Short Film: Don't Hug Me I'm Scared (2011)

Sesame Street from Hell. This is the first of a series of short created by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling. It and the others in the series seem to have been rather popular on-line — regular memes, so to say — but like normal we missed the fuss and only recently stumbled upon this and their other fabulous shorts.
To simply steal from Wikipedia: "Each episode is made to appear like a typical children's television program, consisting of singing and talking puppets similar to those of Sesame Street, but eventually takes a dark turn, usually involving gore. The videos parody children's television shows by ironically juxtaposing puppetry and musical numbers against psychedelic content and disturbing imagery."
Dunno how many episodes have been made to date, but this is the first one made and the first one we ever saw, so we want to share it with you.
Now let's all agree to never be creative again.

City of Rott (Pennsylvania, 2006)

If one is to believe the imdb, this relatively plotless animated zombie gore flick was made on an estimated budget of $5,550, to which we can only conjecture that the cash was split between the computer program used for the animation and a lot of coffee, 'cause it sure doesn't look like it was spent on much else. And, indeed, a look at the cast and credits of City of Rott reveals some dude named Frank Sudol as the writer and director and producer and editor and composer and all voices — truly a one-man effort. As such, for the first time in our life we finally understood what all those dumb-ass teachers meant when they would say "Well, I'll give you an A for effort, but...."
City of Rott is one of those movies that seems to divide its limited audience. We saw it as part of a small group of four, and two liked it and two hated it. We belong to the latter duo, though we tried hard to belong to the former — but the fact of the matter is that at 77 minutes in length, City of Rott is way, way, way, way  tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long for its slim plot, primitive technique, and hammered-in thematic message. We weren't just relieved when the flick ended, we were downright happy.
In the filmic world of Sudol's City of Rott, mankind has fallen victim to worms from outer space that invade our bodies and change us into unthinking undead with an unquenchable appetite for innards and flesh. But as is made obvious by the posters and banners and billboards and other advertisements seen in the background throughout the movie, City of Rott is, somewhere at its core, a criticism of conformism and the one-of-the-herd mentality of modern man in contemporary society wrapped in a slim storyline about and anchored by the elderly man Fred Figiero and his walker. Fred, one of the few remaining living people in the city of Rott, is in search of a new pair of loafers, and as he wanders through the city in search of new shoes he crosses paths with a limited amount of other survivors — none who survive all that long — and hordes of hungry zombies, most of which he bloodily obliterates with his talkative walker.
Fred is very much a nutcase, and he holds lively discussions and arguments at various times with his walker, one of his shoes, and himself, but for the most part he is also an effective zombie killer lost in a world with no future: it is basically simply a matter of time before he, like everyone else, either falls victim to the zombies or the worms — and conforms. (Sudol takes his criticism of mankind's lack of individuality a step further by adding the aspect that in the end, even the individual is part of the masses: Fred's craziness — or his individuality — is caused by a second kind of parasitic alien worm, one that simply makes you crazy, so in the end he is basically one of the masses as well. It would seem the Sudol views true individuality as impossible — a point of view we wouldn't argue against.)
But the "intellectual" theme aside, City of Rott is a flawed movie. It's animation style, though a far cry from the cut-paper simplicity of, say, South Park — a series (1997-present) and film (1999 / trailer) that City of Rott easily calls to mind — is executed with far less aplomb or skill than even the earliest episodes of that never-ending series. Sudol's primitivist style is indeed obviously intentionally "artless", and is also perhaps the best thing about the movie, but nevertheless the animation technique often slides too far into simply being badly executed: figures flicker or walk backwards, the backgrounds sometimes go out of focus for a few seconds, occasional objects float out of place across the screen (the latter might be intentional, on occasion). A little more polish wouldn't have hurt.
Likewise, the movie is simply too long for its slim story. Sudol pads the movie with excessive and not particularly funny dialogue and never-ending scenes of carnage, and both eventually become predictable and boring. Particularly the long scenes of Fred killing zombies become yawners, despite all the animated gore: more than once the viewer feels like a fifth wheel on a car, like a person watching over the shoulder of a gamer playing a one-person game in which the gamer has the fun of destroying thousands of zombies while the viewer has nothing to do but watch and twiddle their thumbs. Boring!
Lastly, the other characters and overall narrative of City of Rott are pretty much all over the place and never really connect. In regards to the secondary and tertiary human survivors, the result is that with the possible exception of the underused sexy nurse, none truly seem integrated into the story and most come across as added padding — as does the entire final act of the movie after Fred wanders out to a farm. City of Rott would have been better-served with either a better scriptwriter or as a short film.
Oh, yeah: while the music doesn't exactly suck donkey dick, it does now and then at least lick baby donkey dick.
So, final verdict: were it not the only animated feature-length zombie we know of, we would simply dismiss it as hardly imperative viewing. As it is, City of Rott is probably of above normal interest for zombie-film completionists — and thus, in the end, as flawed as it is, we give it an A for effort....

