We’re delighted to announce our very first feature film, zombie apocalypse comedy musical, Anna And The Apocalypse. In this gleeful mashup, Anna and her friends must fight – and sing – their way through a zombie invasion to reach the supposed safety of their school, not knowing if their parents and friends will still be alive when they get there.
Starring Ella Hunt (Our Robot Overlords) as Anna, with Mark Benton (The Halcyon) as her father Tony and Paul Kaye (Game Of Thrones) as the wicked antagonist Savage. Rounding out the ensemble cast are newcomers Malcolm Cumming, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Ben Wiggins and Marli Siu. Ryan McHenry, who wrote and directed the BAFTA winning 2010 short film Zombie Musical upon which it is based, wrote the original script with Alan McDonald. McHenry was best known for creating internet sensation ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’. Directing duties have now been taken on by John McPhail, the award-wi/nning director of last year’s festival hit Where Do We Go From Here.
Anna and the Apocalypse is supported by Creative Scotland.

When the zombie apocalypse hits the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – teenager Anna and her high school friends have to fight, sing and dance to survive, with the undead horde all around them. Teaming up with her best friend John, Anna has to fight her way through zombified snowmen, Santas, elves and Christmas shoppers to get across town to the high school, where they’ll be safe. But they soon discover that being a teenager is just as difficult as staying alive, even at the end of the world.
