Mimesis (2011) on IMDb

I just stumbled across Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead this morning while surfing Youtube and thought I’d post it. The film is set for a February 12 DVD/Blu-Ray release, while a “sequel”, the unrealated Mimesis 2 is in the works, based on Nosferatu. Being a jaded zombie enthusiast, I am just fascinated by the constant re-imaginings and remakes of the mighty Romero classic, Night of the Living Dead. It seems every year or so a new (usually crappy) vision of NOTLD crops up from the dark corners of the interweb. From the horrible NOTLD 3D to the upcoming NOTLD: Resurrection (sigh), it seems that people will never tire of butchering the classic. Will Mimesis turn out to be another weak re-imagining or a fresh new take on a played out classic? Check out the trailer below, it does look pretty good. Here’s hoping…..

NOTLD Resurrection

Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection. 2013.

In 2012,the deceased have risen from their graves with only one instinct-to feed on the living. As the cities are over run and civilization crumbles, a family take refuge from the undead army in an isolated farmhouse in West Wales. Courtesy of IMDB.

Apparently this is a UK based remake of the original Romero classic. IMDB states that the budget for this flick is estimated at 50k pounds…..that is troubling. I enjoy remakes (ya I know……I’m not one of the haters) but I really don’t see any reason to butcher NOTLD yet again.  Two is enough.  Actually you know what ?   Slap a 50 million pound budget on this thing, attach Michael Bay to direct and produce; viola there’s your remake.  If your going to butcher something, butcher it right!  Anyway check the trailer…….yikes!
