Thoughts: In all honesty, zombie movies are just so not my thing. You can keep your walking dead and brain loving slow walkers for all I care unless you’re going to do something different with the material. Zombie movies like Warm Bodies gave us a unique slant to a familiar story which is another reason why the zombie musical Anna and the Apocalypse looks like it might be one to keep an eye (and ear) out for. Anytime a movie is compared to Shaun of the Dead and La La Land well, you have to take notice. With a nice buzz coming out of the early fall festivals, this might be a bloody brilliant movie or another non-starter that played better with festival audiences geared toward this kind of material. I’m thinking it looks like a riot…but I’ve been fooled before. For now, count on my attendance to this apocalypse.
