Format: VHS Tape
I first saw this film at least 10 years ago....it stuck in my mind so much that I started to search, endlessly, the TV listings until it came on again. I HAD to record it!!! It is NOT the run of the mill horror flick like "Halloween", "Friday the 13th", or "Nightmare on Elm Street". "Pin" keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering where each vital scene is going to lead you next! It has a "Hitchcock" subtleness about it. If you are a horror fan of the "TRUE" sense, and not out for "blood and guts" this is YOUR kind of movie! This type of horror film has not occured since "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane", "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte", or "Straight Jacket". The acting is believable and the direction was done with superb technique...a must see!!

The idea that a father would communicate with his children through an inanimate doll in order to educate them about sex is bizarre, and yet it works in this film. One wonders whether this was based on actual cases, because it seems so plausible. This horror film is so much more than a two-dimensional portrayal of psychosis. It tries to examine the process by which someone could go completely insane, and succeeds. It is entertaining in the way that Psycho is entertaining, while treating the subject of schizophrenia respectfully. The dvd is widescreen, and the film is definitely worth a look for horror fans. Recommended.

Most all of the so-called horror movies made today are just simple, formulatic nonsense that offer only jolts but nothing withstanding. Whatever happened to the genuinely scary like Psycho or The Exorcist? What we're most afraid of is not monsters or faceless madmen, but elements of our own psyche. This film is one not perfect, but it does succeed in striking a chord with those who desire a REAL reason to stay up at night.

David Hewlitt is fantastic as Leon, a schizophrenic boy with an unnatural obsession with medical dummy Pin. The movie doesn't go soft or stereotypical and deserves more attention than the likes of pointless trash like Urban Legends or Valentine. If you wish to be truly mind-...... by a good psychological thriller, you owe it to yourself to see this flick.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lara "Lex" Kinast on Oct. 29 2011
Format: DVD
I love this film (but lent it out and haven't had it returned so I may have to buy another copy). A very young David Hewlett plays Leon, a troubled- if not downright psychotic- teenage boy. After the car crash death of his parents Leon and his younger sister Ursula find themselves being cared for by a pesky aunt. An anatomical dummy named Pin (short for Pinnochio) who Leon formed an intense, unnatural friendship with in early childhood, quickly gets rid of the unwanted aunt. From then on, formerly shy and bullied Leon finds new-found freedom and confidence with Pin by his side. Excellent psychological tale of madness and the influence of cold (to put it mildly) clinical "parenting" (Leon and Ursula's formative years give me the creeps). Oh yeah, Dad (before his untimely demise) is played by Terry O Quinn. Great little show. Not gory or over the top in the blood and guts or special effects department, but very enjoyable. I haven't really found another movie quite like it, although I have been looking...

This movie was nothing like I expected. I don't know exactly what I was expecting.... but whatever it was ... it wasn't what I got. The cover of the movie is quite deceptive. On the back of the movie when they say that pin is a harmless deaf mute ... I still kind of thought he was alive or something, but he is just a dummy. I felt bad for the 2 children in the movie ... anyone living under the conditions in their parents house would probably end up going insane or atleast having some severe emotional or psychological issues. So throughout the movie it was hard for me to not feel sorry for Leon (I love David Hewlett - CUBE is soooo much better though). It isn't Leon's fault that his mom was an obsessive compulsive cleaning freak and his dad was a weird and strict, uncaring person. So what if that leads him to believe that his fathers medical dummy is his friend? Pin was much nicer than his parents. So I can't really blame him. A child who has to live under those conditions is bound to have some kind of way to cope with all that is going on. Pin was there to help him. Perhaps there could have been better ways to help Leon than to convince him to kill people (although I cannot place the blame on poor Pin... he is just an innocent by-stander ... especially in the scene where the nurse does bad things to him!! Naughty naughty!) but the idea of Pin being real was all in Leon's head... I really wish someone had gotten him help... especially his sister who seemed very oblivious to what was going on and when she finally did figure out that Leon was mental ... she just went on with her little life and didn't bother to get him some treatment. All in all, I've seen better movies, of course. But I've also seen much worse.

Pin (short for Pinocchio) is an anatomical instruction dummy. Dad Terry O'Quinn uses the dummy to explain difficult questions to children Leon and Ursula. When Dad dies suddenly, Leon projects a personality to Pin to replace him. Ursula tries to begin a normal life, but Leon says Pin won't allow her to ruin her life by running off with boys. That plus a bunch of creepy set pieces is the story of Pin.
Leon's attempts to make Pin human are pretty creepy. The crux of the story is just how far Leon will go in order to make Pin a human. It's not wishing on a star, I can tell you that. This may all sound like a Chucky movie or a bad Tales From the Crypt episode, but Pin is eons ahead of them in terms of atmosphere. There are sometimes long, slow shots of the dummy where you swear you could see him move. Pretty eerie.
The DVD has an audio commentary by the director. The movie is now available in widescreen format for the first time so that is a plus.
Recommended.
