Wes Craven once said this about reasons for re-shoots and adding gorier scenes in his original version of Deadly Friend; "We started off doing a picture that Warner Bros. indicated they wanted to do, a macabre love story with a twist. About five weeks into the shoot, they realized who i was and told me not to be inhibited by what they had told me in the past...So, in the last weeks of shooting i made up one little nightmare scene and put it into the film. It was the big hit of the screening. So, then, they came to me and said listen, what we need is more of that stuff. What we're doing is adding to the deaths of few people, a jump for the beginning, a new closing scene and two nightmares-that sort of Wes Craven touch." After negative reactions from preview audience who saw Craven's first cut of the movie and wanted more gorier film, it was re-edited and more gorier deaths and all other scenes which were re-shot were included, but these scenes only made movie to look like a mess of two different genres; family film and horror film. While new scenes were added, some others like more scenes between Paul and Samantha that would made movie more of a love story as originally intended were deleted, probably for pacing and length because it was decided that movie was gonna be released as fast-paced horror.
