Cinedigm provided media samples of Anna and the Apocalypse and Canal Street.
ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE, now on DVD is a perfect stocking stuffer to add to your holiday shopping list.
A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – forcing Anna and her friends to fight, slash and sing their way to survival, facing the undead in a desperate race to reach their loved ones. But they soon discover that no one is safe in this new world, and with civilization falling apart around them, the only people they can truly rely on are each other.
ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE stars a breakout Ella Hunt (Robot Overlords, Cold Feet) alongside a buzzy up-and-coming cast including Malcolm Cumming, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux, Ben Wiggins and Marli Siu. With original music from Scottish writing duo Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly, Anna and the Apocalypse is, “a cult classic in the making” (Bustle).
More laughs than scares in this one. This comedic zombie musical leans more toward ‘Glee’ than it does toward ‘Walking Dead’, so pop the popcorn get the karaoke mike ready and plan on belting out some tunes along with Anna and her friends as they crush zombies with an oversized candy cane.
Available on Amazon.com for as low as $9.96.
