Anna and the Apocalypse (2018)

John McPhail directs Ella Hunt, Sarah Swire and Paul Kaye in this Christmas set romantic comedy zombie musical where a small Scottish town is besieged by your standard infected ghouls.

A sweet undemanding movie that feels just a little too cynically calculated in the amount of popular boxes it wants to tick. Shaun of the Dead meets Glee meets your Christmas perennial release. Only not as funny or as spectacular or as well acted as any of those cribbed influences. Doesn’t really ever put a foot wrong but equally never actually gets the pulse going or catches you by surprise as it mashes-up its various obvious homages inoffensively.
