Review Deadly Friend, directed by Wes Craven - best known for Nightmare on Elm Street - has much of Craven's positive attributes...The best material comes with the showpiece of the film, Paul's next door neighbor "Sam" (Kristy Swanson). Once she becomes the focus, Deadly Friend is often scary and it's occasionally gory. There could be more gore, I'm sure, in the opinions of some horror fans, but the gore scenes here, particularly the scene featuring the "old witch" of the neighborhood, are brilliant. Quality over quantity remains desirable...Craven also creates suspense through the use of something that must be kept a secret. The chance of discovery never moves far from the surface, and you feel for the character who needs to keep the secret. There is also a subtle campiness that is never far from the surface of Deadly Friend...This is an extremely well made film that many people will unfortunately find too unbelievable or just too silly to be able to enjoy it. Still, horror fans, and fans of Craven's work, at least, should check it out, and anyone else who thinks they'll not be too put off by the premise and the cute robot should give Deadly Friend a try.

John Fallon, Arrow in the Head ...a beautiful horror love story...Check it out for Kristy Swanson...
Variety ...enough gore, suspense and requisite number of shocks to keep most hearts pounding through to the closing credits.
