Dr. Giggles ★ 1992 (R)

Drake plays the psycho-genius Dr. Giggles, an escaped mental patient who sets out to avenge the death of his psycho-genius father (dementia runs in the family). He returns to his family home to procure the necessary medical instruments, most notably a hypodermic needle, and starts killing people—on screen with the tools and in the audience with remarkably stupid one-liners. Opening scenes are especially mired in gore. 96m/C VHS, DVD . Larry Drake, Holly Marie Combs, Glenn Quinn, Keith Diamond, Cliff DeYoung; D: Manny Coto; W: Manny Coto, Graeme Whifler; C: Rob Draper; M: Brian May.
