Anna and the Apocalypse is an odd movie. I imagine it came about when a zombie movie fan decided he’d make a movie that his girlfriend would watch.
His girlfriend’s favorite movie is Mama Mia.
What do you get when you mix a zombie movie and a musical? Well, the answer is Anna and the Apocalypse. The music is actually pretty good, but things fall apart a little when the violence start. The shift from peppy musical to violent zombie movie is a bit jarring. I was actually getting into the musical part (Ella Hunt is an amazing actress and singer) and you start to root for the love story, when things, well, go about the way you’d expect with a zombie movie.
So, was the movie worth watching? Yes, don’t let my 55/100 score keep you from watching Anna and the Apocalypse. It is a decent, watchable movie, but it felt a little like it wasn’t quite true to itself, and worse, it doesn’t know exactly what it is. Is it a peppy musical that just happens to have zombies? Or is it a zombie movie that happens to have some musical numbers? I think it could have worked as one or the other, but not both.
