Friendship Is Deadly by mayorlight Friendship Is Deadly by mayorlight
Having recently rediscovered the 1986 movie Deadly Friend, I couldn't help but imagine an Equestria Girls re-telling of it!

Human Twilight = Paul
Spike = BB the Robot
Fluttershy = Samantha

For those who haven't seen the movie or read the original novel, here's the summary:
Paul moves to a new town with his mother and his robot BB.
Paul meets Samantha, the girl next door who lives with her abusive father.
BB is destroyed by a paranoid neighbor.
Samantha is accidentally killed by her father during a routine beating.
Paul transplants BB's AI into Samantha's brain to resurrect her.
Murder and mayhem ensue.

This piece is based on the moment in the movie where Sam/BB comes down from the attic into Paul's room and finds the photograph of them during happier times on his dresser.

That said neighbor was played by Anne Ramsey AKA Ma Fratelli was the icing on the cake!

Oh no! I've heard of that movie :XD: That's the one with the "death by basketball" scene, right? 

I must say, I'm oddly interested by the idea of a story with Fluttershy as a zombie/robot. :lol:

Indeed it is. Diana Henstell's original novel was a MUCH MORE tragic, heart wrenching story.

Yes. It can truly be deadly. I know it will not end well.

Yeah, that's definitely an 80s horror movie. Nice work on the interpretation of it in this pic.
