Muffy St John is a real queen amongst practical jokers. She invites nine college friends to an April's Fool party at her island home, and plants jokes and boobytraps in every room to catch her guests out. However things take an unseen, sinister turn, when the guests start to dissapear, and the friends start to turn on one another. Is there somebody else on the island with a grudge against the partgoers?
This a great 80's comedy slasher film, with an excellent young cast, and a great twist at the end. Whilst I am a big fan of modern 21st century horror, sometimes I feel that filmakers have lost that sense of fun that you used to find in 1980's horrors. Well this is full of great laughs, scares, gleefully piling on the red herrings to confuse the audience, and offering something a bit different to the routine slashers of that period.
A perfect Halloween film, to be served as a first course before the ghoulish dish of the day. 4 out of 5
