High school problems? Zombies? Music? Too much! Hallow characters go off the wall; engaging in senseless violence, shattering the decent 20 minute setup. I liked 2 songs.

It's a shame that conceit doesn't get moving a little faster, because the first half hour of the film is dead weight.

ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is no doubt a crowd-pleaser that wears its heart on its bloody sleeve. That's fine and well, but a Christmas-zombie-musical has got to have a reason for its existence other than, "Well, this sounds fun!"

Some fun moments aside, as a whole, Anna and the Apocalypse just feels like one big missed opportunity.

The cast are a pleasant enough bunch but the film is tonally all over the place, being too violent for laughs and not funny enough to raise more than a smile.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

There are better zombie films and better musicals, and perhaps they work best apart for a reason.

Anna and the Apocalypse has the elements of being a good horror movie (zombies!), or a good musical (songs about zombies!), or a good Christmas movie (zombie Santa!). If only it knew which one it wanted to be.

The whole movie would be a hell of a lot more enjoyable if more of the gags landed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The homage to Edgar Wright's film, is the only moment in this film where the work is at the height of its premise. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 4, 2019
Sadly, much like the gait of the undead, the anodyne quality of the music gives the film a lurching, lifeless quality.

Anna and the Apocalypse ends up lacking the requisite bite to really make it fly as that quirky leftfield offering it so badly wants to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Anna and the Apocalypse does have its singular moments. On the whole, though, I'd say don't bite.
November 29, 2018
Like some features that originated as short movies, "Anna and the Apocalypse" never earns its longer running time.
December 5, 2018
A zombie musical comedy set at Christmas should be a can't miss. But this one isn't scary or funny; its characters are one-note, and the whole shebang - blah songs included - is emotionally flat.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

What's not to like about a zombie Christmas musical set in Scotland? More than you would imagine, as it turns out.
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 28, 2018
The result is a novelty item without much in the way of novelty, at least for anyone old enough to recognise the sources.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
November 26, 2018
The film's biggest problem is its inability to lend its clichés and tropes any dramatic thrust or satirical bite.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 14, 2018
... features some moments of inspired mischief and quirky genre twists, although the satire falls flat and the musical numbers aren't especially memorable.
November 29, 2018
The use of zombies as a coming-of-age metaphor is promising but ineffectively exploited and the gore is about as effective at disguising the film's overall dullness as a tacky bit of tinsel on a fake Christmas tree.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Anna and the Apocalypse is a gimmicky comedy that at least has two jokes. The punch line to both of those jokes is the same, but you have to take what you can get...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
