The main character is the detective from the TV series Dexter. The plotline was very strange for the first part of the movie and then it started coming together later in the movie and the ending was brilliant! A must watch for horror fans!

Better than okay

"Fans of horror will recognize the basic premise, ala Psycho and Magic. Basically, loner's imagination blurs the line between reality and fantasy. Here, the fantasy is sexual.
Without going into detail, the movie is worth a look-see just to see how the writer links everything together. On the flip side, some elements don't link as well. This is the comedy and horror elements. At times, the viewer isn't sure which the movie is intended to be. Stick with it. It will all make sense later.
Desmond Harrington does a great job of creating a figure that you want to root for, then feel deathly afraid of.
I would recommend this movie to horror aficionados. I think they would truly appreciate this film."

"The box may throw you off as to what this is really all about. This is a disturbing movie about love and control or lack of. Kenneth is mental but you feel sorry for the dude as you throws away his life for Nikki. Lisa is the other love interest in this film and makes the movie come to life. You have got to see this twisted little story."
SICK AND TWISTED . . . AND EXCEPTIONAL

"The only unfortunate thing about this film was the timing of its release. It (as well as another 'lost treasure' of horror -- MAY) were both overshadowed by the promotional hyperbole of the sub-par CABIN FEVER. Hopefully, this review will assist in getting this film the status of cult classic it deserves.
The plot breaks down very simply to an introverted guy who falls for his new pretty assistant. He is so atrophied with shyness that he feebly rejects HER offers of going out. So what's this poor, misuderstood sap to do . . .?
Empty his bank account to order a life-like sex doll detailed to resemble his assistant, of course!
However, the real fun starts when he finally does begin to develop a relationship with the young woman . . . And the love doll jealously begins voicing her resentments . . .
I have no intention of spoiling the various twists and turns that occur after this. So, hopefully, the basic set-up will convince more adventurous moviephiles (Horror fans or otherwise) to take a chance on this little gem.
All I can say is "The English Patient" sequence is, at once, insane, hilarious and more than worth the price of a rental. Guys, you will never feel the same watching a chick flick on the couch with your sweetie (plastic or otherwise). "
Dont get between this man and his sex doll

"Desmond Harrington (Ghost Ship, Wrong Turn) plays Kenneth Winslow, a "regular joe" who's kind of a loner but starts to fall for cute Lisa, played by the cute Melissa Sagemiller (Suoul Survivors). So, Kenneth orders a sex doll from the internet named Nikki. On the website you can make the doll look like anything you want, so Kenneth makes the doll look like Lisa. The 2 start to see each other more and work with each other more and Kenneth's Nikki doll, as creepy and eery as it seems becomes jealous of him hanging out with Lisa. Lisa finds out about Kenneth's little pleasure doll and has a restraining order put on him and he is also fired. So, Kenneth kidnaps Lisa because this sex doll who he chopped up into tiny bits is calling him and telling him what to do. Soon, Kenneth kills his stoner neighbor, played by the always cool Udo Kier (Blade, Bard Wire). The end of this movie is a twister and boosts it up a star along with Desmon Harrington's creepy performance and Melissa Sagemiller's victim role. Rip Torn (Rolling Kansas, Men In Black 1 and 2) is a hoot as Harrington's boss. Some parts are really creepy but it doesnt help much from a unexciting story. Not a bad idea but doesnt cut out what its supposed to except a twist of an ending."
Very interesting comedy horror flick

"I really liked this flick after I watched it. It had a mixture of comedy, drama and horror all mixed into one. The story was a solid story and the acting in the flick was excellent. All of the actors seemed comfortable with their parts. I recommend this movie to anyone that likes a different kind of horror flick."
