New York Times - 10/11/1986
"...A witty ghoul story....Stylish and sardonic enough to offer horror fans some knowing laughs and a pleasant relief from shrieking."
Variety - 10/15/1986
"...Enough gore, suspense and requisite number of shocks to keep most hearts pounding through to the closing credits..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/14/1986
"...Craven remains a savvy storyteller -- and he jolts us with a couple of hideous frights....There are plenty of shocks..."
A lonely teenage genius has only two friends in the world, a robot named Bee Bee and his neighbor Samantha. When they are both involved in an accident, he attempts to save them by pushing technology beyond its mortal limits into a horrible new realm.
In this unusual tale of the dead returning to the world of the living, a teenaged girl is killed by her abusive father. Her grief-stricken friend implants his robot's brain into her body. This proves unscientificly sound as the undead girl begins murdering people, and the junior inventor has to stop her.
