April Fool’s Day (1986) Review:

April Fool’s Day” is a personal favorite horror movie of mine and one the coolest and smartest slashers I’ve ever seen, especially since it’s from the 80s and it requires you to think about who the killer could be, in its mysteriously amusing setting.

The acting is pretty decent especially from Deborah Foreman’s character Muffy/Buffy and the characters are likable even though some of them can get annoying at times. Other than that it is enjoyable to watch.

This movie is quite light on the gore and the camera cuts off the screen when people are being killed. Gorehounds might, then, not like this film, but if you’re into a good storyline and a bit of a mystery, then this movie is for you.


Another cool thing about this flick is its twist ending. The twist is what, I think, makes the movie, and you’ll either love it or hate it. This film is like a modern update to Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” (the two movies being fairly similar) and adds a nice little touch of the 80s to it.

I highly recommend this to anyone that is a fan of 80s horror and is looking for something different than the average slasher. This film will not disappoint and even people that aren’t into horror should be intrigued and get a kick out of it.
