A great Horror movie-with a comic twist.
6 October 1999 | by (Mesa, AZ) – See all my reviews

According the movie, "If Friday the 13th is unlucky, Saturday the 14th is the worse". A family movies into a strange house that is inhabiated by many strange, undead monsters. The comedy of this movie is taking a horror scence and putting gags in it. Such as the mad scientist tasting his potion and saying "Not bad, but not good", or a mother finding a six-finger rubber glove. A good movie for the Halloween season.
