Thanks to Die Hard, it’s become perfectly acceptable for an action film to also be a great Christmas movie. But action only goes so far, and today’s fans need more from their cinema experience. Perhaps some singing and Christmas zombies could brighten up the tired holiday movie genre. Amazingly, this movie already exists. Anna and the Apocalypse is almost everything we love wrapped up in a single film. Deadline has debuted the first official teaser, and it looks like the action zombie Christmas mash up of our dreams!
The first thing we want to know is how this film managed to stay completely under our radar until now. (Also, sidebar, the leading actress, Ella Hunt, apparently appeared in a movie called Our Robot Overlords, which we must see immediately.) For this film, Hunt is playing Anna, a high school student who has to fight and sing her way through the zombie apocalypse when the undead turn Christmas into a deadly holiday. Anna and the Apocalypse was directed by John McPhail, and it received its world premiere on Friday, September 22 at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. So far, everything we’re seeing in this trailer is amazing, and even the poster is a brilliantly realized image that combines Christmas with the living impaired.
Seeing this trailer has us hoping for a Christmas miracle. We don’t want to wait a year to see Anna and the Apocalypse in theaters, we want to see it this holiday season! Actually, we want to see it right now, but we’ll happily wait to watch this movie in the glory of a big screen theater. This is so delightfully insane that we’re ridiculously excited that it even exists.
