Dead Doll is a very mediocre black comedy/horror feature that has the displeasure of following such movies as Love Object and May, both of which I highly recommend.

If I wanted to write a twenty-eight word review for once in my life, that’d be it for Dead Doll. Unless you’re a fanatical fan of movies about possessive, stationary figures, you really should just skip Dead Doll.

You’ve essentially got a maniacal man who decides that if his indignant girlfriend won’t stay with him, he’ll force her to. After killing her off screen, he preserves her body (in Lucite I assume), thus making his own sex doll. But it doesn’t stop there. In his mind, the doll is talking, walking, and breathing, and he becomes obsessed with her beauty. The twist in the story is that just about everyone else who encounter his preserved girlfriend become obsessed as well, going as far as to murder to get their hands on her. The film traces the doll’s ownership all the way to the bitter end.

There’s a twenty-minute period in Dead Doll that is absolutely fantastic. The jokes hit, the acting is great, and the scenarios are simply fun. It’s the other fifty minutes that brings the whole thing down. It’s just tepid, and at this point in the game, feels entirely unnecessary.

The film as a whole is actually well put together, but the script is weak and simply neither funny nor thrilling for most of its running time.

DVD: While the DVD is sans a commentary track, there’s still a worthwhile bit or two. There’s eight minutes of deleted scenes, all of which probably should’ve been kept in the movie to combat its embarresing seventy-two minutes runtime. Then there’s the original poster art, storyboards, some still shots, and the film’s trailer. All in all, not a bad DVD when you consider we’re dealing with a bad movie.
