Was originally to be a direct remake of the April Fool's Day (1986) but was rewritten to bring on a much more modern twist to April Fools. See more »
When the movie opens on April 1, 2007, Peter Welling is a candidate for the U.S. Senate and discusses the state of his campaign. As of that date the next primary election would still be 17 months away - too far away for a person to be running a Senate campaign. See more »

A question if I may, why in the blue hell would a person make a remake a film if they weren't going to stick to the original concept? I mean I understand making tweaks here and there but let's be clear this shares little to nothing with the 1986 original.
Though I deemed the original movie rather overrated I at least appreciated the intricate story that it wove. This 2008 remake throws the originals concept out the window and comes up with something all of it's own, sadly what it's replaced with is generic Hollywood tripe and not even the top shelf tripe.
With an interchangeable forgettable cast playing top 1% spoiled trust fund babies we see a mindless tale about a prank gone wrong and the past coming back to haunt them one year later. So again, this doesn't even resemble the original movie.
The characters are detestable, news flash it's very hard to care about the plights of wretched human beings such as these (And no there isn't a "Nice" one mixed in). For this reason I was entirely unable to give a crap about the fates of these people and considering how dull the plot was I couldn't find it in myself to care about that either.
Did you like the original? If so this won't appeal to you.
But do you like slashers? If so then again this won't appeal to you
Hardly a remake
As generic as conceivably possible
