Anna and the Apocalypse • Trailer Rewind

Director:

For the last Trailer Rewind of the decade we wanted to bring you something fun to watch with friends. Or is it? Does a holiday setting make a film a holiday film? Is there such a thing as a zombie holiday film? In a genre that’s on its 3rd wave of popularity is it possible to create a fresh take?

Based on the trailer for Anna and The Apocalypse, Steve was ready to host a sing-along at his house. JJ is not a horror fan, but what about musicals? Will he have a song in his heart? A musical black comedy teen zombie film seems like a stretch. Does this mashup work, or does a story full of lifeless clichés keep this from becoming a lively and fresh take on a half-dead genre?

Countdown to the end of the decade, or to the end of the film, with us on this episode of Trailer Rewind.
