Select cities across the US are getting spoiled rotten this month with a special Zombie Walk and a screening of Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead in Houston, TX, Myrtle Beach, SC and Flint, MI. The homage film to George Romero is already a best-selling DVD and VOD for Anchor Bay Entertainment, featuring screen icons like Sid Haig and Courtney Gains who encounter a group of horror fanatics enacting their favourite cult classic. Written and directed by Douglas Schulze (who is already working on the sequel), Mimesis is now picking up a fanatic following of its own.
The Flint screening was held yesterday, in cooperation with the Flint Zombie Walk; Mimesis will screen at the Houston Zombie Walk on May 12 and at the Myrtle Beach Zombie Walk on May 31.
Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr., both from Studio Amalgamated Dynamics, just launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance an upcoming creature feature, Harbinger Down, which will be created in the old Sci-fi and horror animatronic tradition.

Ghost greeted a metal-hungry Toronto crowd last night with an amazing mosh-inducing set at the Opera House. California doom troop, Ides of Gemini opened the show with a dark and heavy mix of songs, and once the stage was properly incensed, Papa Emeritus II and the Nameless Ghouls set about rocking the Toronto fans with their organ-laced brand of psychedelic and monstrously epic satanic rock.
The Swedish incognito ghouls played a selection of songs from their latest album, Infestissumam, including “Body and Blood,” “Year Zero” and the “Per Aspera Ad Inferi” along with crowd-pleasers from their inaugural album “Stand By Him,” “Prime Mover,” “Ritual” and several others before closing out the night with their anthemic “Monstrance Clock” for an encore. If anyone remembers their last show in Toronto, which didn’t have an encore, this return show was longer, louder and received much more reaction from the crowd.
