Top Customer Reviews
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!

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.
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.
