Douglas Schulze's Mimesis Night Of the Living Dead hits next week, and a couple lucky readers can get their hands on a blu-ray copy just in time for it's release. If you didn't catch this on the film festival circuit, you're in for a fun treat! It's a true homage to George Romero's classic Night Of the Living Dead and any horror can will appreciate this one.
If you're not familiar with this film, it takes a bunch of Night Of the Living Dead zombie fans and throws them into a night of zombies. Pretty simple storyline, but those always make the best horror films. There's also a sequel on the way and this time it'll be involving vampires...then maybe they can get Joe Manganiello to work his wolf site for the finale in what could be a great trilogy. Any True Blood fan will agree to that one.
You can also pre-order this underground cult hit too. After seeing it on the circuit, I can't wait to check it out again on blu-ray!

[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]
