the lede of the NYT review of ‘Saturday The 14th’ in 1982

”Saturday the 14th” is not the worst horror film that opened here yesterday. That is ”The Boogens.” However, ”Saturday the 14th” is the most aggressively wasteful. It’s an unfunny horror-filmparody with a cast headed by Richard Benjamin, Paula Prentiss and Severn Darden , directed and written by Howard R. Cohen, who shouldn’t be trusted to park the cars of such people, much less make a movie with them. – vincent canby
