The eponymous "Dr. Giggles" is played to perfection by the legendary character actor, Larry Drake. Drake won back-to-back Emmy awards in 1988 and 1989 for his character "Benny Stulwicz" on the show L.A. Law. Drake unfortunately passed away in 2016, succumbing to his battle against blood cancer.

This was a surprisingly entertaining B-type film with a lot of good lines by "Dr. Giggles" (Larry Drake). "Dr. Giggles" is a mad doctor who has this high-pitched giggle when he kills people, which is frequently.
It sounds hokey, and it is, but it's done with great tongue-in-cheek humor. Actually, that's what I think this is: a takeoff on grisly horror movies. Drake's Ines, mostly doctor clinches, are very funny and his face is strange enough so that he fits the part. The rest of the cast is Hollywood-typical teens.
This movie is well photographed, too and with nice color sand some good camera angles. Nothing outstanding but definitely a "sleeper," something much better than anticipated.
