Is There a Doctor in the House!?
10 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Dr. Giggles is a movie which stars Larry Drake who plays a 42 year old psychopatic Doctor by the name of Doctor Evan Rendell. After escaping the mental hospital in Moorehigh he goes back to his old house. Finding his father's office he decides to take his dad's Doctor Suit and becomes a Doctor. When the people of Moorehigh get sick luckliy that Doctor Evan Rendell makes house calls to help them get well and fully healthy. Well At least to Doctor Evan Rendell point of view . Everbody else say's a little rhyme If Your From Moorehigh and You Get Sick, Fall On Your Knees and Pray You Die Quick!. This movie is a must see for any horror flim fan. Not only a horror but at some points of the movie this movie it has humours lines and jokes. You never seen this movie you are not a true horror fan. At some points of this movie is gross but it is worth the 1hr and 36 minutes of your time. You must see this movie if not done so already.