Trailers of Promise – Films We Haven't Seen: The Giant Claw (1957)

"The Giant Claw is every bit as unrepentantly bizarre as any Japanese or Korean creature film, and in exactly the same characteristic way. It is, so far as I’ve seen, the only true American kaiju."
1000 Misspent Hours

AKA The Mark of the Claw. A classic "bad film" high on our list of films to see — and as it easy to get online, we plan to see it soon. Director Fred F. Frears's short career — he died at the age of 44 (7 July 1913-30 November 1957) — was spent entirely at Columbia, where he was a regular collaborator with the legendary producer Sam Katzman (7 July 1901-4 August 1973), the man behind many a trash classic and not-so-classic, as well as one or two real classics, such as Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956 / trailer), which Frears also directed and featured special effects by the great Ray Harryhausen. Harryhausen was originally intended to do the effects for The Great Claw, also, but was replaced by some cheap model makers in Mexico City who supplied the legendary marionette that makes the movie what it is.
The story of The Giant Claw (1957), written by Samuel Newman (Invisible Invaders [1959 / trailer]) and Paul Gangelin (The Mad Ghoul [1943 / full movie] and The Boogie Man Will Get You [1942 / full movie]), is as follows: "Engineer Mitch McAfee (Jeff Morrow) is conducting a test flight of radar equipment for the Air Force in Alaska when he reports that his plane has been passed by something as big as a flying battleship. This is disbelieved back at base but he persists with his claim. Soon after, he is proven right as air traffic is attacked amid further reports of a giant flying bird. The Air Force attempts to shoot the bird down but it proves impervious to any type of attack. Scientists then realise that it is an alien creature made of antimatter, which is causing it to be invisible to radar and capable of projecting a shield to protect itself from any attack." (From: The Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review)
The Great Mara Corday
The babe of the film, "Sally Caldwell", is played by the exotically beautiful cult actress Mara Corday (born Marilyn Joan Watts on 3 January 1930), the Playmate of the October 1958 issue of Playboy (34-24-35, D cup) and an extremely popular cheesecake model of her day. Her most famous movie is undoubtedly 1955's Tarantula (trailer), and she can also be found in the not quite as entertaining "bad movie" The Black Scorpion (1957 / trailer).

R.I.P.: Wesley Earl "Wes" Craven, Part II (1978-1986)

2 August 1939 — 30 August 2015

What follows is Part II of a look at some the projects he was involved in — actually and/or presumably. TV series are ignored.

Go here for Part I (1970-77).

