I love Sid Haig and zombie movies. I thought this would be a great film, but...

The best way to watch this film is not to read the title or any review. The title lets you know that the whole zombie scene is a set up. The film would have been better served if the title and box description didn't give so much away and if the film stayed in character longer. In my opinion this would have been a better film if they would have stolen "Cabin in the Woods" scenario where the zombies would be real under the control of people. The film seemed to end just when it was getting started.

Note: Never eat someone else's bloody body organs raw as there is a bevy of blood borne pathogens out there.

An underdog review here. This film is being unfairly treated. I'm an avid horror fan and eat horror for breakfast. I've seen countless horror films and this one is far from bad. Is it an instant classic? No. Don't set your expectations too high. Classics become classics in large part because they are few and far between. Just because a film isn't at that level doesn't make it bad. To appreciate this film, you really need to avoid spoilers like the plague, as the movie intends for you to see through the POV of the main characters and discover things as they do. The beginning of the film is subpar and I was worried that it might stink. I kept an open mind and then when the action started I was confused as to whether it was a back door remake (with music video zombies) and if so, what's the point? But I stayed with the characters and continued to try to puzzle things out as they did and then the film turned a corner. The third part is where they came out guns blazing and you understand the "why" of the film. Just as the characters do. If you give up on the film before the end, or judge it negatively prematurely, you might not receive the payoff. The best way to approach this film is to let it take you for a ride. Compared to many other new releases that are truly lame, Mimesis is a fun watch. It also tries to be creative, evident in the concept and the vivid use of colors and other striking visuals. The production values were very good. The acting was adequate. The approach to characterization was that the characters are pretty much pawns in a game and so not really fleshed out. Its more about the action than the characters. Even still, I came to care about a couple of them. The plot was pretty straightforward even though it puzzled me at times (as I tried to figure out what animal it was). All in all, Mimesis did its job. It kept up the tension, gave some good horror scenes, and kept me surprised through to the end, which is hard to do.

As a diehard Zombie fan that has (regrettably) watched every zombie movie I can possibly find, and then realized that I have invested countless hours on terrible movies just hoping for an entertaining or new take on the zombie flick, I have to say that this one did not disappoint me at all. Sure, it could have had better acting, but overall, the idea was perfect!

I didn't know what to expect when it came to this movie but I actually enjoyed it.
It was nice to see a different take instead of just another remake.
It's not the greatest movie ever made but it's still very enjoyable, much better than a lot of other movies being released to theaters.

although, in the end, the young and younger women redeem themselves. Still, this is a gore flick for teenagers. There was some credible acting, particularly the young black man, and some truly creepy acting from the crazy boys. When all was said and done, however, while it was an interesting idea, this film focused too much on gore and new ways to die and not enough on plot and story. No film for serious zombie flicks freaks.

the film is silly, it has nothing to do with NOTLD and is simply way to make a few quick bucks off the name. don't bother
