Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Zombie movies are cool. Holiday movies are cool. High school musicals are cool. Anna and the Apocalypse is the unholy genre mash-up that begs the question: why not all three? This rowdy zom-com takes place in a small Scottish town, where Anna (Ella Hunt) and her teenage cohorts go from trying to survive school to singing and dancing their way through a full-blown outbreak of the undead. Funny, festive, gory, and toe-tappingly catchy, this movie proves that the best defense against a zombie apocalypse is a smile and a song. And also: weapons.

It's like high school musical switched genres and tried to do an homage to shaun of the dead. Cast could really belt and the musical numbers were strong and catchy. Choreography was a little off but it could've been on purpose since they are just supposed to be school kids. Great villain song. Not very cliche as these types usually fall victim to, and was actually heartfelt and had a message about taking people for granted. Liked it quite a lot!

Anna and the Apocalypse is a delightful Christmas/horror/comedy/musical hybrid, with a great cast, entertaining gore and a storyline that’s easy to take seriously… even though it’s fundamentally absurd.

This schlocky horror picture show combines a zesty young cast with an infectious comic energy.

It may be a touch overlong – perhaps because everyone has to stop running to sing songs at regular intervals – and the emotional beats familiar, with moments of poignance, tragedy, gruesome comedy (a decapitated zombie in a snowman suit) and absurdity.
