"Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead" Quickly Becomes a Cult Classic

Zombie Fans Need Their Next Fix and Flock to Retail to Become Part of the Next Evolution in Horror Classics

BEVERLY HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/13 -- Now that "The Walking Dead" season finale is behind us, zombie fans are becoming even more rabid. Well, there's something that seems to be keeping them at bay -- "Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead." Recently released by Anchor Bay Entertainment on Blu-ray™ and DVD as well as in limited theatrical release nationwide, Mimesis is quickly becoming a cult classic. Rising from the numerous horror conventions, thousands of zombie fans have been flocking to become part of the next evolution in horror classics that has reinvigorated the horror community. Various events have been held in Houston, Myrtle Beach, Fargo, Flint, Las Vegas with more being scheduled in the coming months and the film has already established itself as a fan and critical favorite from over 15 notable film festivals. "Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead" has received critical acclaim and has already become a unique part of the zombie community.

"Mimesis: Night of the Living Dead" stars genre favorites Sid Haig (Rob Zombie's Halloween, The Devil's Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses) and Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn, Back to the Future), with a special cameo by original Night of the Living Dead star Bill Hinzman and featuring a song from the multi-platinum selling band Insane Clown Posse.

Why watch a horror film when you can live one? For over a century, fans have had their blood curdled and spins chilled by the vicarious thrills of horror films. Whether populated by ghouls, slashers, zombies or vampires, fans flocked to have their pulse quickened and exercise their scream-generating skills. But one thing remained constant: eventually the story ended, because it was only a movie. What if it didn't have to end? What if the next level of horror was to experience a horror film from the inside? According to Director Douglas Schulze, fans don't want it to end and have been reportedly adding Mimesis tattoos to their bodies, showing up at retail stores in zombie gear (they are just dressed up, right?) and hitting midnight screenings in support of the film.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
