Anchor Bay Entertainment has officially announced that they have acquired Us and Canadian distribution rights for Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead. The indie horror film revolves around “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: Night of the Living Dead was directed by Doug Schulze and stars Courtney Gains, Allen Maldonado, Gavin Grazer, and Sid Haig. According to Blu-ray.com, Anchor Bay will release the film to Blu-ray/DVD early next year and has set a preliminary release date of February 12th.

The Wrap says that Anchor Bay is “planning a series of special exhibitions for the picture”, so we should be looking at a limited theatrical release or some convention stops in January/February. We’ll have more details as »
