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 »

Goofs

Forearm splints visible under Jennifer's sleeves whenever she blocks the blows from wooden beams. Her sleeves also become rolled up at one point when she's posessed, then back down again later to hide the splints. See more »

the greatest bad horror movie ever made
1 July 1999 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Killer party offers a combination of horror and laugh-out-loud bad effects. the storyline is not new and at times is very predictable but what saves the film is that you can't help but get involved. the film achieves the difficult balance between being hilariously poor and being at times truly terrifying.

a true 80s horror film. it is perfect for light hearted entertainment, offering both laughs at the low budget effects and occasional moments of terror.
