Back Road Diner teaches us the quickest way to a mans heart is not through his stomach its through his chest with a knife. The masterminds behind Troma Entertainment lay on the hip-hop in this horrific and humorous film about four boys from the hood who set out on a cross-country road trip. Along with the amber waves of grain, the childhood friends discover their New York City ghetto is no match for the redneck-filled South. During a stop at a diner, racial tensions fly along with human appendages. Its all set to a soundtrack featuring Afrika Bambaataa, Kingsize, Soul to the Rhythm and Digital Konfusion. Prepare to get your groove and your scream on at 10 p.m. Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks, 1000 West Oaks Road, West Oaks Mall. For information, call 281-920-9211 or visit www.drafthouse.com/westoaks.
