April Fool's Day (2008)
Directed by Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores

Starring Sabrina Aldridge Samuel Child Scout Taylor-Compton Taylor Cole

There's only one movie that's worse than the original 1986 crapfest "April Fool's Day" -- and that's the 2008 remake!

A total pile of direct-to-video garbage, this remake begins with a prank involving roofies gone terribly wrong at a debutante's ball -- naturally leading to a death on April 1. The rich group of trust fund babies responsible for the prank are of course contacted later by a murderer and killed off one by one.

You don't need even a junior high school education to know the "twist ending" of this movie, although it does have a double twist that's mildly clever. But still not clever enough.

There's little gore, the performances are weak (aside from Scout Taylor Compton) and overall you get the sense that the filmmakers don't like horror movies.

It wasn't that bad, but it could have been a lot better.
