Mimesis features an excellent premise: a group of people take hostages, dress up as zombies, and enact a recreation of Night of the Living Dead in which they actually kill their victims. But despite some solid moments, the film never quite reaches its potential. Still, an entertaining and somewhat original horror film that deviates from the mainstream zombie film.

Surprisingly good in my opinion. Not that it was anything great but I was expecting it to be mediocre at best and probably awful. The concept is intriguing if pretty unbelievable. Most of the acting is just okay but none is really bad. Sid Haig is amusing in a cameo role. The special effects are unimpressive and likely to greatly disappoint blood and gore fans. All-in-all an entertaining if not very memorable movie.
