april fool's dayWhen Muffy St. John invited her college friends up to her parent’s secluded island home for the time of their lives, she forgot to tell them it just might be the last time of their lives.  Because as soon as the kids arrive on the island, someone starts trimming the guest list…one murder at a time.  And what starts out as a weekend of harmless April Fool’s Day pranks turns into a bloody battle for survival.

This is a great film from the 80’s.  It has the Friday the 13th feel to it.  The characters are believable, and there is plenty of humor in it.  It starts out with everyone meeting to get on a boat so they can go to Muffy’s house for the weekend.   Once they reach Muffy’s house, two of the guys on the boat start to goof around which ends up in getting one of the boat crew members severly hurt.  Later on they are at Muffy’s place and strange things start to happen.  One boy has been drowned, a girl was found in a well.  Now there seems to be a killer on the loose.  The first 45 minutes are the people in the movie just having a good time.  They play April Fool’s Day jokes on each other.  Then once the killing starts the film starts to get serious.  The ending is just amazing, and unexpected.  If you were to see this movie, you’d have to stay and wait for the ending so that you could see how it ends.   The ending alone is well worth the rental price.  I would watch this movie just see the ending.  It is a great movie with a lot of Friday the 13th elements to it.  If you haven’t already seen this film you need to. I give it 7 out of 10 stars.
