Rotten: More proof that the early nineties were horror's low-point.

Larry Drake, Holly Marie Combs, Cliff DeYoung The psychopathic son of a mass-murdering doctor, escapes from his mental institution to seek revenge on the town where his father was caught. The giggling doctor kills his victims with a surgical theme. His goal being to give one of the townfolk a heart transplant. I was young when I first saw this movie, even then it was more of a dark comedy slasher to me. My Lil sis who I made watch it with me begs to differ. It scared her really bad. I loved every minute of it, and she screamed and shielded her eyes through most of it. Definitely a favorite of mine growing up. Although after having my youngest sister watch this movie and Dolly Dearest in the same night got me grounded for a month. =) My sister wouldn't play with any of her dolls for weeks. I'm a great older sister..=) Anyways, it's a fun slasher, and isn't to be taken very seriously. Love to see it again. My sister, not so much.. LOL..
