Chester Turner's notorious, shot-on-VHS underground classic!

"Whatever you have heard about the film is pretty much dead on accurate. Shot with a VHS camcorder. Check. Casio keyboard soundtrack. Check. Puppet having his way with a woman and then turning her into an insatiable sex hungry madwoman. Double check. So low budget and so out of this world...that you can't help but shake your head in disbelief and smile. Smile? Laugh, too, at the pure absurdity of it all." -

Helen, a God fearing and good Christian woman is surrounded by a world obsessed with sex while she still believes sex should only occur between a married couple, no matter what her desires tell her. After stopping by a strange store, Helen finds herself drawn to an unusual doll that supposedly has the ability to make a person’s desires come true. When Helen takes the doll home, she finds out that there is truth to that promise and there is a price that comes with it.
