Saturday the 14th ★½ 1981 (PG)

A parody of the popular axe-wielding-maniac genre, about a family inheriting a haunted mansion. Poorly made; not funny or scary. Followed by even worse sequel: “Saturday the 14th Strikes Back.” 91m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Benjamin, Paula Prentiss, Severn Darden, Jeffrey Tambor, Kari Michaelsen, Kevin Brando, Rosemary DeCamp, Stacy Keach; D: Howard R. Cohen; W: Howard R. Cohen, Jeff Begun; C: Daniel Lacambre; M: Parmer Fuller.
