Storyline

The twisted tale of Kenneth, socially insecure technical writer who forms an obsessive relationship with "Nikki", an anatomically accurate silicone sex doll he orders over the Internet. Because of his experience with his new toy, Kenneth's life takes a turn for the better when his newfound romantic skills attract the attention of Lisa, a co-worker at his office. 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.

An Bleak, Original, Horror Film with Hints of Black Humour.
15 June 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An young, terminally shy young man by the name of Kenneth (Desmond Harrington) is working for a Major Computer Company. His life is about to change, when his boss (Rip Torn) offers him a big bonus if he could make the changes of a complicated computer system. Usually Kenneth works alone but his boss makes him work with an young attractive woman by the name of Lisa (Melissa Sagemiller). Then Kenneth's Co-Workers (Brad William Henke & John Cassini) shows a Picture of a Photo-Realistic Sex Doll.

Then Kenneth finds this Sex Doll fascinating. So he decides to order the Sex Doll by bringing out his shyness towards woman. Also Kenneth has a crush on his co-worker Lisa. Once he receives the Sex Doll-Nikki, Kenneth makes the doll dress like Lisa and almost having a realistic romantic relationship with the doll. The one morning, Kenneth is completely changed and he can't tell from reality. Thinking that Nikki is alive in his mind. Kenneth has to find out, what is best for him. Is it the sex doll-Nikki or His attractive co-worker.

Written and Directed by Robert Parigi made a clever darkly funny thriller. Which this is Parigi's first film. Harrington gives an outstanding performance as Kenneth. Sagemiller is Cute as his beautiful co-worker (Sex-Doll Nikki from the Film is actually model after her). Cult Star:Udo Kier also has a bit part as the landlord.

This extremely low budget production was filmed in 18 days. This film is extremely well directed. This was Originally a Direct to Video Project but it got briefly released in theaters and film festivals. The Film won different awards from Three Festivals including tree for the director:Parigi for Intertional Critics Award, Premiere Award and Best Original Screenplay at the Gérardmer Film Festival and Malaga Intertional Week of Fantastic Cinema. Hannington won for Best Actor at the Malaga Intertional Week of Fantastic Cinema. Film Composer:Nicolas Pike won the Elmer Bernstein award at the Woodstock Film Festival.

DVD has an sharp anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an great-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD has two commentary tracks from the Cast and the Director:Parigi. DVD also has Four Featurettes, which they are entertaining. This film will go on to be a Cult Favorite. The film is a bit familiar to Lucky McKee's Underrated Black Comedy-May. This is a very good and unusual film. Great music score by Nicolas Pike (Stephen King's Sleepwalkers). One of the film's Executive Producers is Edward R. Pressman (Conan:The Barbarian, The Crow, Wall Street). (****/*****).
