 Saturday The 14Th
Fun horror spoof flick from the early 80's starring Richard Benjamin and Jeffrey Tambor. Any "Gimme A Break" fans will know who Kari Michaelson is as well. Sadly this was one of the last films Richard Benjamin starred in. I was a big fan of his movies growing up such as Westworld, Scavenger Hunt, Housecalls and one of my favorite short livedTV shows Quark.

I remember when this came out, but never saw it until a few years ago when a co-worker let me borrow his VHS copy of the movie. Pretty funny, but I wish I had seen it when it was new (and when I was younger).

I'd love to see Quark again. I can barely remember much of anything of the show except that he was an intergalactic garbage man

I actually saw S14 at the theatre, and its was great goofy fun, a little more family-friendly than "Student Bodies". I bought QUARK the day it came out, but have yet to watch it ... but I remember that time of my life vividly watching the short-lived series.

Richard Benjamin...a classic 1970's staple!

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
I remember seeing the ads for this on TV when it was first released, but didn't see it until I rented it on VHS several years later. Liked it for the goofy cartoony fun that it was. Anyone remember the late 80s sequel, SATURDAY THE 14TH STRIKES BACK? One of those "sequels nobody was clamoring for" that were so prevalent in the straight-to-video explosion of the late 80s. I know I rented it, but have zero recollection of the film.

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
I remember the trailer on TV but I never saw it, even when it played over and over on HBO, Cinemax etc. back in the eighties I always seemed to miss it.

To Netflix.

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
Speaking of Richard Benjamin, I was surprised to see him turn up in an episode of PUSHING DAISIES earlier this year, alongside George Segal as a pair of ex-convicts. Nice to see two now-older 70s actors together like that. First think I can recall seeing Benjamin in in a long time.

Well this has finally made it to NetFlix. Sadly this will be the last movie I watch as I'm so disgusted with the lack of quality content on NetFlix that I'm terminating my account right after this movie ends.

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
i feel your pain sir. i canceled my netflix account awhile back. they don't care at all about their customers anymore. really sad. they used to have some of the best customer service of any company i have ever dealt with.

just curious are you using the dvd service, streaming or both? i was using the dvd service and got 3-4 bad ones in a row with no apologies at all.

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
I switched to streaming after the price hike debacle and was satisfied, but over the past several months there hasn't been much stuff that interested me. Also, the NetFlix recommendations based upon my preferences were lousy. Reed Hastings needs to retire to his private island.

 Re: Saturday The 14Th
Sorry to hear about the negative Netflix experiences. I've noticed that there does seem to be somewhat less stuff that I want to see available, but my long standing queue still has tons of movies in it that I still should see. I had always used just the DVD service as we didn't have internet at home, but last year started using the streaming service too when we finally broke down and got high-speed internet. The newness and novelty are still pretty fun for me. I was disappointed with all the pricing mis-steps Netflix made last year and we switched from 3 DVDs out at a time to 2, but I think we'll probably continue subscribing to Netlfix for the foreseeable future. I still like getting DVDs because the streaming content still doesn't have a lot of the older movies that a CDF fan like me wants to see. Also, we still don't have cable, so it's almost a necessary thing to have something like Netflix as an entertainment option. Plus, I don't want to have to pay for any more things on my Roku box and if we got rid of Netflix the box would be almost useless.
