Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees were barely mobile, but the titular Pin outdoes them both. Sarah & Adam discuss repressed killers, creepy dolls, Terry O’Quinn, the surprise connections this film has to Canadian Heritage Minutes and Breaking Bad, and more when they pay a visit to everyone’s favourite anatomical doll. Pin: It’s a little bit Psycho, a little bit Magic, and a whole lot of disturbing.

Based on the novel of the same name by Andrew Neiderman.

The Stepfather, starring Terry O’Quinn.
O’Quinn returned for Stepfather 2: Make Room For Daddy. The less said about Stepfather 3 and the remake, the better.
Will Harris’ Random Roles is a great series of rapid-fire interviews with actors discussing a number of different actors. Here’s Terry O’Quinn’s RR (no PIN mention, sadly).
