Picking a great horror doctor is difficult because the horror genre is filled with bad to awful ones. Even the best ones like Dr. Loomis have a tendency to use their patient as bait (see the Loomis-Lloyd relationship in Halloween 5) more than anything else. But, let’s take a look at Dr. Franken from Frankenhooker. Here is a doctor who is willing to do anything to save the woman he loves. Sure that might mean blow up some prostitutes but love does come at a price. He might not be a “good” doctor to some but he is to the love of his life and doesn’t that mean something?!
