Review: Anna and the Apocalypse

Anna and the Apocalypse is a fun film and, those fancying a giggle could do a lot worse than this.

Anna and the Apocalypse review

Fun addition to the zombie mashup canon, with secondary-school pupil Anna battling the undead with showtunes.

Anna And The Apocalypse review

Open up this delightful early Christmas present which blends wide-eyed romance, knowing comedy, zombie horror action, festive spirit and catchy tunes. It's a mixed bag in the best of ways.

Ross Miller, The National (Scotland), 1st December 2018

Taking a formalistically rigorous approach to its genre-mashing premise, Scottish zombie-themed Christmas high school musical Anna and the Apocalypse operates rather like an end-of-term festive show made by spirited amateurs blissfully unaware of its general naffness. Director John McPhail has admitted in interviews he didn't really like musicals before signing on to make it, and that shows in the lifeless choreography, which is more filler than Thriller, something not helped by the disappointingly banal X Factor-style songs (by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly) and a weak script that lets the cast's haircuts do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to characterisation. As for the horror elements, the use of zombies as a coming-of-age metaphor is promising but ineffectively exploited and the gore is about as effective at disguising the film's overall dullness as a tacky bit of tinsel on a fake Christmas tree.
