Evil Laugh is an American slasher film[2] directed and starring Dominick Brascia, Jr. and stars Myles O'Brien, Jerold Pearson, and Kim McKamy. The film is about a group of medical students attacked by a masked killer while repairing a building over the weekend.


A decade ago, an orphanage has been rebuilt after being burned down following accusations of child molestation and abuse from the building's custodian, resulting him to a psychotic breakdown leading him to a mass murder. Years later, a group of medical students are brought in by pediatrician-turned doctor to rebuild the building as a foster home, unbeknownst that a masked assailant is within the area and is stalking them.



In his overview of horror films from the 1980s, Scott Aaron Stine described the film as "effortless tripe" and that "There is nothing, I repeat, nothing worthwhile or even remotely worthwhile or even remotely memorable about this waste of celluloid."[1]
