There have been hundreds of musicals over the years,and it feels like just as many zombie flicks. But how many musical zombie films can you count? Anna and the Apocalypse is not only blazing that new trail, it's also got the hilarious, clever, and compelling chops to make it stick. With songs as catchy as the violence is gory, join Anna and her angsty friends as they fight, sing, and dance their way through the descending hordes of the undead and try to make it out of high school alive (there's a metaphor in there, I'm sure). If you loved Shaun of the Dead but thought it needed more showtunes (and weapons made out of giant candy canes), this fellow British import is the entertaining mayhem you seek. IN PERSON: Director John McPhail.
