For Anna and her friends, high school graduation can’t come soon enough. Unfortunately for them, they must face a horde of yuletide undead creatures before passing on to adulthood. A zombie apocalypse-Christmas-comedy-musical (yes, you read that right), “Anna” is a salute to a genre you didn’t think you needed, while keeping you on the edge of your seat with its hilarity and heart.

Ella Hunt delivers an all-time musical and acting performance, propelling a genre Robert Wise mastered, but for Millennial’s era. A perfect closing night film filled with fun and scary moments, Anna and the Apocalypse also delivers some of the catchiest songs we’ve heard in ages. Are you ready for a Christmas infused, zombie hilariopocalypse musical galore?—Hugues Barbier
