Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the duo behind such films as Scary Movie, Meet the Spartans and Vampires Suck, are back with another spoof comedy, The Starving Games, available as a digital download, Blu-ray and DVD on November 14 from Ketchup Entertainment. You can check out the trailer below and the poster in the gallery underneath. Here’s how the movie is described:
Set in the most depressing corner of a post-apocalyptic future, our hero Kantmiss Evershot (Maiara Walsh) volunteers to take her manipulative younger sister’s place in the 75th annual “Starving Games.” In doing so, she must leave behind her smoldering just-a-friend Dale (Brant Daugherty) and team up with the geeky baker’s son Peter Malarkey (Cody Allen Christian) in a fight for her life. But wait, there’s more! She could also win an old ham, a coupon for a footlong sub at a six-inch price, and a partially-eaten pickle!
In “The Starving Games,” Friedberg and Seltzers sixth cinematic spoof of popular box-office hits, the prolific parody duo has its sights trained on the adventure blockbuster “The Hunger Games”! Its all the laughs and half the calories as they sling dozens of cock-eyed, barbed arrows at sci-fi, action and fantasy films from “The Avengers” and “Oz The Great and Powerful” to pop culture characters and celebrities like Harry Potter and Taylor Swift.
