Rated R, 112 minutes
After Hollywood officially called an end to remakes, a new genre appeared. Instead of remaking one film, studios started combining films into hybrids. One of the better examples is "Black Tron." Combing elements of "Tron" and "Black Swan," "Black Tron" takes place in a futuristic grid world where groups of lesbian ballet dancers are forced to fight dance and race light cycles to the death. Although they're raised from birth to live this life, Jayna (Diora Baird) a brutal fight-dancing champion, has continually questioned life outside the grid. Knowing that the next battle could be her last, she frees her girlfriend (Sarah Shahi) along with a few other dancers, and the group must defeat the creator (Danny Trejo) and his army to escape the grid. "Black Tron" is filled with exciting, remarkable special effects, but it's the overabundance of sex and violence that really makes this film pop. APRIL FOOLS
'Bowling Alley Massacre'
Directed by Ti West
2007, Rated R, 89 minutes
Director Ti West is one of the fastest rising horror directors in the game. With his 2009 film "The House of the Devil," West set himself apart, creating a classic, '80s throwback vibe to the film that wowed audiences and critics alike. With the success of that film, Hollywood wanted more. So West rereleased his first independent film, "Bowling Alley Massacre," a low budget masterpiece revolving around a killer terrorizing a packed bowling alley. Although it doesn't have the glitz and glam of "The House of the Devil," "Bowling Alley Massacre" is still a wild and fun romp, featuring some of the goriest and most ridiculous kills ever on screen. With the league championships in full swing, the Beaver Bowling Alley is packed to capacity. But when the doors become welded shut, the chaos ensues as the body count piles up. Be afraid, because the gutters run red with blood during "Bowling Alley Massacre." APRIL FOOLS