Stranger in Our House
(1978, dir. Wes Craven)
Aka Summer of Fear, Stranger in Our House is based on the teen novel Summer of Fear by Lois Duncan, who also wrote the novel behind I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997 / trailer).
Wes Craven's first television movie, like all his TV movies, is generally not viewed fondly by those who have seen it — as is the case at Classic Horror, which couldn't stop thinking of cabbage while watching the movie and says "Summer of Fear [...] is one of those times when even the master fails". (The master failed often, actually.)
The plot, according to Cult Reviews: "When Julia Trent's (Lee Purcell, also seen somewhere in The Witching [1972]) parents are killed in an accident, she comes to live with her aunt Leslie Bryant (Carol Lawrence) and uncle Tom (Jeremy Slate). At first daughter Rachel (Linda Blair of Hell Night [1981]) accepts Julia as a new friend while her older brother Peter (Jeff East) lusts after Julia and her younger brother Bobby (James Jarnigan) doesn't seem to notice. When Rachel's horse hates Julia and Julia steals Rachel's boyfriend Mike Gallagher (Jeff McCracken) and her best friend Carolyn Baker (Fran Drescher), Rachel starts to suspect that her cousin is more than just a bitch…."
The Bloody Pit of Horror is of the opinion that "At the time, director Wes Craven was best known for the gritty, violent shockers [...], so this milder made-for-TV effort marked both a change of pace for him as well as a (more-or-less) successful step toward mainstream acceptance. On the other hand, actress Linda Blair [...] was just ending her reign as teen queen of the controversial tele-movie. Prior to this, she'd played a teenage alcoholic, a kidnapped illiterate teen, a sickly teen awaiting a kidney transplant aboard a doomed aircraft, a institutionalized juvenile delinquent who gets pinned down and raped with a broom handle and other roles that make what goes down in this horror flick look a little tame by comparison. So I'd say this one probably helped Craven's career but really didn't do a whole lot for Blair's. Either way, within the limitations of the TV movie, it's really not a bad little effort."
Stranger in Our House was subsequently released theatrically in Europe under the title of its source novel, Summer of Fear, which it then retained for its video release.

 Summer of Fear:

The Evolution of Snuff
(1978, dir. Andrzej Kostenko)
Aka Confessions of a Blue Movie Star and Snuff; not to be confused with Michael Findlay's (1938 – 16 May 1977) legendary exploiter from 1976 (trailer) that started the whole scandal and legend, Snuff — "A film that could only be made in South America, where life is CHEAP!"
The imdb lists Craven as the cinematographer of this mockumentary, but they have it wrong: his only link to this flick is the inclusion of previously unseen outtakes — presented as a "real" snuff scene — from Craven's masterful horror debut, The Last House on the Left (1972).
Scenes from
The Last House on the Left
presented as real snuff scenes:
BFI explains the movie's supposed agenda: "[The movie] sets out to prove that the work of sex film actors constitutes irresponsible exploitation of human beings, taking the real life example of Claudia Fielers, a young actress who committed suicide in Munich." In all truth, the film bathes too deeply in the subject it supposedly frowns upon and also often comes across so ridiculous and ironic that it is obvious that filmmakers were less interested in an agenda than making a disguised exploitation movie. And as such, the movie, as J4HI rightly says, is "recommended for exploitation and sexploitation lovers alike." 
More from
The Evolution of Snuff:
Claudia Fielers (21 May 1946 – 20 February 1975), the young actress and suicide by poison featured in Snuff who seems to have killed herself following an argument with the director Robert Furch, had bit parts in a variety of fun German sleaze, including numerous Schoolgirl Report films, Erwin C. Dietrich's Die Mädchenhändler / White Slavers (1972), Dietrich's She-Devils of the S.S. (1973), and Joseph W. Sarno's Der Fluch der schwarzen Schwestern / The Devil's Plaything (1973 / scene).

She-Devils of the S.S.:

