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?

At the beginning of the film, Griffin O'Neal's Skip character is blamed for an prank-turned-accident which leaves a ferryman disfigured. In a bizarre case of life imitating art, O'Neal was indicted on manslaughter charges the following year for a drug-induced boating mishap that resulted in the death of Francis Ford Coppola's son Gian-Carlo Coppola.

Why don't you tell us something about yourself?

April Fool's Day is another slasher film cashing in on a holiday, but this is not an ordinary horror film. The cast includes some 80s icons including Amy Steel (Friday The 13th Part 2), Deborah Foreman (Valley Girl), Clayton Rohner (Just One of The Guys, Modern Girls), and Thomas F. Wilson (Back To The Future).
The film is about a group of college students going to spend Spring Break at their friend Muffy's (Foreman) house on an island. What seems like a fun Spring Break soon turns scary as the friends start to disappear one by one.
This movie is great at delivering suspense, and every actor plays their parts perfectly. This film gets a lot of hate, but it is actually a fun film to watch. One of the best of the horror genre.
