Early last month, we reported that Anchor Bay had picked up an inventive spin on NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD called MIMESIS. Today we've got more to share, including the home video release date and cover art (seen to the right).
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, MIMESIS comes at us on FEBRUARY 12th on both Blu-ray and DVD.
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!
According to Anchor Bay, fans will have the opportunity to experience MIMESIS at special event screenings across the country, although no further details are available.
