Editorial Reviews

Each April Fool’s Day, fabulously wealthy young Desiree Cartier hosts the most killer coming-out parties at her to-die-for southern mansion. And this social event is never complete without one of her patented pranks. But when this year’s joke turns deadly, Desiree, her brother Blaine and five of their friends all become the targets of a twisted killer who begins hunting them down one by one in this chilling tale of seduction, betrayal and revenge.

Customer Reviews

You just see this lame prank go wrong, and don't care what happens after that.
Micheal Hunt
April Fool's Day easily has to rate as one of the worst if not the absolute worst remake that has ever come to be.

Assuming it was he who played the trick, they head over to his house and instead find him quite dead.

On the one year anniversary of the death of one of their friends, Milan Hastings (Sabrina Aldridge), Desiree Cartier (Taylor Cole) and her friends receive a letter telling them that if one of them doesn't confess to murdering Milan then all of them will be murdered, one by one.

Firstly, let me just say that this film is NOT a remake of the 1986 horror movie of the same title. These films are similar only in title, genre and the fact that neither film is particularly good. "April Fool's Day" (2008) reminded me a lot of those R.L. Stine teenage horror novels that were popular back in the early `90's, and is about as scary. A bunch of rich twenty-somethings, whom I didn't really care about are, are led like lambs to the slaughter from one stock horror film scenario to the next. The best things that I can say about it are (i) the ending's actually not too bad and (ii) at least the story was coherent, which is better than you can say about a lot of movies. This isn't too bad a viewing choice if you want to switch off your brain for 90 minutes, but otherwise, you should probably watch something else.

This movie was pretty terrible. The acting was horrible - the murders were horrible and the special effects were non existant. The original April Fool's Day was fun... it had everything a horror movie should have -and it even had himbos - dumb cute guys running around 1/2 dressed -- not just the bimbos in high heals. You could see the twist ending of this movie coming 5 minutes into the movie. I can see why this movie went straight to video -- get a group of friends together with a hand cam and you can make a better movie than this.

Format: DVD
April Fool's Day was a remake of the 1980's film off the time. It features a cast of good looking people that looks like they stepped off a soap opera or MTV. That's one thing I miss about the 80's horror films, the teens in those films looked like real people rather then Hollywood actors. Anyway, a group of friends pull a prank and someone dies. A year later they start to get messages from her. The first death was painfully stupid that it might go down as the worst death scene ever filmed that didnt involve CGI. It's cliche and not worth the time, even though the story was pretty good. The death scenes are some of the worst i've ever seen, right along side Prom Night. Overall, I do not recommend this to serious horror fans. If your some teenage girl who watches MTV alot and looking for a good scare, then this is up your alley.

April Fools' Day (The Butcher Brothers, 2008)

The second straight-to-video-supposed-"remake" I've seen this year that looks absolutely nothing like the movie that spawned it, but where the Day of the Dead flick was actually a great deal of fun, April Fool's Day was a tiresome examination of how different the rich are-- kind of like Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, but without such niceties that film sported as talent and wit.

The Butcher Brothers' (The Hamiltons) third feature together opens on April Fools' Day 2007, at a coming out party for Torrance Caldwell (the beautiful and suddenly-ubiquitous Scout Taylor-Compton), hosted by the First Family of Atlanta money, the Cartiers. Desiree (Summerland's Taylor Cole) and her brother Blaine (Josh Henderson, recently seen on Desperate Housewives) have actually staged the coming out party as the basis of an elaborate prank on their former friend Milan Hastings (Whittaker Bay's Sabrina Aldridge), who has turned her back on the life of the idle rich and thrown herself into charitable causes). The prank goes horribly wrong, and Hastings ends up dead. Fast forward to a year later, and most of the circle of friends involved in the prank have all been summoned to Hastings' grave by mysteriously-delivered invitations. When they arrive, a package is delivered containing a laptop showing footage of the death of one of those absent. Assuming it was he who played the trick, they head over to his house and instead find him quite dead. From there, the flick develops into a bland, uninspiring slasher film. Aside, of course, from the big twist, which will come as absolutely no surprise to anyone who saw the original--it's the only thing the two movies have in common.

I think this is a hard title to capture, but I think it is not a reach to classify April Fools Day as the worst horror movie of all time. I read somewhere that this movie cost over 10 million to make and if that is true somebody is running around with 9 mil in their pockets.

This movie is a joke, it's not scary, the directing is probably the worst I have seen in a long time and I'm sure there was even a script by the number of writers listed in the credits.

If you want good independant horror check out "Them" or if you like Josh Henderson a movie like "Fingerprints" is much better then the movie I just had to watch. April Fools Day redefines torture porn.

In honor of today actually being April Fool's Day, I thought I'd write this review. I saw this movie last year after I watched the original. This is very different and not like the original, until the very end. Desiree Cartier is very rich. She is having a party for Torrance Caldwell, who is played by the sexy beautiful Scout Taylor-Compton. Desiree plays a prank, but it all goes wrong and someone dies. A year later, the people responsible for the prank become the targets of a killer, but it's all in good fun because it's APRIL FOOL'S DAY!!!
