Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Canadian Horror is always original
24 April 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a horror movie with a greater opening sequence or finale. This movie isn't really scary at all, but it's so well put together and laced with great tongue-in-the-cheek humor that it's hard to believe someone not enjoying it.

The movie begins with a funeral in which one family member is dragged inside the coffin after scoffing the deceased and ends up in the crematory because the funeral workers are listening to headphones and do not hear the screaming. Then this image appears on a drive-in movie screen where the focus is on two teens watching it. Amidst the cliche boy wants to make-out and not watch the movie idea, the girl decides to get more popcorn. The confection booth is empty so she steals the popcorn and returns to find her boyfriend missing. Then he appears at the window, looking rabid and attacks her, jump-starting a random hair band video which incorporates the awesome (but forgotten) Canadian band White Sister and the drive-in. While the girl attempts to escape a drive-in full of zombies, the band (inside the confection area) belts out the song "April" which just so happens to be the girl's name. Then the name of the band appears on the lower left of the screen (MTV style) and as the camera pulls back, this is all just a rock video that one of our main characters was watching.

Then begins our movie. The focus is on 3 college girls pledging a sorority. Random deaths begin to occur around an abandon frat house which will later be used as an April Fool's Co-ed party. Lots of humor and some great characters and dialogue lead us to a point where things seem to be just your average cliche slasher, but then the finale is definitely refreshing and very tongue-in-the cheek.

other great Canadian horror films include: Hello Mary Lou, Prom Night 2 and Ginger Snaps
