LOST fans, get your freak on


After posting last night's blog entry, I thought that that was going to be it for scary images for one night but not so...things took a creepier turn.

J & I decided to partake in a little 'nightcap' only it wasn't a drink we were sharing but rather, another guilty pleasure - late night movies before bed. A favorite genre of mine is horror so we popped in the movie, Pin. It had been recommended to us by one of the writers of Rue Morgue (the definitive publication in horror) - first, because it starred Terry O'Quinn, aka 'Locke' in LOST (we've been on this Terry O'Quinn kick lately) and second, I suspect, because of how freakishly good it is. I was immediately hooked when I realized that there was ventriloquism involved and also, because of a naughty scene at the beginning which teetered on the absurd.

In a nutshell, the movie is about a young boy who develops an attachment to a transparent anatomical dummy which his father uses in his pediatric practice. As you can imagine, there are many possibilities for how this movie could have been presented with such a unique 'character' involved (and I'm not talking about Mr. O'Quinn, folks) but I won't spoil any of the fun. I did, however, want to share a little snippet from the movie that I thought you might enjoy (and to pique your curiosity a little further):

You guys are HILARIOUS! (Of course, I'm not surprised that it was one of the first movies. I'm sure it was right after you watched Trapped in the Closet. Heh!)
