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.

Much Love!
8 December 2004 | by ghoulieguruSee all my reviews

This movie goes into a little visited horror neighborhood: the realm of the creepy living mannequin. Up to this point, the best examples of this type of thriller would be Woody from "Fear" and "Pin" but Robert Parigi manages to deliver a more complex story than either of those films.

This creepy flick has a wonderfully depraved sensibility and seems to be marching to the tune of Roman Polanski's "Repulsion". Acting is solid throughout, and even Rip Torn seems restrained from his normal cartoonish antics. Rather than going for jump scares, this movie goes for a slow build of dread and suspense. There are a couple of good cringes in the movie, and it's definitely worth a watch.
