Quick Synopsis: The schizophrenic Leon (David Hewlett) only has one friend, "Pin," the life-sized, anatomically correct mannequin who is used alternately as a medical dummy, a sex doll and an imaginary friend to those around him.
Why it's worth your time: The little-seen Canadian cult film mixes the kinky underpinnings of "Psycho" with the dead-eyed ventriloquist dummies of such other underrated horror films as "Magic" (1978) and "Dead of Night" (1945). Featuring a pre-"Lost" Terry O'Quinn, "Pin" starts with a slow burn before exploding into a fiery, over-the-top finale, but is at its best when exploring the deteriorating mind of its protagonist as he interacts with sister Ursula (Cynthia Preston) and his eventual alter ego, Pin.
