    I can't even begin to defend this silly movie. Saturday the 14th is considered a spoof of the various horror sub genres, but in fact it does its own thing while still being a bit of a spoof. It certainly isn't a spoof in the style of the Zucker comedies and it's more homage than anything. Besides the title, it's got lots to send up. Everything from Dracula, bats, a werewolf, a mummy, the Creature from the Black Lagoon... basically all of the Universal classic monster bits, are in there. Then it also takes knocks at slasher and haunted house movies like Halloween, Jaws and The Amityville Horror, or even the original House on Haunted Hill. It's comedy isn't all that funny, per se, but it's too lighthearted and harmless to be written off completely. It does feature a very early role for Jeffrey Tambor, and I also like the dad who doesn't buy into any of this ghouls and ghosts business... even when they're standing right in front of him. I'm not sure if that was the aim, but it's definitely in the performance. The movie isn't that good I guess, and it's more or less obscure nowadays, but it's enjoyable for what it is, which is a harmless (but mostly unfunny) horror comedy. Actually, now that I think of it, this and Ghost Fever would make a great double feature... or not. ;)

    For a comedy, it kinda fails, for horror movie, it also kinda fails and for a fail movie it succeeds.

    A good horror movie spoof but not as good as Student Bodies even though it almost comes close.The bath tub scene was hilarious

    Not that funny to tell you the truth. Don't watch it. p.s: as I have to give it a half star, so that will be for the starting where the werewolf coughed. That was funny.
