2015 October Horror Challenge #65 "Bloody April Fools"
This is actually a cool little movie that suffers from a HORRIBLE marketing campaign that makes it sound like something else. This sounds like a bad DTV sequel to "April Fool's Day" or sonething, which guarantees that the people who'd probably like it will never check it out. Great job, idiots.
The movie is about a prank at a youth hostel thst turns deadly, and then a group of teens 15 years later who stumble upon the abandoned hostel and decide to party there for a night (great idea if you've never seen a horror movie before in your life). As it turns out, the place us cursed and the teens start to die horribly.
I do mean hirribly, too. This movie has some NASTY deaths. I was impressed with the gore. The teens are s bunch of teats and I hated them all, but luckily they don't last long before they all start to die, so you don't have to put up with them for long. The original prank that started everything years ago is pretty fucking sick (what the hell is wrong with people? How is that funny?) Once everything is explained, I'm not totally sure I buy it, but the ending is still pretty cool. This is a nasty little "dead teenager movie" with some good nudity, cool gore, and a few good twists, and it deserves to be advertised better so the people who want those things will actually see the damn movie.
