'Mimesis' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Fri Jan 4, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The independent horror film from director/co-writer Douglas Schulze is planned for Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Mimesis' for Blu-ray on February 12.

A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game 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 living a real life version of the cult horror classic, Night of the Living Dead. The strangers all bare a striking resemblance to the cast members from the Romero classic and waiting just outside the boarded up farmhouses, a group of demented sociopaths eager to 'mimic' the flesh eating zombies. Why watch a horror film when you can live one?

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include an audio commentary with director/co-writer Douglas Schulze and co-writer Joshua Wagner.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
