Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)
My cohort Sebastian O’Brien and I have been on something of a 90’s kick as of late, revisiting a decade that generally gets maligned by horror fans. But the 90’s has some gems. Case in point, the pun-laden slasher flick Dr. Giggles — which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with our show!
Dr. Giggles himself, Larry Drake, will be in person for a Q&A!
As always, the screening will be at midnight @ The Cinefamily in Los Angeles.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
Dr. Giggles is a film that has it all — mirth, murder, medical puns — which makes it all the more perplexing that it wasn’t declared a cultural touchstone upon its release in 1992. Starring Emmy-winning Larry “L.A. Law” Drake in the tittering, titular role, Dr. Giggles is the quaint story of a small town doctor who just wants to see his patients well and rested…in the morgue! This gleeful and gory late entry in the slasher pantheon is both hilarious and at times shockingly grotesque — and is well-deserving of a clinical re-evaluation on this, the 20th anniversary of its release. So put on your best blood-soaked scrubs and grab your sharpest scapel, ’cause the doctor is in…SANE!
Check out our original trailer!

I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles. And it is happening on April 27, 2012.
As always I am giving away some free tickets (each with a +1). To enter all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with GIGGLES in the subject line. Include your full name. I will only be contacting the winners.
