My Bloody Valentine: 20 years after a Valentine's Day tragedy, a small town prepares for its annual holiday dance. When a box of candy arrives containing an eerie warning and a blood-soaked heart, the townsfolk realize that this Valentine's Day, romance is dead... and so are they!

April Fool's Day: After a college student invites her friends for a weekend at her parents' secluded island mansion, they're all ready to party -- but the joke is on them. One by one people start vanishing. Someone's either playing a vicious April Fool's prank or else there's a real killer on the loose!

I've always loved the movie My Bloody Valentine because it's so suspenseful. At times it is a little gory but it's still good. But I don't like the April Fool's movie because there were just too many plots and twists within the storyline that it didn't hold my interest.

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!

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.

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 ›

This double feature was the right price for two cult classics. These movies were great additions to my "B" horror movie collection.

"My Bloody Valentine" and "April Fool's Day" are two of the greatest films from the Slasher Frenzy Era that ran amok during the mid seventies to mid eighties. Also, they are among my collection of holiday slasher fare. Both are superb mysteries and both take place in creepy, isolated locales.

In "My Bloody Valentine," someone has been hurt by a past tragedy and will stop at nothing to prevent the annual Valentine's dance from taking place in their little mining town. They will even rip out someone's heart and send it to the sheriff or stuff the dance's organizer into a dryer. Rebellious high school friends boldly go to the mine where they are axed to death one by one. This is a very creepy atmospheric thriller with quite a few gory death sequences.

In "April Fool's Day," a group of college friends descend on a rich friend's retreat on an isolated island. There is an accident on the ferry; someone is badly disfigured. Soon holiday pranks turn to holiday murders as one by one the friends begin to disappear. Survivors frantically search for clues while the killer slashes their way through the guest list. In order to keep the killer's identity a secret, most of the killings are done off screen. If you like the "Friday the 13th" movies, you will enjoy "April Fool's Day" because the directors are the same and they share that outdoor woodsy atmosphere.

"My Bloody Valentine" and "April Fool's Day" are extremely enjoyable. This DVD is a great value and is highly recommended for those who enjoy good mysteries and/or good holiday slasher fare. Note: The title of my review is from the poster for my favorite slasher, "The House That Screamed." It was too appropriate to resist.
