Critic Reviews for April Fool's Day
Exceedingly stupid and convoluted, leading to a big 'huh?' ending. April Fool's, indeed.
The remake ignores the fun of the original in favor of a twisted tale of revenge.
Audience Reviews for April Fool's Day
Tawdry, low-budget schlock, April Fool's Day feels more like a cheesy soap opera than a horror film. A year after rich socialite Milan Hastings is killed in an apparent April Fool's Day prank gone wrong, she returns from beyond the grave to blackmail a group of her former friends to force her murderer to confess or they'll all be killed. The acting is terrible and the writing is atrocious; featuring some really awful dialog. The who-done-it isn't the least bit interesting and there's no suspense to any of the killings. At times April Fool's Day verges on being "it's so bad it's good," but it ends up just being bad.
Not a good movie. It's not a remake of the original it just steals the title and part of the plot... sorta. Weak acting and bad writing made this really hard to sit through. I can tell they didn't have quite enough footage for the length of movie they were shooting for because we spend a lot of time in establishing shots. It feels like an empty world as well. Not enough people walking around this small city. Straight to DVD crap here folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.
A so-so remake of the cult classic, although this time it is totally different characters and story but with the same idea. So if you have seen the original, if not then why?, you already have a good idea of how it will turn out. This is one of the main problems as it loses any sense of tension of the first film with its setting on a remote island. Despite the low budget TV movie feel, it was still watchable with a young trendy cast. Don't rush to see it but it's not that bad.
