Dr. Giggles is about as sick and twisted as commercial Hollywood movies get.
It attempts some gallows humor but is largely imitative, shamelessly ripping off every slasher film that went before it.
Dopey, absurd fun...
The numbing familiarity of everything in the film just makes the cartoonish bits look ridiculous.
more one liners than schwarzenegger could dream off
Exposes the darker side of Benny from L.A. Law.
More proof that the early nineties were horror's low-point.
Larry Drake was born to play a slasher villain!
Good potential with the crazy doctor, but it turns into just another slasher movie. The cop breaking up the party is the best scene.
Amusingly bad horror flick
The slasher stuff isn't half bad, but you have to suffer through comedy material that feels like glass in your brain.
A template for how to make a bad horror film.
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..
When I saw this as a kid, boy was I scared out of my wits! lol I would like to watch it again someday. I'll give it 3 stars for scaring me.
Apart from the awesomely creepy laughter, this film's nothing special.
