April Fool’s Day (1986)

Directed by Fred Walton.  Written by Danilo Bach.  Starring Amy Steel, Deborah Foreman, Clayton Rohner, Ken Olandt, Griffin O’Neal, Deborah Goodrich, Thomas F. Wilson, Jay Baker and Leah Pinsent.

Plot: a group of students staying at a friend’s house begin to fall victim to a murderer over the April Fool’s weekend.


Muffy (Foreman) has all her friends over for the weekend and sets up small yet elaborate pranks for all of them.  But soon it gets out of hand when one of the friends goes missing.  And then another and another and so on and so forth.

That is literally all I can tell you about the movie unless you want me to give away the entire thing which I’m thinking for this movie, no.  I will tell you, however, that we didn’t love it.  DJ didn’t like it at all actually.  Aside from the great cast, DJ said it was a waste of time and as far as recommending it to other people, I tend to agree with him.  It’s really nothing special at all.


But if you do watch it, make sure to stick around for the entire credits.  There’s a song by Jerry Whitman called “Too Bad You’re Crazy”.  It’s outstanding and even has a kazoo solo.  Yes!

My score: 46.  DJ’s score: 31.
