Anchor Bay just announced that they will release Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead on DVD and Blu-Ray February 12. In Mimesis, a group of people are involved in a role playing game that turns out to be real. The movie stars 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.
From the press release:
“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!”
Fans can purchase the Blu-ray for $24.99, and the DVD for $22.98 , with pre-book on January 16. Fans will also have the opportunity to experience Mimesis at special event screenings across the country. More details on screenings to come.
