Pin 1988 VHS
Tagline: A Plastic Nightmare
Plot Synopsis: In this low-budget descendant of Psycho, Pin 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.
Rated R  110mins

Planet Earth  2006 The Complete BBC Series WS  DVD 5 Disc
The 11-part series : From Pole to Pole, Mountains, Fresh Water, Caves, Deserts, Ice Worlds, Great Plains, Jungles, Shallow Seas, Seasonal Forests, Ocean Deep
Original U.K. broadcast version narrated by David Attenborough, including 90 minutes not shown on the Discovery Channel
110 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage
Planet Earth is quite simply the greatest nature/wildlife series ever produced. Following the similarly monumental achievement of The Blue Planet: Seas of Life, this astonishing 11-part BBC series is brilliantly narrated by Sir David Attenborough and sensibly organized so that each 50-minute episode covers a specific geographical region and/or wildlife habitat (mountains, caves, deserts, shallow seas, seasonal forests, etc.) until the entire planet has been magnificently represented by the most astonishing sights and sounds you'll ever experience from the comforts of home. The premiere episode, "From Pole to Pole," serves as a primer for things to come, placing the entire series in proper context and giving a general overview of what to expect from each individual episode. Without being overtly political, the series maintains a consistent and subtle emphasis on the urgent need for ongoing conservation, best illustrated by the plight of polar bears whose very behavior is changing (to accommodate life-threatening changes in their fast-melting habitat) in the wake of global warming--a phenomenon that this series appropriately presents as scientific fact. With this harsh reality as subtext, the series proceeds to accentuate the positive, delivering a seemingly endless variety of natural wonders, from the spectacular mating displays of New Guinea's various birds of paradise to a rare encounter with Siberia's nearly-extinct Amur Leopards, of which only 30 remain in the wild.

He takes her back to his place, where pregnant wife Emmy, thick-as-a-brick son Bo, and available-since-she-was-twelve daughter Sarah, do their best to give her a "family" welcome. While Helen's immediate danger is somewhat delayed, her newfound shelter begins showing some signs of danger as well.
