Patrick (Edward Coverdale), Lara (Lisa Vaccaro) and their daughter
Chloe (Annika Caylor) move back into his eccentric mother Joan's (Lisa
Vaccaro again) house, on one hand to give their relationship a fresh
start, on the other to help Joan turn the place into a hotel. But they are
not exactly greeted with open arms, as Joan dislikes Patrick, Joan's maid
Clarice (Katie Hellman) has the hots for Patrick and dislikes everyone
else. And then there's also some kind of secret Joan and Clarice are
trying to keep, which has to do with Joan's dead husband, whose skeleton
she still keeps in her bed. Before long they are also joined by Patrick's
niece Alexandra (Michael Leo Centi), whom Patrick has the hots for, and a
perverted clown named Georgie (Joshua Anderson), who's their first paying
guest but who seems to know more about Joan's secret than she cares for
and who wants to blackmail her. This soon gets too much for Joan and
Clarice, so Clarice fetches a cursed doll from a nearby crypt that's
possessed by some evil spirit and that Clarice thinks she can make do her
bidding. However, the doll, soon enough Chloe's favourite toy, has its own
mind who to kill and who not to kill ...
Ok, so My Deadly
Playmate might not be the perfect film - it was made on an obviously
low budget so concessions had to be made - but it's also loads of fun, a
fresh take on the old dark house genre, putting genre mainstays together
in a very amusing way, with the somewhat stilted acting only adding to the
playful atmosphere of the movie. And thanks to a very light-footed
directorial effort, this is sure to entertain.
