A Plastic Nightmare
A doctor has a lifelike, anatomically-correct medical dummy, with muscles and organs visible through its clear skin, named Pin (after Pinocchio). Via ventriloquism, Pin explains bodily functions in a way kids can relate to. When the over-strict doctor and his wife are killed in a car crash, his son (Leon) transfers his alter-ego into Pin, whom he always believed was alive. He starts using Pin as an excuse to over-protect his sister (Ursula) from admirers and deflect unwanted intrusions, even to the extent of committing murder.

I expected a gem from all the good reviews but it's pretty average. It's sometimes silly when it tries to be creepy and having a character that's weird and has mental issues doesn't make it psychologically rich. The characters have one or two sides. Not enough. It sometimes looks and sounds cheap. The kids dont care that the parents die and the sister isnt phased by a freak brother. Not the worse movie but there are much better.

Whoever rated this movie weak-sauce is an idiot. It's a total Horror Classic! It's nice and twisted. True horror!
