Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Strictly for horror buffs with an appetite for gratuitous gore and bloodshed, Dr. Giggles is appropriately titled, since the title character (played by Larry Drake, best known as Benny from TV's L.A. Law) is a psychotic killer who chuckles uncontrollably as he eviscerates his victims. Having escaped from a mental hospital, he returns to the town where he was raised to seek bloody revenge on those responsible for the death of his mad doctor father. His chosen payback method is a lot of unnecessary surgery. But then he takes pity on a teenaged girl who desperately needs a heart transplant. Of course, he's got plenty of involuntary donors! That should tell you enough to know if you'd actually want to watch this movie, which is actually worth a few laughs--or at least a few giggles--if you're into this kind of thing. Drake puts everything he's got into his performance, and you have to admire his effort in the service of a lost cause. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Coolest Horror Movie Ever! March 14 2004
Format:DVD
I found this horror movie to be very funny, gory, and kinda scary. The only reason I watched it was because it had Holly Marie Combs in it. I found it to be the best horror movie I had ever seen. And I have seen a lot of horror movies. The scene in the fun house was the only scene to scare me in any horror movie!

1.0 out of 5 stars Giggles like a Bitch Sept. 27 2011
By Sorpse
Format:DVD
man i definatly did not like this movie. This is also coming from a guy whose favorite genre of film would be the horror comedies, gory horror comedies that is. I didnt find anything really over the top gory, i definatly didnt find anything funny, and well i guess it did technically fall into the definition of horror. Like many reviewers before me have said, the one liners in this movie are absolutly horrible but the thing that really drew me away from this movie was his damn giggling. If ever a movie was deserving of a remake id probably vote for this one because something about a giggling psychotic doctor sounds like it could be creepy, but for some reason they missed every damn mark they could on this movie and he comes off as nothing but annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars No apple a day will keep this crazy doctor away June 15 2008
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Remember Larry Drake's Emmy Award-winning portrayal of "Benny," the mentally challenged office worker on L.A. Law? Well, a couple of years before he started winning the hearts of L.A. Law viewers, Larry Drake was busy removing the hearts of the residents of Moorehigh - while they were still alive, no less - as the infamous Dr. Giggles. Now let's just stop for a minute here and talk about this giggling thing. I think all of the maniacal giggling did this movie more harm than good, and I for one would never have released a film with this campy a title. How can you take this movie seriously with a title like Dr. Giggles? It might be different if this were a horror comedy, but it isn't - sure, there are elements of comedy strewn loosely about every so often, but I defy anyone to watch this movie without getting sick and tired of the one-liner overkill that plagues it. I don't have any complaints in the horror department, though, as Dr. Giggles turned out to be a pretty successful slasher film.

Young Evan Rendell always wanted to be a doctor, just like his father. That didn't change just because his father went mad and ended up killing several patients in a futile attempt to save his wife's life. Mrs. Rendell died, Dr. Rendell was killed by a mob, and young Evan disappeared, eventually ending up as a John Doe in a mental institution. As the movie opens, "Dr. Giggles" escapes, not before killing several staff members, and heads toward home to continue his father's work. The old Rendell house, abandoned all these years, gives him access to all the tools of the trade - not to mention a few that he comes up with on his own.
