20130203-220759.jpgWho the hell doesn’t like zombies these days? It seems that zombies are the new black. Hell even my kids love em. I think what most people don’t realize is that your average garden variety zombie is nothing less than a decaying, undead, disease ridden cannibal intent upon one thing…..Feasting on your fucking flesh (or brains, depending on which films your into). They’re not all the rage, or “the in thing”, they are nothing more than dead, rotting ex humans spreading apocalyptic disease. Here is a gallery of six completely random, but cool, zombies.

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!
