Critic Reviews for Love Object
The sort of clumsy undertaking that trips up everyone and everything in it.
What's missing is any sense of why such a handsome man is afraid of women. That makes the premise hard to swallow, especially since Harrington is too commanding to be a believable dweeb.
The movie reaches with increasing desperation toward humor and grisly sadism, and the mood is broken.
While some pedestrian camerawork and spotty acting from supporting players deflate Love Object, it has enough juice -- and a surprising twist -- to keep fans of the slow-burn horror genre enthralled.
Audience Reviews for Love Object
The film's structure and creepy plot slide along pretty well with the low-budget production but the execution is kind of clunky and dull.
More a mix of a thriller with a black comedy than a horror movie. It was surprisingly good, even though not all plot elements work and the acting is sometimes laughable (but somehow it worked well in the context of the story).
What does an office worker living a dull, routine life without friends or a woman do?? Orders one of the life-like silicone love dolls and models it after a female co-worker. More of a hilariously dark psychological thriller than straight-out horror, this is one interesting and deranged film that's unsettling, especially when the main character Kenneth begins to suspect his love-doll "Nikki" is becoming jealous. The addition of a manipulating sex doll always turns the fun level up in any film. Funny and gory.
