Douglas Schulze pays homage to the granddaddy of all zombies films 'Night Of the Living Dead' with 'Mimesis' which brings George Romero's classic back to life. The latest clip and images below give you an idea of what to expect when the film hits blu-ray dvd on February 12, 2013...just in time for Valentine's Day.
Mimesis has been working the film festival circuit since 2011 with a pretty good reception to its pretty cool concept. This one takes a bunch of Night Of the Living Dead zombie fans and throws them into a night of zombies. If that sounds up your alley, there's already a sequel ready for this one that involves vampires...but no Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen or Kristen Stewart's Vampire Bella thankfully!
[callout title=Mimesis Movie Synopsis]For over a century, fans have had their blood curdled and spins chilled by the vicarious thrills of horror films. Whether populated by ghouls, slashers, zombies or vampires, fans flocked to have their pulse quickened and exercise their scream-generating skills. But one thing remained constant: eventually the story ended, because it was only a movie. What if it didn’t have to end? What if the next level of horror was to experience a horror film from the inside?
In the film, a group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a living nightmare that pays homage to a classic horror film. Seven complete strangers whose only common link is a love for classic era horror films are invited to attend an exclusive “horror fan” party at a remote farm. But as the sun sets, these strangers soon find themselves within a real life version of the 1968 George Romero cult horror classic Night of the Living Dead!
Starring genre favorites Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn, Back to the Future) and Sid Haig (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, The Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses), with a special cameo by original Night of the Living Dead star Bill Hinzman and featuring a song from the multi-platinum selling band Insane Clown Posse, Mimesis is already on its way to becoming the next great cult horror film! Fans will also have the opportunity to experience Mimesis at special event screenings across the country.
Starring: Courtney Gains, Allen Maldonado, and Gavin Grazer, along with Sid Haig and a special cameo by original “Night of the Living Dead” star Bill Hinzman.
Directed by: Douglas Schulze, with screenplay by Joshua Wagner and Schulze. Kurt Eli Mayry, Schulze and Gavin Grazer produced, with original music composed by Diego Navarro.[/callout]
