Anna and the Apocalypse
Official Selection

In this gleeful mashup boasting a 90% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Anna and her friends must fight – and sing – their way through a zombie invasion to reach the supposed safety of their school, not knowing if their parents and friends will still be alive when they get there.

It’s Christmas in the sleepy Scottish town of Little Haven, but far from yuletide joy, what’s started to spread in the town is an undead horde in relentless pursuit. Teaming up with her friends, Anna must fight her way through zombified snowmen, a ravenous bachelor party and high school hormones to try and save family and faculty alike. But the teens soon discover that the only people they can truly rely on are each other.

Based on John McPhail’s BAFTA-winning short Zombie Musical, the film is co-written by the late Ryan McHenry, who earned viral fame from his “Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal” videos. The original music by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly will be stuck in your heads for weeks. An offbeat Scottish comedy, this one is primed to become a midnight movie cult classic.
