Dr. Giggles is about as sick and twisted as commercial Hollywood movies get.

Georgia Straight

It attempts some gallows humor but is largely imitative, shamelessly ripping off every slasher film that went before it.

Audience Reviews for Dr. Giggles

Larry Drake, Holly Marie Combs, Cliff DeYoung

The psychopathic son of a mass-murdering doctor, escapes from his mental institution to seek revenge on the town where his father was caught. The giggling doctor kills his victims with a surgical theme. His goal being to give one of the townfolk a heart transplant.
I was young when I first saw this movie, even then it was more of a dark comedy slasher to me. My Lil sis who I made watch it with me begs to differ. It scared her really bad. I loved every minute of it, and she screamed and shielded her eyes through most of it. Definitely a favorite of mine growing up. Although after having my youngest sister watch this movie and Dolly Dearest in the same night got me grounded for a month. =) My sister wouldn't play with any of her dolls for weeks. I'm a great older sister..=)
Anyways, it's a fun slasher, and isn't to be taken very seriously. Love to see it again. My sister, not so much.. LOL..
