Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Kenneth was in love from the minute he took Nikki out of her box. Anatomically correct, complete with instructions and 100% lifelike silicone, she was exactly as he had ordered. With his newfound love, Kenneth's once desolate and lonely life took a turn for the better and everyone noticed...including Lisa. But spending more time with Lisa meant spending less time with Nikki, and it wasn't long before Kenneth realized that Nikki was a doll with some evil intentions.

Product Description

This horror DVD film was seen at the Tribecca, Munich, San Sebastian Horror & Fantasy, Fantasia, and Philadelphia Film Festivals. Kenneth was in love from the minute he took Nikki out of her box. Anatomically correct, complete with instructions and 100%

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than okay February 17, 2007
Format:DVD
Fans of horror will recognize the basic premise, ala Psycho and Magic. Basically, loner's imagination blurs the line between reality and fantasy. Here, the fantasy is sexual.

Without going into detail, the movie is worth a look-see just to see how the writer links everything together. On the flip side, some elements don't link as well. This is the comedy and horror elements. At times, the viewer isn't sure which the movie is intended to be. Stick with it. It will all make sense later.

Desmond Harrington does a great job of creating a figure that you want to root for, then feel deathly afraid of.

I would recommend this movie to horror aficionados. I think they would truly appreciate this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honey your a doll. July 11, 2006
Format:DVD
The box may throw you off as to what this is really all about. This is a disturbing movie about love and control or lack of.

Kenneth is mental but you feel sorry for the dude as you throws away his life for Nikki. Lisa is the other love interest in this film and makes the movie come to life.

You have got to see this twisted little story.

4.0 out of 5 stars SICK AND TWISTED . . . AND EXCEPTIONAL August 28, 2005
Format:DVD
The only unfortunate thing about this film was the timing of its release. It (as well as another 'lost treasure' of horror -- MAY) were both overshadowed by the promotional hyperbole of the sub-par CABIN FEVER. Hopefully, this review will assist in getting this film the status of cult classic it deserves.

The plot breaks down very simply to an introverted guy who falls for his new pretty assistant. He is so atrophied with shyness that he feebly rejects HER offers of going out. So what's this poor, misuderstood sap to do . . .?

Empty his bank account to order a life-like sex doll detailed to resemble his assistant, of course!

However, the real fun starts when he finally does begin to develop a relationship with the young woman . . . And the love doll jealously begins voicing her resentments . . .

I have no intention of spoiling the various twists and turns that occur after this. So, hopefully, the basic set-up will convince more adventurous moviephiles (Horror fans or otherwise) to take a chance on this little gem.

All I can say is "The English Patient" sequence is, at once, insane, hilarious and more than worth the price of a rental. Guys, you will never feel the same watching a chick flick on the couch with your sweetie (plastic or otherwise).

2.0 out of 5 stars dont get between this man and his sex doll April 15, 2005
Format:DVD
Desmond Harrington (Ghost Ship, Wrong Turn) plays Kenneth Winslow, a "regular joe" who's kind of a loner but starts to fall for cute Lisa, played by the cute Melissa Sagemiller (Suoul Survivors). So, Kenneth orders a sex doll from the internet named Nikki. On the website you can make the doll look like anything you want, so Kenneth makes the doll look like Lisa. The 2 start to see each other more and work with each other more and Kenneth's Nikki doll, as creepy and eery as it seems becomes jealous of him hanging out with Lisa. Lisa finds out about Kenneth's little pleasure doll and has a restraining order put on him and he is also fired. So, Kenneth kidnaps Lisa because this sex doll who he chopped up into tiny bits is calling him and telling him what to do. Soon, Kenneth kills his stoner neighbor, played by the always cool Udo Kier (Blade, Bard Wire). The end of this movie is a twister and boosts it up a star along with Desmon Harrington's creepy performance and Melissa Sagemiller's victim role. Rip Torn (Rolling Kansas, Men In Black 1 and 2) is a hoot as Harrington's boss. Some parts are really creepy but it doesnt help much from a unexciting story. Not a bad idea but doesnt cut out what its supposed to except a twist of an ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, ugly, and funny as hell July 6, 2012
Format:DVD
<strong>Love Object</strong> (Robert Parigi, 2003)

Warning: <em>Love Object</em> is not at all the film you think it is.
Anti-warning: it's about a dozen times better.

Parigi, a prolific TV producer, took a single crack (to date) at doing the writer-director thing. The film made the rounds of festivals, where it was accepted and screened at both Cannes and Tribeca (both notoriously competitive), then got an extremely limited NYLA theatrical run in early 2004 before going to DVD. Critics split on the movie along, mostly, the predictable lines: the horror kids dug it and realized this is actually a really low-key flick, while the more mainstream critics savaged it. (Two notable exceptions: the movie garnered favorable reviews from the <em>LA Times</em> and <em>Chicago Tribune</em>.) Ebert credits the movie with/blames it for "grisly sadism"; what movie was he watching? Not this one.

Plot: Kenneth Winslow (<em>Dexter</em>'s Desmond Harrington) is a writer of technical manuals, a geek who spends his time at home eating takeout pizza when he's not being an exemplary employee much-beloved of his boss (the inimitable Rip Torn). All is well until Lisa Bellmer (<em>The Guardian</em>'s Melissa Sagemiller), a new temp, slightly klutzy, slightly frumpy, and preternaturally beautiful, enters the workplace. Kenneth is smitten, but has no clue how to approach the girl of his dreams. So instead of asking her out, after he comes upon an ad hocking life-size rubber dolls (think RealDoll in the real world, and remember this movie is a satire), he shells out the ten grand and has them model one on Lisa. After which things go back to normal...

5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved "May" you'll love this film.
Harrington gives a staggering performance in this intense, eerie, and extremely well-developed horror film in the vein of Lucky McKee's masterpiece "May".

If you've seen The Collector, then the ending isn't a spoiler - he lives to find another Love Object. Okay, but, well, meh.
