April Fool's Day (1986)

Who's ready for a few good pranks?

The boys hit the Canadian West Coast for a weekend retreat at the palatial island home of their Vassar friend, Muffy St. John , but the weekend doesn't go quite as planned. There are secret abortion cassettes, utterly unfathomable sex positions and some of the worst 80s fashion we've ever seen. Oh...and murder.

There's something unusual about this late entry slasher and it's not just that actor Griffin O'Neal "Rebecca Gayhearted" (or is it "Brandied"?) a member of the Coppola family. There's also a secret alternative ending, a subtle queer read and no shortage of logistical questions about the plot. Plus: waterskiing, nurse shoes, and plenty of comparisons to the Friday the 13th franchise...including the game?!
