Pin

This is one weird movie. I don't remember what originally led me to throw it on the ol' Netflix queue, but I'm kind of glad I did. While it had some typically 80s awful background music, fluffy hair, etc, it's a genuinely creepy story.

The basic premise is that these super white bread kids grow up in a super spic 'n' span household with their super repressed parents. The dad uses an anatomical dummy of his to speak to the kids about difficult subjects. The girl eventually catches on that he's using ventriloquism, but the boy... he's nuts. He thinks Pin (the dummy) is a real, living being.

One thing leads to another and their parents die in a car crash.... but crazy boy? He's not ready to give Pin up. This isn't a gory film, though there is a little violence (not explicitly shown). Great when you're in the mood for a "whoah, that's fucked up" factor without any gore.
