Saturday the 14th

Sorry for the lack of updates. Lack of time and lack of anything to blog about, really. No wonder the reader tally for my blog is skydiving by the month. This blog sucks!

Anyone remember a movie called Saturday the 14th? It was a horror/comedy spoof that came out in the early 80's. I remember it being the funniest movie when I was a kid and was thinking of trying to track it down. I doubt it would hold up, most things don't after all these years. But sometimes, one is pleasantly surprised.

Hmm, haven't heard of that one before.

By the way- That Thor's hammer story idea sounds great lol.

I believe it won an acadamy award back in '81 for Greatest Movie of All Time, or maybe that was Highlander?
Either way, I watched it a haunting 14 times when it was on HBO and I didn't come to the evil end that many had speculated. It was probably more like 1400 times, but I'm pretty sure I watched it on an actually Saturday the 14th, which was a bold stroke for 9 year old.
I doubt I would temp fate again, and I emplore you Mr. Champagne not to do so as well!!!
Might I suggest Zoro the Gay Blade or even the Kentucky Fried Movie as the safe alternative?

HBO back in the 80's ran that movie every day for a year. Of course I remember it. I might even be able to contend with Mr. Ninja for most times watched. I remember loving it.

I also loved Zoro the Gay Blade and remember sneeking downstairs to watch all the boobs in Kentucky Fried Movie. Hail HBO in the early years for stellar programing.

I also enjoyed Zorro, The Gay Blade quite a bit.

My early teen HBO movies of choice were the first Swamp Thing flick, and some movie where Patrick Dempsey was a pizza delivery boy/male prostitute. I must have watched both of those 459 times a piece.

We should put together a 'beloved 80's movies of our youth' marathon.

Anyone who paid money to see that movie is a GOD in my eyes!

I remember that film only all too well, in fact i even own a copy of it, as well as of it's really shitty sequel "Saturday the 14th strikes back". Whereas the first one was quite funny (though not on the level of "House 2: The second storey"), the sequel is just a big steaming pile of horse manure.
