gold for Ghost.
  2. Just mentioning this movie made everyone in the room laugh.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    Wes Craven's original Nightmare on Elm Street has the potency and brevity of a classic Grimm fairy tale. Every single sequel bastardised it in some way or another (even the decent ones) but the first film was a genuine landmark. Even the scenes set in broad daylight are unsettling, and Freddy (in his original incarnation only) is a devious, ingenious creation. Also: the soundtrack doesn't get any of the kudos awarded to John Carpenter's Halloween score, but it's in the same league. I think it's a masterpiece and would love to hear it discussed.
  4. I'm watching this on Amazon and had to check if anyone else has seen this. I searched but came up empty, so I don't know if it deserves to be a new topic or if it even deserves to be watched.
