Excellent Horror Movie!
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.

A group of long time friends get invited to an isolated island retreat. One by one they meet their demise. But the best part is the awesome twist at the end.
Staring Amy Steele(Friday the 13th part 2)
With more brains than your average teen slasher "April Fools Day" is about a group of college kids spending a weekend at their friends house (the wonderfully named Muffy!!)on a remote island. What starts out with the kids playing practical jokes on each other soon turns sinister as the friends start disapearing one by one. While not strictly a slasher (there is very little gore) it is a great little whodunnit which is a bit tongue in cheek. The story is full of red herrings and will keep you guessing right up until the end, along with a fantastic 'twist' ending, way before every other film was doing it!!. If 80's horrors are your thing then this will not dissapoint.
Shown as widescreen with English and French soundtrack.
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.
