Don't let the joke be on you!
|April Fool's Day|
Over spring break, a group of 1980s cliches visit a wealthy friend, Muffy St. John, who lives in an old mansion on a secluded island. The group includes some pranksters who continually frighten the rest of the party with elaborate gags before yelling April fools! Muffy herself is the biggest of the pranksters and has set up funny little jokes throughout the mansion.
|"What do you mean Journey is breaking up?"|
This is one of the later American slasher films and they do change things up a little to keep it from being stale. It has one of the biggest twist endings that I can recall in 1980s horror - I'll give you a hint, the final body count is zero - but what is most unique about April Fool's Day is the limited amount of violence and gore, and complete lack of nudity. Still, it's a fine little slasher comedy.
