What the hell were they thinking...?
7 October 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

What an idea to produce a sequel to 1981's utterly silly and forgettable horror-comedy "Saturday The 14th". But since in the glorious '80s decade film producers could get away with practically everything and due to the fact the original had been a modest video rental hit - how could it not have been, with its title clearly spoofing the immensely popular "Friday The 13th" movies at the time - it simply had to happen, I guess. So, 7 years later Howard R. Cohen returns to write & direct the lamentable "Saturday The 14th Strikes Back". It's the same concept of a family moving into a haunted house in a quiet neighborhood. In the cellar there's this crack in the floor that's supposed to unleash all the evil in hell on the following Saturday the 14th. It's up to the teenage son of the family to battle the evil and stop the invasion of ghouls & monsters. The film's simply beyond ridiculous and everything about it ranges from bad to worse, including the jokes. Although some moments are actually dumb enough to provide a couple chuckles. And it stars Ray Walston (from cult horror favorites like "Galaxy of Terror" and "Popcorn") as a senile gramps craving for eggs & bacon. But he doesn't save this movie. Far from, actually. All the other sources of laughter, will merely come from gazing at all the levels of ineptness. This bunch of silly nonsense includes: a repairman getting turned into a chicken, a hungry sofa, a cookie-munching critter under the bed, a musical interlude with female vampires singing, Michael Berryman as a mummy, the family's daughter getting sucked down the bathtub drain through the pipes and a lot of stock footage from other films during the climax where evil is supposed to emerge on a global level. It's not really that the movie manages to entertain with all this, it's more likely to keep you watching just because of the 'What the hell were they thinking?' question. Watch the two films back-to-back and you're sure to leave the room cross-eyed in desperate need for some intellectual stimuli. Or a good drink.
