Teaming up with her best friend John, Anna and her crew fight their way through zombified snowmen, a manic 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.
Come with us to Rudolph's Christmas Tree Emporium where we go behind the scenes of "Scottish Christmas zombie musical teen comedy" Anna and the Apocalypse with producer Naysun Alae-Carew...
Pulling off the impossible...
I am so proud of what we have managed to achieve with Anna and the Apocalypse. Taking on such a mix of genres – musical, comedy, horror, action – all in the one film, was a pretty daunting task but I was lucky to have an amazingly talented team around me to pull off the impossible.
Amazing place, amazing crew...
Scotland is an amazing place to shoot and we had an amazing Scottish crew.
