April Fool's Day

Starring Thomas F. Wilson and Jay Baker

Directed by Fred Walton

Release Date: March 27, 1986

In the 1980's, it seemed as if all the major holidays had become titles for Horror films (though I'm still looking for that Easter Bunny Massacre bootleg on the internet), this film acknowledges the prankster's favorite holiday with morbid glee. This is a film that KNOWS it won't be as well remembered as Halloween or Friday the 13th, but is willing to go along and have a few 30 year old actors pretending to be college students stumble around an island mansion and get killed fo 90 minutes. If you don't mind a little campy fun in your horror movie, you'll enjoy April Fool's Day.

Rating: * * * of 5
