4.0 out of 5 stars House Of Games 21 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun. 10 Sep 2012
I remember seeing this at the cinema in 1986 and so was keen to see how it held up today.
I was pleasantly surprised that I thought it was a lot of fun.
This film came out towards the end of the 'slasher' film cycle and unlike many of it's predecessors this film is distinctly un-nasty.
Lots of red herrings populate the film to keep you guessing this is quite an entertaining flick.
It was re-made in 2008 as a direct to DVD film and the remake is not worth watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid horror trilogy 29 May 2011
By mr x
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i ended up getting this after looking for graveyard shift and noticed this 3 disk set featuring tales from the darkside and april fools day and as a fan of the first two mentioned and having a multi region player i decided to spend the extra and got this set. graveyard shift is the best one here 8/10 from the days when nearly everything by stephen king was made into a movie and tales from the darkside is a nice little horror trilogy in itself featuring a couple of very famous faces i.e christian slater and steve buscemi who's 3 story's are 7/10 for the first 2 and 8/10 for the last and then there's april fools day which seems to be popular but personally 6/10 worth a watch for me. a nice collection for a horror fan that will have you watching at least two of them over again. would have said three and a half stars cos of the price but went for four cos there is more good than bad here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! 18 Oct 2004
Finally this fantastic 80's horror movie is available on DVD. I've spent last 10 years searching for any copy of this movie, in videostores, video rental shops.. you name it.. just all over without any luck. I'm a huge horror fan, but somehow this movie stands on top of the pile. Great twist, good actors (well at that time) and it will make you startled more then once!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Twist 23 Feb 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although this is a classic 80's horror, it is amongst my favourites in this era of horror movie. It has a great twist, and it's a film you will definitely remember. The night I watched it, I was too scared to go down to the bottom of the garden to feed my visiting foxes !!!

4.0 out of 5 stars No April fool 20 July 2005
By DVD Fan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a great fun film for a horror. Made long before the recent crop of modern teen horrors this film has a bit of everything. I first saw it on TV years ago and as soon as I watched it I just what a great movie, very simple and low budget it does have a few scares. Based around the Agatha Christie story And then there were none, if you know the story or film of that ,well this is a slasher version! It does look a little dated now being nearly 20 years old, but the first time you watch it you will be pleasantly surprised at the ending. Although I've seen the film about 5 times now and with repeat viewing it's charm is lost a little but great to watch now and then. Unfortunately no extras on the DVD but just glad it got released, one for horror fans!

By Benminx
April Fools Day has been written with more care than the average slasher. While many of the era were just out to cash in on hormonal audiences wanting to see some sex and blood, this pays a lot of attention to the plot, and to building effective chills.
Despite the age, the image and feel of it hasn't aged badly, and only a scattering of fashions remind you of the period. The cast appear typical at first, but show themselves to be a little better than expected at several stages, and the people I expected to be the heroes of the piece turned out to be side characters.
The finale was also clever, and better than expected.
The humour is a touch hit and miss but adds a nice lightness of touch in places that helps the threat feel more real when it kicks in.
The film has a slight self-awareness because of the April Fool gags littering it that makes it feel almost like part of the recent wave of 'Cabin in the Woods' 'meta'-movies, and so it makes for better than expected viewing for 80's horror fans and 'New movie' fans alike.
A classic that has aged well.

This film was better than anticipated: the plot was acceptable, and though two thirds of the way through t did become a little unhinged. Read more
