Anna and the Apocalypse
Presented as part of Here There be Monsters! a series of spine-tingling film screenings & events taking place in Brighton & Hove and Lewes.
Join us for a Winter Solstice screening as the longest hours of darkness draw in, whilst exploring a moment of change and chance of rebirth. Join us to watch Anna and her friends fight, slash and sing their way through the apocalypse, including decapitating undead snowmen.
This stylistic and frenzied horror-comedy-musical follows adventurous Anna, who is ready to take a gap year to see the world and leave her sleepy home-town in Scotland. On the night of the school Christmas show a Zombie infection starts spreading. Screened at Fabrica, in the Holy Trinity Church building adorned at Christmas, thrilling and hilarious viewing for a Zombie apocalypse.
“How many other Christmas-themed horror comedy musicals have such catchy songs, smart jokes sprinkled throughout suspenseful moments, and an ensemble dedicated to pulling it off?…It’s one of those rare horror movies to leave you with good holiday cheer.” Roger Ebert
Prior to our feature screening we will be showing a short reel of handpicked animation to chill your bones (and make you smile), co-presented by One Bum Cinema Club.
