For some reason, I hadn’t realised Anna and the Apocolypse was a Christmas Movie. But it is and perfect for the darker nights and Christmasy feelings that filter into your horror world. With singing and zombie killings, this movie is a fun and sparkly addition to your Christmas watching. So grab a candy cane, a hot chocolate, and maybe some ice cream with raspberry sauce for this one.

Anna and the Apocalypse Review Conclusion
I might watch it again -This movie had a bit of a Shaun of the Dead feel but with singing and dancing throughout. And you’d be surprised what Christmas decorations can be used as weapons. I’m not particularly one for musicals so it didn’t have me singing along but I enjoyed the humour. The focus was less on the zombies than the relationships the characters had to each other and the issues they were dealing with -but not in a particularly deep way. A good, fun movie for the time of year that blends a little horror with a little Christmas sparkle and a very large candy cane.
A young woman with a promise to keep.
Another with a curse to lift.
And a werewolf looking for a new mate.
When Alice invited her friends, Sarah, Paul, and Dave to stay in her Grandmother’s Romanian farmstead they were expecting to take a break from studying and have a good time. Of course, that wasn’t the only reason Alice was there but her friends didn’t need to be involved in that. And she could happily show them where her family was from. And the town where she had spent her summers without them ever suspecting anything.
But then they meet the hunter, the werewolves catch their scent, and Sarah reveals a secret that could end her friendship with Alice and spell disaster for all of them.
