We know what you’re thinking: just when will someone make a zombie Christmas musical?!
Never fear, because Scottish director John McPhail has done just that with his new movie Anna and the Apocalypse that hits UK and US cinemas on November 30.
We’ve seen it and it’s absolutely terrific, packed full of laughs, blood, emotion and massive songs and with a star-making lead turn from Ella Hunt. Even if you’re “not a musical person”, you will probably find yourself being won over by its charm.
Based on BAFTA-winning short Zombie Musical, Anna and the Apocalypse follows a group of friends as they try to survive an undead horde, and stars Malcolm Cumming, Mark Benton and Game of Thrones‘ Paul Kaye.
Along the way, Anna and her crew come across zombified snowmen, a manic bachelor party and, the most dangerous thing of all, teenage hormones, as they soon discover the only people they can rely on are each other.
We think the voiceover in the trailer describes the movie best though, thanks to its spin on the classic Christmas poem.
“Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Young Anna was nestled, all snug in her bed, not knowing tomorrow, she’d meet the undead,” it goes.
“How would she survive what the season would bring? Well, that’s simple. She’d stab, she’d slash and she’d sing.”
Anna and the Apocalypse is unleashed into UK and US cinemas on November 30.
