This week on the show we chat about 1991’s Drop Dead Fred, in which a young woman (Phoebe Cates) has a complete mental breakdown and begins hallucinating that her childhood imaginary best friend, the titular character, has returned.

To delve into the rich cinematic tapestry that is Drop Dead Fred, we’re joined by former Rewatchability co-host David Stein, as well as our friend Alexandra West whose blog Scare Tactic you can find here and whose podcast The Faculty of Horror you can find here or on iTunes.
