‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ is an upcoming musical comedy that tells the age-old high school tale of lunchroom drama, singing in the halls, and fighting zombies! A bloody new clip from the film shows viewers that there is no time for petty arguments when zombies are attacking your town.
‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ is based on a BAFTA award-winning short film appropriately titled ‘Zombie Musical.’ John McPhail directed the film that was written by Alan McDonald and the late Ryan McHenry. Original music by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly will provide the soundtrack. Read on for the full synopsis of ‘Anna and the Apocalypse:’
Teenage Anna’s life is typical enough. Chafing against the narrow horizons of her small town, she dreams of bigger things. It’s not so much that she doesn’t love her friends and family — she does — it’s just that they’re all so… familiar. So typical. So predictable. Her childhood best friend aches for a romance that she has no interest in, no matter how close they might be. The school jock that she had a fling with is proving to be disappointingly predictable in his behavior. And it’s becoming progressively harder for Anna to conceal her disappointment with just how satisfied her widower-father is with the blue collar simplicity of his never-changing existence. And then it all goes to shit.
The night of the high school Christmas concert marks the arrival of the undead in Anna’s small town. And so begins a struggle to band together and survive. Future dreams are forced aside by the overwhelming need to survive the present in this winning Scottish musical-horror-comedy.
‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ opens in theaters on November 30, 2018. Check out the new clip below!
