Three gorgeous babes decide to join a sorority, and a whole bunch of horny guys dump bees in the sorority's back yard where a bunch of girls are naked in the outside hot tub so when the girls jump out the boys use a video camera to take lots of shots of them. Their house mother gets talked into letting the girls have a hazing party in a forbidden frat house, and when she goes there to make sure the place is safe, she first stops at a handy grave in the front yard to explain to 'Allan' why she's letting the girls use the house, and tells him that it was all an accident and it's time for him to just let it go. Allan doesn't answer her, since he's dead. Or is he? As she is nailing down a loose banister on the stairway, a mysterious figure appears before her, brandishing what looks like a tire iron, she turns, asks "What are you doing here?" and this person does answer her by striking her dead. Well, the three pledges go through a hazing (and there are some very nice set pieces here, ... Written by Jim Knoppow

When released in 1986 the title was changed from "The April Fools" to "Killer Party" because the distributors feared that it would be confused with the film April Fool's Day (1986) which was also released around that time. See more »

Late entry in the first wave of the slasher mania, this flick is really a poor exemplar of a great era. Moving along as a Porkys' clone for almost an hour (after an interesting premise with a movie within a movie within a music video), the movie condense all its cards (read, killings) in the last twenty minutes or so, trying to recuperate the missed time. But, alas, this is not the case, as the killing are too few, most of them away from the lense of the camera, definitely not inventive (come on, what a sissy costume for a slasher killer is that?) and the supernatural explanation (with the previous heroine acting like Linda Blair in The Exorcist) is thin as carbon copy paper. Not worth more than a rent.
