Singing for the Holidays with ‘Anna and the Apocalypse’! [Horror Queers Podcast]

Rom Com Zom Musical

After dealing with cryptids in The Mothman Prophecies, giallos in Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key and killer baby mamas in Inside (2007), we’re closing out our film coverage for the year with a holiday classic.

Director John McPhail‘s Anna and the Apocalypse finds a group of disaffected teens struggling with the usual holiday-related concerns (absent family, desire to escape, unrequited love for your best friend) but throws in the complication of a zombie apocalypse.

Oh and it’s a musical!

Come celebrate the holiday as we unpack all of the songs, the choreography and why Mr. Savage sucks.

Episode 261 – Anna and the Apocalypse (2017)

We’re tired of pretending that there’s no such thing as a Rom Com Zom Musical!

The time has finally come to discuss John McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse (2017), which has charming Scottish actors, a Canadian choreographer, and three (?!) different versions.

Plus: Joe’s issue with villainous Mr. Savage, our fave songs, the sad Ryan Gosling connection, nearly good queer representation, and why we need more horror movie musicals pleeeeease

Cross out Anna and the Apocalypse!

Coming up on Wednesday: With no film to discuss, we’re closing out the year with our Best of 2023 picks, reflections on the year’s horror trends, and more than a few bloopers!
