The Dentist (1996)

Well this thing should write itself right? Everyone hates the dentist but what if they had a real reason to? Dr. Feinstone is angry when he finds out his Wife is having an affair and he begins take out his anger on his patients. It tries to be a horror comedy but it comes off as a bad made for tv type of movie. The effects are pretty good and if you like watching dental torture then I definitely think you should see this. I guess it just felt like bad gory melodrama and it didn't really strike me as interesting or even as a real movie the way it was filmed. Still for gore reasons it has a place in horror history but it definitely leaves something to be desired.

Availability:  On DVD