Deadly Blessings
(1981, writ & dir. Wes Craven)
Set in Pennsylvania, shot in Texas. We saw this movie back when it first came out and could never understand why it got as panned as it did, as we found it really entertaining — the only thing that sucked about it was the final scene of the incubus bursting up through the floorboards, a totally retarded and out-of-place final shock of the kind so de rigueur of the era. The young Sharon Stone — despite her famous spider-eating scene in what is basically both her first credited role and role of any importance — hardly made an impression on us, and had someone said "She'll be big one day" to us, we would have laughed at them. (In theory, one could say that Craven discovered Stone, much like he did Johnny Depp three years later.)
For that, we totally loved the lead actress, Maren Jenson, who is 100% total babe-a-luscious; regrettably, she left the film business soon after due to illness. Another plus to the movie is the typically over-the-top, scenery-chewing Ernest Borgnine as the leader of the Hittite community in which the film is set; the Hittites of the film, who "make the Amish look like swingers", naturally don't exist in real life but are modeled after the real-life Amish and Hutterite.
Time has been kind to the movie, and nowadays it even enjoys some popularity as one of Craven's better films. Final Girl, however, is of a mixed mind, saying many things but most importantly: "It's kind of a seven-layer dip of a movie: all these different flavors competing with each other but trying to work together, turning into a big mess that sits in your stomach like a gelatinous lump of regret. Mind you, the regret comes later; while you're eating it, your eyes focus on some distant, imaginary point and you find yourself saying a little too loudly, 'I don't know what's happening to me and I'm not sure if I entirely like it, but I might and so I'll just keep going.' Yes, in this way Deadly Blessing is exactly like a seven-layer dip. [...] But then...the last ten minutes. I'm not going to give away anything here, because...the last ten minutes of this film should not be given away. Let me just say that it's jaw-dropping. It is women punching, shooting, flying around due to punches and/or gunshots, and making crazy faces. It is a big pile of total what-the-fuckery, and it completely redeems all that came before. And just when you think it is over, it is not. And then your jaw — still dropped! — will say 'fuck this' and throw itself out your window. It's amazing." (Stacey obviously likes the ending we so hate.)
Cult Movies has a more literal plot description of the film they call "a bizarre, creepily effective tale": "The story takes place in a farming community and centers on a young woman named Martha (Maren Hensen), who has married a member of the Hittites (Jeff East), a cult sect who live nearby and are run by the unflappable Patriarchal figure of Isaiah Schmidt (Borgnine). Isaiah has turned his back on his son due to his belief that Martha is an Incubus in legion with the Devil. When Martha's husband is mysteriously killed one night by his own tractor, her two female friends come to stay with her and console her over her loss. [...] When the two ladies arrive at Martha's house, things start going from bad to worse, with locals being killed off by an unknown assailant and Isaiah insisting that Martha is responsible for the death of one of the Hittites. Meanwhile some of the other locals are hiding secrets of their own. Deadly Blessing is a consistently intriguing horror mystery which showcases director Wes Craven's skills to fine effect [...]".

Kent State
(1981, dir. James Goldstone)
Who knows the what, when, where, why, or how of this TV movie, but Wes Craven was one of the producers. "A dramatization of the incident at the Kent State campus in 1970, where Ohio National Guardsmen shot four students and wounded nine others, trying to control a student protest." [BFI]
Director Goldstone (8 June 1931 – 5 November 1999) was the man behind the second pilot of the original Star Trek series (1966-69), Where No Man Has Gone Before, which was then later broadcast as the third episode (22 Sept. 1966), when the first pilot, The Cage (1965), failed to impress NBC.

(1982, writ & dir. Wes Craven)
Click the title above to go to our typically verbose review of the movie, which we found flawed but rather enjoyable. Seven years later, bad guy Dr. Anton Arcane (Louis Jourdan) and Swampy (Dick Durock) returned for the far more trashy The Return of Swamp Thing (trailer), directed by Jim Wynorski.


The Hills Have Eyes, Part II
(1984, writ. & dir. Wes Craven)
This "sequel" is one of the greatest cinematic atrocities ever committed on film, and can hardly be called a movie: it is a totally non-redeemable example of a total lack of respect not only for the viewing public but people in general. We watched it and got so angry, so furious, that we promptly threw the VHS away and consciously decided to not review it and, instead, to believe it doesn't exist. (Something you can't do in a career review.) The Hills Have Eyes, Part II isn't even fun as a bad movie — although, in all truth, we did have a good and hearty laugh when the dog had its own flashback to the original The Hills Have Eyes. It is claimed that Craven made the film because he was in need of money, something that the movie truly reflects. We've also heard-tell that he later claimed to regret having made it, something we also find believable — no one could be proud of being involved in a smegma-dripping micro-penis like this one.
Ninja Dixon, which calls the flick "one of the dumbest sequels produced" and says "it's like director/writer Craven just didn't give a shit [about] what was going on", nevertheless confesses to enjoying it. He points out the best things about the movie: "Everything in this movie is SO stupid. It's hard to even imagine how stupid it is if you haven't seen it. From the legendary 'dog-having-a-flashback'-scene to one of the female characters suddenly taking an outdoor shower because 'she can't miss a chance like this', and this is in the middle of the night when something fishy obviously is happening around them, her friends disappearing etc. I also need to mention that the final girl is blind, but actually walks around and escapes the family over and over again like she actually can see very, very good!"
The plot? Some survivors of the first film go back the location of the first film with some other new fodder to ride dirt bikes and run into the surviving cannibals of the first film (and a few new ones) and everyone has a lot of flashbacks and some people die. Avoid this one like you would Donald Trump's unwashed anus.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
(1984, writ & dir. Wes Craven)

"Whatever you do... don't fall asleep."

