Based on the 2010 BAFTA-winning short Zombie Musical, “Anna and the Apocalypse” takes place in Little Haven on Christmas as a zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town, forcing Anna, played by Ella Hunt, 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 (Malcolm Cumming), 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. The film features original music by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly. The film is set for theatrical release on Nov. 30.
The movie was screened at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival, and during her visit to Savannah, the star of the movie, Ella Hunt, sat down with WSAV to discuss the trials of making the film, how she almost turned down the role and the messages she hopes the movie will send to movie-goers.
