But when the doll's jealous personality invades his consciousness, Kenneth becomes trapped in a perverse triangle, torn between the dominating, silicone Nikki and the flesh-and-blood Lisa. Written by
Love object is an above average horror thriller and although I'm quite sure it's not destined to become a horror classic. It does fall into the catagory with some of the new impressive horror classics such as May, Session 9, etc. Sexy Desmond Harrington of Wrong Turn fame stars as a young man whom decides to order a life like sex doll named Nikki. After getting a crush on a fellow co-worker played by the usually horrid Mellisa Sagemiller of Soul Survivors taking her performance skills a step up and becoming a real actress. All is fine and dandy as he practices out on the love doll what he plans to do with Sagemiller. But things go horrifically wrong when the doll begins to show it's jealous side supposedly. Or at least he feels that way and it wants to lash out at the young woman. Harrington does a fine job stretching his acting chops as you completely identify and feel for his charachter while being equally appaled by his actions at the same time. The film takes it's concept with a twisted humourous realism that left people laughing for the first half and than cringing in a bsolute fear as the film settled into it's unpredictable and disturbing final act. Kudos to all involved with this long dormant progect. The director does a fine job executing his concepts and directing the film suspensefully. However in the end it needed a bit of fine tuning and although the body count and blood letting is low I can't help that it showed a little too much and things changed a bit too drasticlaly too fast to make it totally believable. All in all theres no way to give the film more praise than to say that it makes it a hard case to fall for this 'love object'. although the film is definatly memorable and thought provoking, it's those kinds of thoughts I'd rather have not eneter my mind.
