Orion will distribute zombie-musical Anna and the Apocalypse in theaters

One of the top movies I missed this past year was John McPhail’s zombie holiday musical ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE. I've heard stellar things about the flick, but never caught a screening.

That may all change this coming holiday season as it was just announced via Deadline that Orion Pictures has picked up North Ameican distribution rights to the horror-comedy musical.

Producer Naysun Alae-Carew:

The Orion logo was on the front of so many of our favorite films growing up. It’s a real honor that Anna and the Apocalypse will join the ranks of the films that inspired us. We are elated to have a partner in Orion that is as passionate about our film as we are.

Are you excited to finally check out this strange (but supposedly f*cking delightful) flick? 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."
