April Fool’s Day (1986) vs. April Fool’s Day (2008)
College student Buffy (Deborah Foreman) has her birthday land of April Fools Day. For her birthday she invites a group of friends from over to her family's island getaway to spend the weekend partying.
They’re soon met with some practical-joke and bloodshed. As the movie continues, the guests begin to go missing, but what’s going on and who is to blame?
I actually like April Fool’s Day, I know there is a lot of people that don’t, but it has a certain amount of charm to it. Yes, it is cheesy and there is a lot better horror movies out there. Yet, I found the script to have a lot of interesting twists and turns.
They actually did remake this but I don’t think it got a theatrical release.
The story is slightly different and not very good. It’s boring, and sad attempt on a slasher film.
All the fun that was in the original is gone and we’re left with a movie that shouldn’t even be called a movie. It’s so bad that it is actually a chore to get through.
So, which is better?
The original is so much better. Original Wins.
