TRAUMAFESSIONS :: Irving Wallace on Deadly Friend

throw mamma a basketball!

One film that traumatized me for life was DEADLY FRIEND. I saw this film when I was around 6 when my babysitter used to work at a video store and would rent all the horror movies for me to watch. She got me DEADLY FRIEND one day and the scene where Samantha’s having a dream and her dad comes in and starts cussing at her and going crazy like he’s gonna rape her or something, and then she takes a flower vase and sticks it in his eye and he starts laughing and screaming while blood is streaming out of the vase! Of course I love this film now, and it’s one of my faves, but it still kinda freaks me out when I see this scene. Also some other good scenes in the film would be when Elvira Parker (ANNE RAMSEY from THE GOONIES) gets her head blown off by a basketball that Sam threw; when Sam kills her dad in the cellar by burning him; and the ultra close up shots of brain surgery.

    I love BB! if you buy the soundtrack to the film, it has all of BB’s sounds that he makes on it.

    Unlikely robots do tend to stretch the limits of my suspension of disbelief! Others include the ROCKY 4 robot and Ricky Straton’s impossible and short lived sidekick on SILVER SPOONS, but any movie where ANNE RAMSEY gets decapitated by a basketball is O.K. in my book!
