Anna and the Apocalypse rated R for zombie violence & gore

Last month it was announced that Orion had picked up the North Ameican distribution rights to John McPhail’s zombie holiday musical ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE for a release "during the holidays."

And today it seems like they are keeping to their word as the film has just been submitted to the MPAA and has snagged an R rating for " zombie violence and gore, language, and some sexual material."

Sounds like some good reasons to sport the old Rated R sticker, huh? Works for me. What do you think? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media.


Ella Hunt (Our Robot Overlords) stars as the titular Anna alongside Mark Benton and Paul Kaye (Game Of Thrones). The film focuses on a zombie apocalypse that is threatening the sleepy town of Little Haven during Christmas. The undead forces Anna and her high school friends to fight, sing and slash their way to survival with a fast-spreading horde out that are hungry for their blood. Teaming up with her best friend John, 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. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and the only people they can truly rely on are each other.

The film is directed by John McPhail (Where Do We Go From Here?) from a script written by Alan McDonald and Ryan McHenry and stars Ella Hunt, Mark Benton, and Paul Kaye.

ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is slated to hit theaters "during the holidays."