Odd how the cookie crumbles: the same year that Craven makes and releases The Hills Have Eyes Part II, one of the worst films ever made, he also makes and releases one of the true classics of modern horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Inspired by news reports about "Asian Death Syndrome", basically a form of Brugada Syndrome, Craven came up with one of the iconic characters of horror, Freddy, and created this masterpiece.
Aside from creating a bona fide classic, Craven could actually claim to be the one to have discovered Johnny Depp, who made his screen debut in the movie. (Truth be told, Craven could probably also claim to having made Robert Englund's career, too, for although he had been around for a long time, he only became a name after this movie.) Although it has little to do with the movie, we must admit here that after it came out, we occasionally dreamt of a three-way with Depp and the true star of the movie, Heather Langenkamp — believe us, it was never a nightmare.
A further inspiration to the movie —
Gary Wright's 1976 hit, Dream Weaver*:
* Recognize the synth riff that opens the song?
Wikipedia offers a concise plot description of this "instant success": "Set in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohio, the plot revolves around several teenagers who are stalked and killed in their dreams (and thus killed in reality) by Freddy Krueger. The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago." The great script and effective direction is ably supported by a game cast that includes the great John Saxon and Ronny Blakely as two of the parents keeping the dark secret.
A Nightmare on Elm Street remains a film, like such classics as Frankenstein (1931 / trailer) or The Haunting (1963 / trailer) or Night of the Living Dead (1968 / trailer), that is required viewing of anyone that claims to be a horror movie fan.

Invitation to Hell
(1984, dir. Wes Craven)
Craven's second TV film, written by Richard Rothstein, whose other films of note include Death Valley (1982 / trailer), Human Experiments (1979 / trailer), the western Shoot the Sun Down (1978 / trailer), the underappreciated TV movie Bates Motel (1987 / trailer) and the flawed but entertaining Universal Soldier (1992 / trailer) — and, damn! Did van Damme ever have a muscular bubble butt in that last flick!
Though nominated for a lesser Emmy ("Outstanding Art Direction"), few people who have seen Invitation to Hell have anything nice to say about it. In the opinion of Cult Reviews, for example, "Wes should be ashamed of himself [for having made this movie]." Here at A Wasted Life, however, we personally we find the movie wonderfully stupid and entertainingly cheesy.
Cover version of the theme to
Invitation to Hell:
Camp Blood, one of the few who has anything nice to say about the TV movie, knows the facts: "This [...] has absolutely everything from white-hot tract houses to evil children to laser-shooting space suits to computers to demonic possession to late-seventies corporate angst to Susan Lucci in chandelier earrings as the devil incarnate, who happens to work at a country club. A surprisingly lucid and well-constructed parable about selling out to, well — just about anything (greed, lust, corporate America), Invitation to Hell is surprisingly well-told for a story that is so aggressively weird and composed of such disparate genre elements (horror, sci-fi, family drama, corporate thriller, satire). Craven's hand is certainly visible at the helm; as with his later work, the fantastic is planted so firmly in a banal suburban setting that it's both shocking and surprisingly fitting (much like A Nightmare on Elm Street). Lucci is absolutely riotous as alpha-bitch Jessica Jones; the fact that the devil would take the form of a slutty membership director at a barren country club is simply brilliant in its inanity, and she plays the part so straight it's impossible to tell if she was in on the joke or not. Building a very effective story on a simple Stepford-like premise of 'belonging', the film culminates in a special effects extravaganza of monumentally trashy proportions (much of which involves Lucci's makeup)."
Susan Lucci's
Invitation to Hell:
The plot, when reduced to its skimpiest form: "Matt Winslow (Robert Urich, 19 December 1946 — 16 April 2002, of Killdozer [1974 / trailer]), wife (Joanna Cassidy of The Night Child (1975 / trailer) and Blade Runner [1982 / trailer]) and family move to a town named Steaming Springs to start a new life, where the devil temps the worldly at the local country club. Luckily, Matt has a spacesuit."

