4.0 out of 5 stars Something different for the genre December 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Now this little gem isn't your average "slasher" flick. It is a demented love story between a man and a corpse that will make you go WTF?throughout the entire film. Now if you are expecting lots of poorly executed deaths and your typical blonde bimbo with big boobs running around screaming before she meets her demise then you might as well skip this one. Howard is a Morgue worker who falls in love with the flower girl Christine. He has tried to talk to Christine on several occasions but she acts like he doesn't exist. Howard follows her occasionaly and takes pictures of her,in typical stalker fashion. Then one day,as Howard is working in the Morgue,new fresh meat is brought in. It's not just any corpse though,it belongs to Christine who died in a car accident. Howard then loses his mind,over struck with grief,the demented Howard steals Christines still fresh corpse from her grave. He takes her home and tries to hide her from the snooping land lady who hounds Howard for rent and gets suspicious of the strong odor emanating from Howards dumpy apartment. As time passes,Christines corpse slowly decomposes and maggots and rats soon appear eating whats left of her barely recognizable corpse,but this doesn't stop howard from loving her. That is what this film basically is,a man who loves a woman even though shes dead and rotting on his couch. Don't expect much gore here besides the various stages of decomposing from the maggot ridden corpse. The body count is low but that doesn't stop this from being an enjoyable film. The original plot and likable characters make this film a keeper,and it's been released on DVD so don't just rent it,buy it. This film has a similar feel to Joe D'amato's "Beyond The Darkness" minus the fingernail ripping,burning bodies, and acid baths. Take my word for it,you will like this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lost gem given the good ole DVD treatment.... September 2, 2005
Howard is an introverted medical student, studying pathology, who's in love with cute-as-a-cup-cake Christine. Trouble is that Christine doesn't know, or even care, who Howard is and before our lovelorn protagonist can make the "big" move his object of desire is dead. Howard finds out the devastating news while keeping the "red eye" at the morgue and is ordered to assist in performing the autopsy. From this point the tone of "Living Doll," and Howard's mental capabilities, take a discouraging turn and along with Howie the viewer tumbles and fumbles forever downwards into a pit of stark raving madness and mayhem.

Things seem pretty hopeless for poor Howard. His best friend can't help him, his boss is a conniving slave driver and his landlady is constantly sticking her nose in his business. Howard's only comfort is knowing he's taken Christine's corpse back to his rathole apartment and she patiently awaits him. The fact his paramour's body is stinking and rotting hardly deters Howard from carrying on with their love life, and so he does. Howard talks with Christine and dines with Christine. Howard even marries Christine and summarily consummates the union as all good newlyweds should.

The more this craziness continues the more vexing things become for Howard and the film races to a shock and surprise ending. A surprise ending that will have fans of the genre tickled pink and wondering why they'd never heard of this little gem called "Living Doll." One can only wonder what would have happened had Lucky McKee's "May" met our new friend Howie the morgue attendant.

To no one's surprise the exploitative details of "Living Doll" are glowingly obvious and painted all about; nudity, partying, gore, etc., are slathered, without pretense, across the screen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Living Doll January 8, 2011
Howard is hopelessly in love with the flower girl upstairs, but she hardly even notices that he exists. When she ends up toe-tagged on one of his slabs in the morgue, Howard decides to take his work home with him... George Dugdale and Peter Mackenzie Litten present this nauseating tale of necrophilia with a morbid sense of humor. Like Buttgereit's NEKROMANTIK, the LIVING DOLL is much more than a simple gore spectacle. It is a look into the deteriorating mind of a man obsessed, where reality and fantasy are blurred as Howard imagines an idyllic life that he shares with Christine. Howard's LIVING DOLL is brought to life through a series of incredible special effects created by HELLRAISER's Paul Catling, whose oozing designs are frighteningly realistic and lend a great deal of credibility to the film along with the motionless Katie Orgill in the role of Christine. Litten and Dugdale attempt to even out their repulsive display with several lighter moments in the script and dialog, but the awkward performances by Mark Jax and Gary Martin can be extremely silly at times. LIVING DOLL is sure to shock and disgust, but most of its strength lies in watching Howard's spiraling decent into madness.
