Matthew Labyorteaux (Albert from LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE) portrays teenaged genius Paul, who has constructed an artificially intelligent robot named BB. He and his mother move into a new house. He soon meets Sam, "the girl-next-door" (Kristy Swanson). She's being abused by her alcoholic father. There are some town bullies who wreck the robot but he has the computer chip for its personality. When Sam is pushed down the stairs by her drunk father she's rushed to the hospital and the doctors do brain surgery but to no avail. Paul gets the idea of sneaking in and implanting the chip into her brain, which he does with the help of a friend. She comes back to life but is very robot-like. Not wanting anyone to know what they've done he sneaks her out of the hospital and takes her home, first hiding her in a shed, then up in the attic. He wants her to be how she was but she obviously has a lot of anger, as she kills her father and then explodes in the head of a mean old lady with a basketball. The police eventually find out and Paul tries to help Sam-but she's shot down. The last scene is him sneaking into the morgue and she comes alive again, skin sloughing off, revealing a human/robot hybrid creature underneath. It makes no sense whatsoever and seems like a tagged on "CARRIE" ending.
This is the weakest Wes Craven movie, an After-School Special gone awry. The actors are mediocre, the special effects just okay.
