The following reviews were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is a “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the transformation and adaptation of tangible concepts into empirical games. This book covers franchise and public domain horror movies only. This rule ensures that each movie can be logically related and compared to another or grouped by similarity. Movies can therefore be classified, and sorted according to inherent properties.

Plot
Desmond Harrington customizes his sex doll in Love Object, which is just about the only thing you need to know to decide if this film is for you or not. You probably have a lot of questions right now, and most, if not all, will be answered. You’d be surprised how graphic this film gets. It doesn’t cheat on its premise either. The story unfolds organically, however twisted.
This is definitely one for the BDSM and fetish community. The sex doll concept is way ahead of its time, but I wouldn’t even call it science-fiction. Give the movie ten years and we’re there, having sex with robots and giving up porn as we know it. It takes someone socially inapt to fuck a silicone mannequin, though, and Harrington plays that person. I bought it.
This story is confined and doesn’t leave room for interpretation besides a few hallucinations Harrington is having. He’s probably crazy anyway. There is a handful of characters, here, and the acting is competent. The editing is a little choppy and innocent. The execution is interesting. This is one of the underdogs of its decade, and it deserves some attention.
