The Hunger Games

March 25, 2012 at the Cinemark Merriam. We will meet in the theater lobby at 4:00 PM for the 4:50 PM showing. Remember it is only $4.00. Bring your teens - they probably read the books. Even though this film is not strictly horror genre there are horrific elements to the story. Plus if you are planning on going to KICK ME: The Flesh and Blood Show at the Screenland Crossroads on 3/24/12 you will get a chance to see Battle Royale. After seeing Battle Royale you can compare it to The Hunger Games which has a similar story line.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she's ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. -- (C) Lionsgate
