Kenneth is a socially awkward office worker who has little experience with romance. He buys a life-like sex doll in an attempt to rid him of his loneliness, but soon finds there may be a dark side to 'Nikki'.
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.Written by
My skepticism was expecting a gender reversal of Child's Play.
After seeing the flick it struck me as somewhere near the realm of Secretary, ReAnimator & American Psycho. It throws a humorous light on professional / emotional duality & the creepy perversions generated by repressed emotions.
Shot in 18 days & under a million $ this film is an excellent example of how a quality story, well executed, can easily be more entertaining than a star studded formulaic attempt at a blockbuster for a fraction of the cost. Film studios could make & market hundreds of films like this for the cost of a single Waterworld or Matrix Sequel. Introducing a fresh crowd of talent to the public & a higher grade of story to bored audiences.
A visually tasteful & cleverly executed film.
