The zombie flick Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu Ray on February 12th, and its creators want to celebrate the event in true zombie fashion. They would like us all to contribute to the zombie crawl to end all zombie crawls! Check out the details below:
Tuesday, February 12th marks the unveiling of Anchor Bay’s zombie-themed, MIMESIS: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and, to celebrate the nationwide release, we’re calling for a “National Day of the Mimesis,” says director Douglas Schulze. “We’re asking zombie fans to show their support by putting on their best zombie attire and shambling their way to a retail store to buy a copy of the DVD/Blu-ray release. Zombies are encouraged to have their visits and purchases recorded so they can be posted on our official Facebook page for a chance to be cast in the upcoming sequel, MIMESIS 2, which is scheduled for production late in 2013. National Day of the Mimesis will be an event to behold. All are welcome to join in; just be creative and respectful and may the best zombie win!
Call your friends, call your fiends, and organize an event! If you would like more information about this event, contact the folks behind the movie at their Facebook page (linked posted above). Also, take a peak at the red band trailer posted below:

So what else does this movie have going for it outside of an original concept? It has Sid Haig. I love that man.
