Anchor Bay Entertainment has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead from Dead Weight Productions, the film’s executive producer told TheWrap.
The film has been screening in roughly 25 film festivals and conventions over the past year and getting good buzz from the thrills and chills crowd, Seth Willenson, the executive producer said. “It centers on a group of horror fans who engage in a role playing game that emulates classic movies from the genre. In true horror fashion, the game in question takes some gory turns that seem straight out of a George A. Romero splatter-fest.”
Mimesis stars Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) and Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn).
The film was directed by Doug Schulze (Dark Fields).
