  • LOVE OBJECT is the deeply disturbing story of a man and his anatomically correct sex doll. Kenneth (Desmond Harrington) is the star tech writer at a soulless Los Angeles firm. He is robotic and repressed until a co-worker shows him a picture of Nikki, a $10,000 sex doll. It's love at first sight for poor Kenneth, and soon he is sharing sex, conversation, and even waltzes with this inanimate object of his dreams. At the same time a new face enters his life in the form of a cute coworker named Lisa (Melissa Sagemiller). The two female figures become entwined in Kenneth's mind and he begins to dress Nikki like Lisa and vice versa. As his real-life romance blossoms, the spirit of Nikki starts to come alive, stalking him in nightmares and dominating him via S&M. Kenneth tries to get rid of her, but learns it's not so easy. That's only the start of the lurid insanity at play in this well-crafted little indie. By the blood-spattered climax it gets almost unbearably intense and unnerving, but before that there's some genuinely nice chemistry between the two leads. Both actors handle the material with enough respect and care that it transcends its Hitchcockian psycho-shocker roots to become genuinely touching and tragic. Rip Torn plays Kenneth's boss and Eurosleaze icon Udo Kier has a fun part as a depraved next-door neighbor.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Parigi -- who's clearly made a close study of Alfred Hitchcock's obsessions and has watched a fair share of intelligent horror perched between cheekiness and Grand Guignol -- succeeds nicely."
