O.H.M.A.D. 2015 Day 9: Pin (1988)


As far as bizarre movies go, you can’t get much more bizarre than Pin.  Terry O’Quinn (The Stepfather, Lost) stars as Dr. Lincoln, a  physician, raising two children, Leon and Ursala, along with his neat freak wife whose child rearing techniques leave a lasting scar on their son.  Using ventriloquism, Dr. Lincoln uses his anatomical dummy Pin to educate his children.  He warns them never to talk to Pin alone.  Ursala figures out what her dad is up top, but Leon looks to Pin as an guardian angel type figure.  Dr. Lincoln uses Pin to explain to his children the birds and the bees, and Ursala figures out her fathers game.  Leon, not so much.  In their teenage years, the parents die in a car crash and Leon’s feelings for his sister grow out of control.
