Anna and the Apocalypse is set to bring a musical zombie apocalypse to the U.S. and U.K. November 30. Described as “Shaun of the Dead meets La La Land,” the film stars Ella Hunt, Malcolm Cumming, and Sarah Swire.
In the film that parodies the horror film genre, a zombie apocalypse threatens the town of Little Haven at Christmastime, and Anna and her friends need to fight back to reach their families and friends in time. Written by Alan McDonald and Ryan McHenry and directed by John McPhail, the movie features music by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly.
The film first premiered in 2017 at the Fantastic Fest before a run at the 2018 Edinburgh International Film Festival and moving on to film fests in South Korea and Canada.
The cast is also set to perform at this year's Elsie Fest alongside the company of the Broadway-bound Be More Chill, founder Darren Criss, Tony winner Sutton Foster, Joshua Henry, Alex Newell, and more.
