I enjoyed this movie more than the original. It reminded me of Cruel Intentions meets I Know What You Did Last Summer... Without the humour or scares - It was more about who-did-it. It's so far from the original that they might as well have just made it a sequel. If you want to see this movie, I suggest renting before buying.

HASH(0x9dfd96fc) out of 5 stars NOT a remake of the 1986 film of the same title Sept. 4 2008
By Genevieve Hayes - Published on
Format: DVD
On the one year anniversary of the death of one of their friends, Milan Hastings (Sabrina Aldridge), Desiree Cartier (Taylor Cole) and her friends receive a letter telling them that if one of them doesn't confess to murdering Milan then all of them will be murdered, one by one.

Firstly, let me just say that this film is NOT a remake of the 1986 horror movie of the same title. These films are similar only in title, genre and the fact that neither film is particularly good. "April Fool's Day" (2008) reminded me a lot of those R.L. Stine teenage horror novels that were popular back in the early `90's, and is about as scary. A bunch of rich twenty-somethings, whom I didn't really care about are, are led like lambs to the slaughter from one stock horror film scenario to the next. The best things that I can say about it are (i) the ending's actually not too bad and (ii) at least the story was coherent, which is better than you can say about a lot of movies. This isn't too bad a viewing choice if you want to switch off your brain for 90 minutes, but otherwise, you should probably watch something else.

HASH(0x9dfd9750) out of 5 stars If you thought the original was bad... April 21 2008
By Jeffrey Schmidt - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie was pretty terrible. The acting was horrible - the murders were horrible and the special effects were non existant. The original April Fool's Day was fun... it had everything a horror movie should have -and it even had himbos - dumb cute guys running around 1/2 dressed -- not just the bimbos in high heals. You could see the twist ending of this movie coming 5 minutes into the movie. I can see why this movie went straight to video -- get a group of friends together with a hand cam and you can make a better movie than this.

HASH(0x9dfd9a2c) out of 5 stars MTV Presents April Fool's Day July 5 2010
By A. Pierre - Published on
Format: DVD
April Fool's Day was a remake of the 1980's film off the time. It features a cast of good looking people that looks like they stepped off a soap opera or MTV. That's one thing I miss about the 80's horror films, the teens in those films looked like real people rather then Hollywood actors. Anyway, a group of friends pull a prank and someone dies. A year later they start to get messages from her. The first death was painfully stupid that it might go down as the worst death scene ever filmed that didnt involve CGI. It's cliche and not worth the time, even though the story was pretty good. The death scenes are some of the worst i've ever seen, right along side Prom Night. Overall, I do not recommend this to serious horror fans. If your some teenage girl who watches MTV alot and looking for a good scare, then this is up your alley.

HASH(0x9dfd9f48) out of 5 stars Oh, the stupid, it hurts. Nov. 19 2008
By Robert Beveridge - Published on

April Fools' Day (The Butcher Brothers, 2008)

The second straight-to-video-supposed-"remake" I've seen this year that looks absolutely nothing like the movie that spawned it, but where the Day of the Dead flick was actually a great deal of fun, April Fool's Day was a tiresome examination of how different the rich are-- kind of like Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but without such niceties that film sported as talent and wit.

The Butcher Brothers' (The Hamiltons) third feature together opens on April Fools' Day 2007, at a coming out party for Torrance Caldwell (the beautiful and suddenly-ubiquitous Scout Taylor-Compton), hosted by the First Family of Atlanta money, the Cartiers. Desiree (Summerland's Taylor Cole) and her brother Blaine (Josh Henderson, recently seen on Desperate Housewives) have actually staged the coming out party as the basis of an elaborate prank on their former friend Milan Hastings (Whittaker Bay's Sabrina Aldridge), who has turned her back on the life of the idle rich and thrown herself into charitable causes). The prank goes horribly wrong, and Hastings ends up dead. Fast forward to a year later, and most of the circle of friends involved in the prank have all been summoned to Hastings' grave by mysteriously-delivered invitations. When they arrive, a package is delivered containing a laptop showing footage of the death of one of those absent. Assuming it was he who played the trick, they head over to his house and instead find him quite dead. From there, the flick develops into a bland, uninspiring slasher film. Aside, of course, from the big twist, which will come as absolutely no surprise to anyone who saw the original--it's the only thing the two movies have in common. (It will also come as no surprise to anyone who, you know, read the title of the movie before seeing it.)

I've seen far too many movies this year that have made me want that portion of my life back, and the ninety-one minutes I spent watching this movie can now be added to the tally. The script was loosely adapted from Danilo Bach's original screenplay by the Butcher Brothers themselves and first-time writer Mikey Wigart, and it's hard to know who to pin the blame on here (save Bach, whose original screenplay had all the humor, suspense, and fun that this one lacks). It seems to want to skewer the culture of the filthy rich, but I get the feeling that the Butcher Brothers, nee Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores, come from this type of background themselves; the characters are far too content to wallow in their shallowness for this to be an effective parody.

Well worth avoiding. I'd have bumped it up half a star for Taylor-Compton, but her overacting in the climactic scene is just painful to watch. (She's good for the rest of the movie, though.) *

HASH(0x9dfd9f60) out of 5 stars Worst Horror Movie of All Time! April 1 2008
By Dolby - Published on
Format: DVD
I think this is a hard title to capture, but I think it is not a reach to classify April Fools Day as the worst horror movie of all time. I read somewhere that this movie cost over 10 million to make and if that is true somebody is running around with 9 mil in their pockets.

This movie is a joke, it's not scary, the directing is probably the worst I have seen in a long time and I'm sure there was even a script by the number of writers listed in the credits.

If you want good independant horror check out "Them" or if you like Josh Henderson a movie like "Fingerprints" is much better then the movie I just had to watch. April Fools Day redefines torture porn.
