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 »

Mimesis 2011 Port Huron Michigan 10-07-2011 Premier
Just saw the premier showing of this last night at the McMorran Complex in Port Huron, Michigan. All (or most of) the actors and actresses were at the showing which made it all that much more interesting. I have to say that I enjoyed this movie very much, even if it were a little bit on the "campy" side. But perhaps that is because I am biased. I am also a big fan of the original Night of the Living Dead Romero Classic from the late 1960's. This movie was made on similar budget as that, albeit updated to the current price of movie making as compared to 40 or so years ago. The effects were good enough to grab most of the audiences attention as far as the reactions went, including myself! It was nearly a sold out movie theater, and I can tell you from the unemployment in this part of the world that is a rare thing in this town for sure! Let me say that it gave me a bit of the "Halloween Spirit" that I haven't had for a few years now. Dare I say it made me giddy? Anyways, I would definitely recommend this indie as a must see for the low(er) budget horror flick fan.
