Extra Host/filmmaker Maria Menounos' "Adventures of Serial Buddies" Arrives on DVD

Los Angeles, CA, Sep 19, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- ADVENTURES OF SERIAL BUDDIES, the first serial killer buddy comedy, stars an eclectic cast including Christopher Lloyd, Beth Behrs, Henry Winkler, Artie Lange, Kathie Lee Gifford, Chris McDonald, Menounos and introducing comic newcomers from Improv Olympic and the Groundlings. After a successful multi-city theatrical release in the Spring with AMC Theaters, "Adventures of Serial Buddies" is now available on DVD at the following participating carriers: Target, Amazon.Com, 7-11 stores, Netflix, Barnes & Noble, Blockbuster, Family Video, Baker & Taylor, DVD Empire, Entertainment Outlet, Movies Unlimited, F.Y.E, Video Products Distributors, Wax Work Video, Direct Brands Inc, Video Warehouse, Critics Choice Video and Bull Moose.

Former MTV Head Writer Keven Undergaro--- who spent a decade working as a 'carnie' in the carnival business--- penned the story based on a 'SERIAL BUDDY' he himself befriended. "One season in the carnie business I became really good friends with a coworker only to discover later he was a sociopathic killer." "The world Keven grew up in inspired such a funny, fresh and original voice for moviemaking. ADVENTURES OF SERIAL BUDDIES blends elements of South Park, John Waters and Kevin Smith, while maintaining a voice that is uniquely, hilariously, it's own", said Maria Menounos. "Keven, myself and our team have a slate of mainstream films from action to comedy that we are currently packaging. We see this as a great model for other filmmakers to follow." Access Hollywood's Scott "Movie" Mantz calls Adventures of Serial Buddies "seriously funny! Wacky twisted fun." "An underground favorite and wild ride. The most deranged, insane, hilarious and surprising buddy movie about serial killers and clowns -- a fearless farce for fans of funny...and that's a lot of F's" said film critic and entertainment journalist Ben Lyons. Katherine Tulich of the Hollywood Foreign Press says it "reminded me of great Aussie comedies like Priscilla Queen of the Desert or Muriel's Wedding. Quirky individual characters who go on the road and into your hearts." John Campea of AMC Movie News describes it as "Dexter meets Dumb and Dumber with lethal charm and fun."
