Product Description

Week-end de terreur (April Fool's Day) est un film américain réalisé par Fred Walton et sorti en 1986.Un groupe d'amis d'école, Harvey, Nikki, Rob, Skip, Nan, Kit et Arch, se retrouvent pour fêter la semaine de relâche en passant le week-end précédant le 1er avril dans un manoir que possède leur riche amie Muffy St John sur une île privée. L'ambiance est installée dès la première scène montrant Muffy en train de préparer les festivités et découvrant un vieux diable en boîte qui lui rappelle (en flashback) des souvenirs d'enfance, le jour où elle l'avait reçu comme cadeau d'anniversaire. Pendant ce temps, ses amis s'amusent sur le quai puis à bord du ferry qui les emmène sur l'île. Mais durant la traversée, Buck, un matelot du coin, est gravement blessé et défiguré. Une fois sur l'île, chacun prend possession de sa chambre dans le manoir. Muffy leur a préparé quelques farces, certaines inoffensives (un coussin péteur, des verres baveurs), d'autres plus perturbantes (une cassette audio avec des bruits de bébé, un attirail de junkie dans une armoire à pharmacie, des coupures de presse inquiétantes ...) Chacun garde son calme et tente de s'amuser, jusqu'à ce que Skip ne disparaisse.


What looks like a standard 1980s holiday-themed slasher movie turns out to be a much more witty venture. A group of college students head out for a weekend of relaxation and April Fools' pranks at an isolated island cottage, catching the very last ferry until Monday morning. A practical joke goes awry, hostess Muffy starts tromping around in frumpy clothes and acting like she's not quite herself, and the bodies start piling up. Don't you just hate it when you're on a completely remote island and the phone goes out? All of this is done, though, with a fairly low gore content and a sly wink at the usual slasher conventions--rather than whodunit, the trick is to figure out what's in good fun and what's real bloodletting. It ain't Citizen Kane, but it's not a bad evening's enjoyment either. --Ali Davis --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars April Fool's Day (1986) May 25 2004
A suprise delight of a horror/mystery film, "April Fool's Day" is an enjoyable slasher romp that has some suspenseful scenes and a good cast. Muffy St. John (played by Deborah Foreman) invites a large group of college students to her mansion for a weekend party. Many of the students are surprised and suspicious about the invitation, for they do not like Muffy and do not understand such a selfless deed. Fun and games (which mainly consists of reading poetry and playing practical jokes) turns to terror when a killer prowls the mansion and starts knocking off the teens one by one.
Director Fred Walton uses a funny, yet haunting script to create a slasher film with a twist. Nothing too special, for it stills holds very true with the genre, "April Fool's Day" will greatly satisfy fans of a film that combines humor and violence, while others purely dedicated to the slice-and-dice theme might be turned off. All in all, this is a film for those who enjoy horror sprinkled with laughs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch it. You Know You've Been Wanting To May 8 2004
I'm willing to bet you've put this film off for years. I'm sure you've seen it at the video store numerous times throughout the years, and you may have been intrigued by the cover with the chick holding the knife behind her back with her hair in a noose. Well, it may not be worth all those years of putting it off, but you'd might as well take that plunge now that the film is out on dvd. Ya know, this movie is actually pretty good considering it's a slasher flick. Slasher flicks aren't exactly the mark of quality, but this one has some decent performances and a good script that actually conjures up a few scares. Don't get me wrong, this movie isn't gonna keep you up all night or anything, but with a formulatic genre like this, April Fool's Day manages to be kinda spooky. And it's actually funny too! Alot of slasher flicks can't quite pull off the humor thing, but this movie actually manages to be laugh out loud funny. The humor and scares can be put down to some very good performances by the young cast. Most slasher flicks have acting that leaves much to be desired, but I'd have to say this movie has the best acting of any slasher flick I've seen(and I've seen many). The ending of this film gets mixed opinions. Some people see it as a letdown, while others find it quite original. I'm in the latter category, but it's one of those endings that's only gonna work once. Similar to Primal Fear or The Sixth Sense, the twist is good for the first viewing only, but that doesn't mean you won't enjoy watching it again. Just make sure you watch it with someone who hasn't seen it before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wish there were extras... March 24 2004
"April Fool's Day" is yet another one of those holiday themed slasher films that emerged in the wake of the "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" successes. You know all about them if you follow the genre in any substantive way--movies with names like "Mother's Day," "Graduation Day," "My Bloody Valentine," and "Silent Night, Deadly Night." O.K., the last two don't specifically refer to dates, but it doesn't take a genius to infer that the two films play on Valentine's Day and Christmas. The slasher genre never died out thanks in large part to the billion plus sequels in the "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" franchises, but their poorer cousins did fade into obscurity until DVD resurrected them. All I can say about that is thank goodness! I'm the first to admit that some of these films fail to rise above mediocrity, but several of them are quite good. "April Fool's Day" definitely falls into the latter category. The film doesn't contain a lot of gore we stalk and slash lovers have come to know and love, but the central plot of the film and its amazing twist ending makes the movie well worth watching. There is no other way to say it--"April Fool's Day" is actually a spoof of the entire slasher phenomena, and it spoofs the genre years before "Scream" appeared on the scene.
What makes "April Fool's Day" so different from the other slasher films? You won't notice anything amiss for most of the film. The plot is quite basic: a gang of college students accepts an invitation from a rich classmate to spend a few days at her opulent house on a remote island. The girl inviting all of her friends, Muffy Saint John (great name, eh?), is a bit of an oddball.
