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!"
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 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.
