West Coast Premiere

The tiny town of Little Haven is preparing for the Christmas holidays: there’s the usual family arguments, the school Christmas show that needs to be perfect and also the zombie apocalypse!

For the teenagers at this high school, they’re going to need everything in their arsenal to survive this all-singing, all-dancing violent zombie bonanza. At first glance the idea of a zombie apocalypse musical might seem odd, but John McPhail’s brilliant gem proves that what every horror film lacks is a brilliant musical number.

Set in a sleepy Scottish hamlet on the eve of the Christmas holiday, a group of teenagers and their parents, teachers and the rest of the town residents find themselves facing down a good old-fashioned zombie apocalypse, all the while dealing with the emotional complexities of the holiday season, growing up, growing old, loneliness and much, much more.

Capturing a sense of youth without ever condescending, ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is the kind of film you encounter every once in a blue moon: a genuine genre breakout hit that will appeal not only to fans, but to an even wider audience with its heartfelt core. Do not miss this incredible screening!
