A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.
A group of eight college friends gather together at an island mansion belonging to heiress Muffy St. John to celebrate their final year of school. They soon discover that each has a hidden secret from their past which is revealed, and soon after, they turn up dead. Yet, are they really dead? Or is it just part of some very real and cruel April Fool's jokes? The hostess, Muffy, is the only one who apparently knows what's going on. But then again, is it really her doing the killing?

Deborah Foreman came in early to audition for Muffy, but the director and producers didn't feel she was right for the part. They were close to signing several other actresses who backed out for various reasons. Foreman really wanted the part and petitioned for another audition - she blew everyone away the second time around and landed the role. See more »

This movie is how can I say intriguingly bad in a way it's enjoyable to watch, and that's the key. It seems that the actors are overacting and hamming it up for the audience. Normally I would of switched the movie of like this as I did in Batman V superman, however I was hooked on how weird it is and where it was going. April fools day is shot like a home movie and acted such with random dialogue that never made sense, its the kind of film you would show a B movie party. It's difficult to review April Fools day without giving out massive spoilers as the movie title kind of does that anyway. April fools Day is as we shall say a Guilty Pleasure.
