Storyline

An old orphanage has just been rebuilt after it was mysteriously burned to the ground over a decade ago following accusations of child molestation and abuse by Martin, whose own father committed suicide out of shame. Needless to say he couldn't prove his innocence, suffered a psychotic breakdown which subsequently led to him systematically slaughter the other occupants, including the kids, particularly the accusers, before perishing in the blaze that followed. Now a group of med-students are brought in by a seemingly benevolent doctor turned pediatrician, Jerry who seeks to fix the place up as less an institution more of a foster home. One of the students is set on dwelling there at this current position, while the others are set on helping them settling in. But soon they'll discover that our current owner has been secretly disposed of by an intruder, who is still lurking close by. Jerry's (now ex) fiancée Connie, Barney (who said his farewell to Jerry moments before meeting his end) ... Written by suspicous

"Why do those dumb kids keep going back to Camp Crystal Lake-letting Jason hack and chop them?"
20 December 2001 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Evil Laugh" isn't a masterpiece,but it works as a cheesy slasher flick-and I mean REALLY cheesy slasher flick.There's some nudity and plenty of gore.I love especially the scene when one moron gets a machete through the groin.Oh,and there is this stupid sequence where someone has his head microwaved while the door is still open-yeah,right!!!The acting is completely awful,but overlook that and you have a cheesy,completely unscary,but funny as hell slasher.Watch it in pair with another cheesefest "Psycho Cop" and you'll have lots of fun.
