Evil Laugh (1986)

At the tail end of the slasher boom, hell, maybe even a few years past its expiration date, Steven Baio — yes, the brother of Scott, co-produced and starred in Evil Laugh. We all have dreams. Dreams that Scott Aaron Stine, in The Gorehound’s Guide to Splatter Films of the 1980’s, would crush by saying that “There is nothing, I repeat, nothing worthwhile or even remotely worthwhile or even remotely memorable about this waste of celluloid.”

A decade ago, an orphanage is being rebuilt after the community burning it down, thanks to rumors of child molestation from the janitor who lived there. He went nuts, killed a bunch of people and totally has nothing to do with Freddy Krueger.

Much later, some medical students decide to rebuild the space as a foster home, but they get killed one by one. Probably the only person of note — other than the Baio sibling — is star Kim McKamy, who is better known as adult star Ashlyn Gere. She refused to do nude scenes for this movie, which is kind of ironic.

Another actress in the film, Jody Gibson, was known as Sasha of the Valley and boasted a call girl service with clients alleged to be Bruce Willis, Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols and Tommy Lasorda. Oh yeah — her mom is the talent agent who found Tom Cruise. Life’s crazy, people.

Director Dominick Brascia, who was Joey in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, also directed the movie Hard Rock Nightmare.
