Tongue In Cheek Gore
As one of the last of the 1980s style splatter-horrors, it does take a special place in the genre but sadly is not the best on offer. Gratuitous gore are par for the course and to be expected and better is to be found elsewhere, but when appreciated as a very satirical view of the whole genre it rounded off it isn't that bad a film. When taken as a serious horror, it will fall down badly however, with very few scares, gore that simply cannot be believed, and few 'inventive' deaths considering the main protagonist is a wannabe surgeon!

Other offerings such as 'The Dentist' benefit from a more serious plot and more threatening central character (not to mention tapping a general fear in most people!), but if Dr.Giggles is seen for what it is; a very black comedy with OTT gore to match, it's worth a look. If you liked the humour and gore-splat ludicrousness of 'Braindead', you may well like this.
