Fes­tive hor­ror film hits streets

Evening Times - - NEWS -

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.
