It's a high school film. It's a Christmas film. It's a zombie film. It's a musical. Anna and the Apocalypse is all these things and it plays in cinemas nationwide just in time for the festive season.

"Anna" registers as more than just a throwaway novelty item thanks to simple yet highly effective emotional underpinnings.

Like some features that originated as short movies, "Anna and the Apocalypse" never earns its longer running time.

Here's the holiday musical you're looking for - if, say, you like a splash of gore and a parade of flesh-eating zombies between musical numbers. Eat your heart out, Mary Poppins!

...a zom com that attempts to gnaw on something a little different.

Slick and stylish, with moments of gore that are played for gross-out and laughs in equal measure. You will hum along, you will tap your toes, if you're a big softy like me, you'll cry, but you will definitely have a great time.

[It's] charming, often clever, and unexpectedly moving, too.
