Goofs

When the two officers first enter Dr. Giggles house, Officer Reitz grabs a piece of cloth that got snagged on the wall. When he reads it with the flashlight, it reads: awood. It is in big, blurry black letters. Later on in the film when Officer Reitz is at the police station looking up files on the computer, he pulls out the cloth and the letters are different. They still read 'awood', but are now clearer and there is more writing on the cloth as well. See more »

Is there a Doctor in the house? **1/2 out of 5
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not that bad of a schlock 90's slasher. A good way to 'kill' a couple of hours. Larry Drake of 'Darkman' fame, plays the title role and he's great. The rest of the cast features the usual bunch of teenagers. If you like gore and a ton of one liners, this film is for you. The kills are as creative as anything that used to be done in the Friday the 13th series. Some creative set pieces, including a unique chase through a fun house filled with mirrors. Some good creativity here and there amongst some not so great film-making. No horror masterpiece, just some good fun.

Watch this film and call me in the morning. Doctor's orders.
