please help me identify an 80's movie

I have no idea what is was called. All I remember is that there was a talking medical skeleton but you could see his organs and stuff. I think he would tell the doctor to do bad things. I think it was pretty gory and a little out there but all in all I remember it being a pretty good horror. Any ideas at to what it is?

Thanks

It kinds of sounds like Blood Diner, except instead of a doctor it was two dudes than ran a diner, and instead of a talking skeleton, it was a talking brain, eyes, and penis.

So, nothing like that at all.

I was also going to suggest PIN. It's a great forgotten horror film.


From IMDB: "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."

It also sounds a lot like The French Connection.

I think the OP would have mentioned if it was French movie. If you don't know anything about movies, please don't clutter up this thread.

Pin, Canadian, Anchor Bay put it out on DVD a few years ago, I think it may be out of print now.

Talking skeleton? I had no idea Keira Knightly was making movies back in the 1980's.
