Shot on location in Scotland, Anna and the Apocalypse enjoyed its UK premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, receiving both critical praise and a nomination for the coveted Audience Award. At FrightFest, lead actress Ella Hunt was named Screen FrightFest Genre Rising Star 2018, and the film has also been nominated for Best Film and Best Actress [Ella Hunt] at the Scottish BAFTAs. We have the brand new trailer for the film below.
Anna and the Apocalypse is an alternative Christmas adventure you won’t forget, with blood-thirsty Santas, zombified faculty members and original songs you’ll be singing ‘til New Year.
A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – forcing Anna and her high school friends to fight, sing and slash their way to survival with a fast-spreading undead horde in relentless pursuit.
Teaming up with her best friend John, Anna and her crew fight their way through zombified snowmen, a ravenous bachelor party and high school hormones to try and save family and faculty alike. But they soon discover that no-one is safe in this new world, and the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
This gleeful mashup introduces British and international talent including Ella Hunt, Malcolm Cumming, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Ben Wiggins and Marli Siu alongside British comedy stars Mark Benton and Paul Kaye. Anna and the Apocalypse is directed by John McPhail, written by Alan McDonald and Ryan McHenry and produced by Blazing Griffin in association with Parkhouse Pictures, supported by Creative Scotland. Watch the two versions of the new trailer below (the second is billed as the ‘extreme’ version), and check out our review from FrightFest over here.
