Stefanie von Pfetten,
Besides the obvious scene recreation and clips used from the original Night of the Living Dead, this movie is just one big homage to the 60s classic. Several characters are named after cast/crew members of the original Night of the Living Dead (Duane/Duane Jones, Judith/Judy O'Dea & Judith Ridley, Russell/Russ Streiner, Keith/Keith Wayne, Karl/Karl Hardman, Kyra/Kyra Schon, Marilyn/Marilyn Eastman) and a few others are named after characters (Judith/Judy, Karen, Benjamin/Ben). Additionally, Bill Hinzman, who was in the original NotLD has a cameo in this film. See more »

Really loved the idea of this movie, but it just never got off the ground running. I kept watching Mimesis because it was really giving respect and praises to the original Night of the Living Dead. But the movie didn't really do anything that made me feel anything other than reminding me that I love the original Living Dead. I think that it had potential but because of the low budget, it didn't get there. Plus some of the acting got so bad that it was distracting. Wouldn't be a big deal to pass on this one.