(1985, dir. Wes Craven)
We saw this one, and we were not amused. Click the title above to read our typically verbose review from 2007, which ends with the following statement: "A truly awful film with no redeeming features, Chiller won't do much more than leave you pissed-off for having wasted your time. Indeed, seldom is there a movie that improves with the inclusion of commercials, but Chiller stands out as one such production."
Maynard's Horror Movie Diary has the basic plot and a similar opinion: "Chiller is a weird and underwhelming made-for-TV thriller about a cryogenetically frozen body that comes back to life as soulless and callous killer. The basic storyline is pretty intriguing and the first 20 minutes are eerie and chilling, especially the opening sequence, but due to Wes Craven's extremely poor direction and the lengthy script of J.D. Feigelson, the movie lacks tension and thrills, and is loaded with tedious and tiresome scenes, including one of the lamest climaxes in Craven's filmography."
J.D. Feigelson, as "Jake Fowler", also scripted the cheapo, regional horror trash classic Horror High (1974), a far more entertaining movie than Chiller.

Horror High (1974):

(1985, dir. Jack Sholder)
Craven actually had little to do with this movie, other than having created the title character and the core concept of dying in your dreams, the latter of which saw many liberties taken during the course of the movie. It was a hit, but was generally reviled at the time of its release. We ourselves saw in a grindhouse on Broadway in downtown LA, and we weren't thrilled, but over the years we've developed a fondness for it — as one can tell by our 2009 review of the movie. (Click the title above to go the review.)
Craven was actually approached to do Part II but he turned it down due to a variety of reasons, so the project went to Jack Sholder, who three years earlier had made the still underappreciated horror, Alone in the Dark (1982 / trailer), which, in all truth, is a better movie than this one.

 Freddy's Revenge:

Deadly Friend
(1986, dir. Wes Craven)
Based on the science fiction novel Friend by Diana Henstell, the screenplay was written by Bruce Joel Rubin, who went on to write one of the worst films of all time, Ghost (1990), which we forgive him for since he followed it up with that great mindfuck of a film, Jacob's Ladder (1990 / trailer).
We admit to watching about a half hour of Deadly Friend on VHS one evening — and popping it out of the player for something better (don't remember what it was we watched instead, but it was better). One of Craven's more problematic productions — literally: the studio more or less forced him to make a film he didn't want to make from a film that he had made like he had wanted to make. Deadly Friend, made while Craven was in the midst of his I-don't-want-to-be-just-a-horror-movie-director phase, was intended by the director to be more of a sci-fi relationship dramatic thriller along the lines of John Carpenter's dull Starman (1984 / trailer), but, damn it! The movie studio wanted a "Craven movie", with blood and gore and horror, and that is what they made sure they got. The movie's ending is particularly hated, but as Bruce Joel Rubin has famously said, "That robot coming out of girl's head belongs solely to Mark Canton, and you don't tell the [then] president of Warner Bros. that his idea stinks!"
Needless to say, the flick flopped and is not considered one of Craven's successful projects — but They Shoot Actors, Don't They is not one of the nay-sayers, and considers the movie "one of the more enjoyable Wes Craven movies", saying that some of the reasons the film is good are because "BB the robot talks like a retarded Jawa, Kristie Swanson wears blue eye shadow around her eyes to show that she's resurrected, and it has a wonderfully ridiculous ending."
The film's best death scene:
The plot as supplied by Richard Scheib at the Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review: "Teen genius Paul Conway (Matthew Labyorteaux) and his divorced mother (Anne Twomey) move into a new neighborhood so that Paul can teach computer science at the local polytechnic while also studying for his medical degree. Paul befriends and falls for Samantha Pringle (Kristy Swanson of Highway to Hell [1992] and The Phantom [1996]), the girl next door. He is upset when Dee-Dee, the beloved robot he has built, is blasted to pieces with a shotgun by crazy old neighbour Elvira Parker (Anne Ramsey, 1 September 1929 — 11 August 1988) during a Halloween prank. When Samantha's father (Richard Marcus of Tremors [1990]) catches her and Paul kissing, he brutally beats Samantha, sending her falling down a set of stairs and leaving her in a coma. After the medics turn the life support machines off, Paul comes up with a crazy idea to save Samantha by stealing her body, implanting Dee-Dee's computer chip in her brain and using it to restore her to life."
