Mimesis (2013)

Some fans at a horror convention are invited to a party later that night.  It's an exclusive party that is hush hush and by invitation only.  After following directions, they end up at an isolated farm in the middle of nowhere.

The next morning the attendees wake up dressed in different clothing and in different places.  After an attack on two of the party goers by what appears to be a zombie, they end up at an old farmhouse where others are already in hiding. No one knows what's going on or who they can trust.

One guy realizes their experience is paralleling the movie, Night of the Living Dead, right down to their clothing, characters, and farm house location.  That's a shame since none of the characters from the film made it out alive. As the shambling zombie attack commences, our small group tries to figure out what's going on and how to make it out alive.

When I saw the trailer for this and heard the synopsis, it sounded like it had the potential to be really good.  Unfortunately it didn't live up to it's potential.  I expected something really clever since all the characters were supposed to be a horror fans and they somehow ended up in the father of all zombie movies. But it was just average. I suppose there's nothing wrong with being average, but I expected more.
