Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Amid the glut of gory horror films that clogged the cable schedules and cineplexes in the wake of Halloween and Friday the 13th, April Fool's Day stands out as a fairly restrained exercise in the '80s teen-slasher genre. Low on gore and high on suspense, it uses the boy-who-cried-wolf scenario inherent in its premise to keep the audience guessing as to where the practical jokes end and the body count begins. With her Sheryl Lee-like features and facial expressions, Deborah Foreman makes an appealingly off-balance scream queen, while the rest of the young cast puts a nicely personal stamp on what could have been a collection of college-age stereotypes. It helps that Hollywood vet Danilo Bach Beverly Hills Cop laces the script's sexual hijinks with actual character development and a few decent plot twists. Some creepy music and a few freaky set pieces add a visceral edge to a workmanlike film that spends more time playing mind games than it does spilling blood. When all is said and done, though, April Fool's Day has more roller-coaster thrills than most slasher flicks with five times the gore.

    april fool's day

    being a horror fan its good to see different kinds of horror with an open mind. and i remember when i was younger i always see this on the shelves at blockbuster but never got a chance to see it for some reason. years later i find this at the library and finally got a chance to see it. i have to say this was quite creative and suspenseful. the pranks were unique and funny like the light off then another gets turned on and that weird black mask thing. basically the story takes place as the title of the film suggests with a group of friends staying at a mansion that belongs to a friend. the ending was something and reminded me in a way of clue and gosford park.

    Synopsis

    "April Fool's Day" is absolutely awesome, it has gore, suspense, and fear all jumbled together. It is about a college student, Muffy(Deborah Foreman), who decides to have an April Fool's Day party at her secluded house. She invites a whole bunch of her friends including: Amy Steel(Friday the 13th 2), Ken Olandt(Leprechaun), and Clayton Rohner(Just One of the Guys), and sets them all up with pranks. But as the weekend slips by, Muffy's friends start disappearing, one by one. Now, the joke's over, and the real party has begun....
