Pin is another of those movies that not enough people are aware of. The trailer below really doesn’t do the movie justice. It was directed by Sandor Stern, who primarily did  TV work from the 70’s to the mid 90’s and even stars some folks who went on to actually have careers… like Terry O’Quinn and David Hewlett.

Released in 1988, the story revolves around two kids who got their moral compass and advice from a life size anatomical  dummy. Their father, a doctor, used ventriloquism to speak to them through the dummy to answer questions and give punishments etc. This makes a deep impression on one of the kids and as they grow up and the parents die he becomes a bit of a nutter that continues to seek advice and counsel from the dummy. Despite how that might sound, it’s definitely worth a look.
