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

Did You Know?


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 »

Party hardy
10 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

O.k. I can tell you a lot about this movie, good and bad, and some facts. Lets start with the facts- This movie was originally filmed in 1984, sat on a shelf for 2 years, until MGM/UA picked it up, had a week or two theatrical release in spring of 86. The movie, is basically about college horror, 20 years ago, a pledge was accidentally killed during a prank. 20 years later, 3 sorority sisters pledge at the same college. The party takes place in an abandoned house, where the pledge was killed. A party is planned, students begin to get killed, but a demonic force invades one of the 3 girls. The demonic force is the spirit of the 20 year dead student. I quess you know what happens next.. Things i liked and dislike about the film 1. Most of the killings take place off screen. For a horror r-rated movie, this could have (by todays standards) been an easily PG-13. I saw the TBS version, and there is not much cut out, Acept a little, and i mean little nudity, its like the makers forgot that it was supposed to be rated R. What i did like is the totally unexpected beginning. Yes, a mid 1980's music video. with a quiet riot/ratt group. My overall rating is a B- I have seen worse.

This film is currently out of print, and most likely will be indefinite. By all means get a rental copy... good luck!
