Festive horror film hits streets
IF you were out and about in Glasgow this weekend, you may have noticed some not-so-festive characters prowling the streets.
Zombies and the undead took to Buchanan Street, the Argyle Arcade and the Christmas market, hoping to terrify shoppers – and encourage them to attend viewings of one of the most out-there Christmas horror films.
Described as a Shaun Of The Dead and La La Land mash-up, Anna and the Apocalypse is headed to the Glasgow Film Theatre for two more viewings on December 16 and 19.
Directed by John McPhail and starring Ella Hunt and Malcolm Cumming, the alternative festive film is based on the Bafta-award winning short by Ryan McHenry.
It tells the story of a sleepy town threatened by a zombie apocalypse at Christmastime, forcing a gang of teens to fight, slash and sing to survive.
Since its release in 2018, the Scottish horror-musical has attracted praise from critics across the world, with one remarking it has cult classic “written all over it”.
A Blu-ray double disc edition of the film has been launched.
