Saturday the 14th Movie Summary

In 1981, one of the most vile, disgusting, films ever made was brought to the big screen. This film warned us early on that “It gets bad on Friday the 13th, but it gets worse on Saturday the 14th.” Believe me; it doesn’t get much worse than Howard R. Cohen’s horror/comedy Saturday the 14th.

John and Mary portrayed here by real life spouses Richard (please don’t call me “Big Dick”) Benjamin and Paula Prentiss, are a happily married couple who inherit a cursed house in Eerie, PA. John and Mary decide to move into this “fixer upper” with their two children, Debbie and Billy, despite its known curse. SIDE BAR: (Debbie is portrayed by LTMR favorite, Kari Michaelsen. Kari is the text book definition of “80’s Hot.”

Her bathtub scene in this film, although frustrating, is quite memorable.) Shortly after they move in, Billy finds and leafs through the ancient Book of Evil. Just by looking at the books pictures, grotesque monsters, which reminded of rejects from the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in Star Wars, magically escape into the real world and try to kill off everyone in sight.
