    Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead movie scenes

    Director Douglas Shulze conceived the idea for the film after attending horror conventions and seeing costumed fans who took their in-character roleplaying too far. The film is not meant as a remake; instead, Schulze wanted to address themes of obsessed fans.

    Release

    Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead premiered at the Blue Water Film Festival on October 7, 2011. Sid Haig attended the event.

    Anchor Bay Entertainment released it on home video on February 12, 2013.

    Reception

    Dennis Harvey of Variety wrote that the film is "just sporadically scary, yet the plot's twists and turns keep viewers hooked." Rod Lott of the Oklahoma Gazette called it a pointless, shoddy remake of Night of the Living Dead. Steve Barton of Dread Central rated it 3/5 stars and called it "a movie with an excellent premise that's executed in the most standard of ways." Adam Tyner of DVD Talk rated it 3/5 stars and called it "an uneven but surprisingly effective homage". Patrick Naugle of DVD Verdict called it "a movie with a semi-interesting plot but uninspired execution."
