Get ready for some cadaverous choir singing as genre fans are in for quite the Christmas Day treat this year. The Horror Channel has today announced that it will be celebrating the festivities premiering John McPhail’s infectious zombie musical ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE.
Starring Ella Hunt, Mark Benton and Paul Kaye, this pure gore delight with a mental, maniacal and magical edge finds Anna Shepherd (Hunt) looking forward to the end of high school. But whilst her widowed father has high hopes of her going straight to university, she has other plans – jet-setting around the world to experience life before settling down. Suddenly though, a zombie apocalypse threatens her sleepy Scottish town, forcing Anna and friends to struggle, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the living dead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. In a nutshell, think SHAUN OF THE DEAD gets FOOTLOOSE with HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL in a pure gore delight with a toe-tapping beat.
You can catch Horror Channel’s premiere of ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE at 21:00 on 25 December here: TV: Sky 317 / Virgin 149 / Freeview 70 / Freesat 138
