& the Apocalypse Cast - Hollywood
Ending (Official Audio)
as “Shaun of the Dead meets La La Land,” Anna and
The Apocalypse follows Anna (Ella Hunt), whose life
is dominated by the typical concerns of her youthful peers until
the Christmas season in her small British town brings not Santa
but an outbreak of the Undead. A zombie apocalypse threatens
the sleepy town, forcing Anna and her high school friends to
fight, sing, and slash their way to survival with a fast-spreading
undead horde in relentless pursuit.
Bustle called Anna and the Apocalypse “a
cult classic in the making,” while USA Today called it
“the year’s most toe-tapping horror film.” Variety called
it “delightfully crazy and highly entertaining” and said that
“it has the originality and crowd-pleasing energy to become
a Christmas movie hit when it opens theatrically in the U.K.
and U.S. just in time for the holidays.”
Anna and the Apocalypse is based on the 2010 BAFTA winning
short film Zombie Musical; directed by John McPhail
(Where Do We Go From Here); written by Alan McDonald
and the late Ryan McHenry (Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat
His Cereal viral series); with original music by Roddy
Hart and Tommy Reilly — a film and TV songwriting
partnership from Glasgow, Scotland, who have each released several
critically acclaimed solo albums. Watch the trailer HERE.

music for Anna and the Apocalypse combines Hart
and Reilly’s love of film with their diverse indie background.
Alongside his band The Lonesome Fire, Hart has worked with Coldplay/Morrissey
producer Danton Supple and Mogwai/Arab Strap’s Paul Savage.
In 2014 he was nominated for the Scottish Album Of The Year
Award, which was followed by a six-night residency performing
on CBS’ The Late Late Show in the U.S. His most recent
record, Swithering, was released late 2016. Reilly received
a Scottish BAFTA New Talent nomination for his composition work
in 2016. He first rose to prominence after winning the Channel
4 TV show Orange Unsigned. Shortly after, Reilly's first
single "Gimme a Call" reached No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart.
The cast performed at the 4th annual Elsie
Fest on October 7th at SummerStage Central Park in New York
City. Elsie Fest is a one-day outdoor music festival that celebrates
the stars and songs from the stage and screen.
