Editorial Reviews

The comedy/chiller "April Fool's Day" follows a gang of teens at a remote mansion where a maniac with no sense of humor is killing them one by one. Hey, put that axe down! Can't you take a joke? Apparently not, because the gore starts flowing fast.AAHHH! Deborah Foreman, Griffin O'Neal star. Also includes "My Bloody Valentine" (1981). Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.

First off I have to state that I'm one of the cheapest S.O.B.'s around these parts(at least that's what my friends and family say!), so when you see the 4 star rating for this double feature of mediocre slasher fare you can be rest assured that it gets extra marks for costing me a measley $7.00 brand new and not because I in any way believe that these are "the greatest films from the Slasher Frenzy Era that ran amok during the mid seventies to mid eighties(as quoted from a fellow reviewer here)." These movies are far from slasher heaven(with Halloween and Black Christmas), but then again they aren't deserving of slasher hell either(with Driller Killer and every Hollywood slasher remake)... let's just put them comfortably in slasher purgatory where they belong(with House On Sorority Row and Maniac Cop). My Bloody Valentine tells the tale of a town cursed to never celebrate Valentines Day again without unleashing the wrath of a miner who was the only survivor in a horrible accident that happened years ago on that day. The premise is laughable in that all they have to do is NOT celebrate Valentines Day(at least on February 14th) and nobody dies... but apparently they love the holiday so much that they just can't resist-- do real people even celebrate Valentines Day?! Anyhow, they throw a Valentines dance even with the possibility of certain doom and the slashing begins. My Bloody Valentine plays like a slightly(and I do mean slightly, no gore here at all) edgier episode of Scooby Doo with the eventual unmasking of the "evil miner" by a hero who even dresses like Shaggy from the cartoon(I'm talking shirt open from the belly-button up with a scarf!). A decent time waster though, with solid acting and a few nice moments of tension (a big budget remake is in production... Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy the Feature for April Fool's Day (1986) July 2, 2011
This double-feature was very good and had a very reasonable price. I loved and enjoyed April Fool's Day, but I despised My Bloody Valentine. I like to think that April Fool's Day was $11.95 and My Bloody Valentine was a freebie.

April Fool's Day had a beautiful cheese factor to it (which I adored) but it was a bit too creepy for it's time. The actors were very attractive and provocative. The language and innuendo was extreme, but the violence and gore was low!

MY Bloody Valentine had a boring plot and I found myself snoring throughout. The film had a disturbingly stupid opening and the ending results in the same manner. Very predictable. The Unrated/Uncut version may be best, but please pass up the TV-PG Version!

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any collection June 30, 2009
This double feature dvd is a steal. I highly recommend it to any 80's slasher fans. Lets take a look at the two movies that are featured.

MY BLOODY VALENTINE: It's what horror movies aren't anymore. I found this movie entertaining from beginning to end,it never dragged on. A tragic mining accident leaves only one survivor. This miner hates Valentines Day with a passion and will kill everyone who dares even hang a paper heart outside. The fun begins human hearts are being sent out in candy boxes with an eerie warning never to have the towns Valentine dance. While the dance is canceled in fear of the townspeople's safety they decide to have a Valentines party instead,and everyone gets picked off one by one. Boiled hearts and a dead body in a dryer make this a favorite of mine.

APRIL FOOLS DAY: Not as good as "My Bloody Valentine" but it's a decent film for anyone's budget. And buying the double feature saves you money as opposed to buying the movies separately. It has a decent body count. I like the scene near the beginning where the ferry crushes the side of a guys face. Overall good mystery film. Give this set a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars my bloody valentine's good, april fool's day stinks August 25, 2008
Verified Purchase
my bloody valentine is a pretty good generic slasher movie. set in a mining town, the final scenes in the mine with the mad killer on his rampage are quite effective. unfortunately the movie has been cut to get a very tame R rating. i liked it anyway. april fool's day on the other hand stinks. a bunch of rich college punks go to a mansion on a cut off island (no phones etc). they start getting knocked off one by one. suspicion falls on the host muffy. or is it her mad sister buffy? i won't give away the ending but i hated it. so, this dvd is two movies for the price of one. i liked one and hated the other. but who knows, maybe you'll like april fools day and hate my bloody valentine. at 7.49 i recommend it. it was pretty good fun. 3 and 1/2 stars.

I'm a big trailer fan as well, but no... this is a cheap barebones release. Unfortunately.
