Very much like "The Dentist" it tries to prey upon fears already instilled in us. We have the sun of a mass murdering doctor who escapes the institution to seek revenge. There is a bit of a doctor theme here but they could have done so much more with this idea as it is a good one. The stupid title and idea that he giggles when he's going really looney is well it suits the film but it's not that good. The comedy elements again take away any sort of tension that could have been built here. It's just another silly time passer which barely makes a passing grade.
