When the zombie apocalypse hits the sleepy town of Little Haven - at Christmas - teenager Anna and her high school friends have to fight, sing and dance to survive, with the undead horde all around them. Teaming up with her best friend John, Anna has to fight her way through zombified snowmen, Santas, elves and Christmas shoppers to get across town to the high school, where they'll be safe. But they soon discover that being a teenager is just as difficult as staying alive, even at the end of the world.
Many in the cast, including its stars, saw the film for the first time at the film's premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas. See more »
At the start of the song "Turning My Live Around" before Anna starts to head to school she pulls out a piece of candy from an advent calendar, showing that it's December 24th. In Scotland, school winter holidays start December 20th. See more »
Fun, charming, corny (though not in a bad way) and feeling fresh, this movie also somehow still feels a bit overlong, never fully engaging and not reaching the potential that it should and that you hope (also surprisingly not very Christmassy / lacking spirit). However, it does subvert some cliches and expectations, and the actors have great chemistry. The singing is good, for the most part, but you'll probably forget the songs by the time you get home. If you're curious or already looking forward to it, check it out. Otherwise, wait for Redbox.
