FrightFest Favourite ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE in Cinemas NOW – From Gremlins to Krampus: Alternative Christmas Films

30 November 2018

A zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven – at Christmas – 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.

Teaming up with her best friend John, Anna and her crew fight their way through zombified snowmen, a ravenous bachelor party and high school hormones to try and save family and faculty alike. But they soon discover that no-one is safe in this new world, and the only people they can truly rely on are each other.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, snow is beginning to fall, Christmas trees are twinkling, sprits are high, however … the world is at threat from blood thirsty killer zombies.

Anna and the Apocalypse is an alternative Christmas film with a twist. Here are five of the best wacky alternative Christmas films...

Gremlins (1984)
A Christmas comedy horror about a strange, small furry creature called a Mogwai. When Billy is given a Mogwai as an odd Christmas present by his farther he is burdened with its very specific needs. It can’t be exposed to the light, or water or feed after midnight or else this seemingly harmless creature turns into a murderous monster who runs rampage around the town, destroying the Christmas holidays.



Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Perhaps not your go -to feel good Christmas movie, but never the less a cult classic that offers one of the most iconic festive scenes in movie history. Tim Burton’s unconventional dark romantic fantasy is a modern-day Frankenstein story of acceptance and social isolation. In a magical scene where Edward, a scientific creation with scissors for hands carves an ice sculpture of Kim, his muse and crush, the ice chips fall like snow from the sky creating a mystical Christmas scene that captures the fairy-tale charm surrounding the holiday.



Christmas With The Kranks (2004)
After religiously and happily celebrating Christmas their entire lives, the Krank’s decide to ‘skip’ Christmas to avoid the competitive hassle of the holidays and take a Carrabin cruise instead. Things escalate quickly as the neighbourhood descends into outrage over the Kranks ‘un- festive’ attitude. In a drastic turn of events their daughter calls on Christmas Eve to tell them she is home for the holidays. The race is on to turn their anti – Christmas defiance and un-decorated home into a festive haven.



Krampus (2015)
An ancient folk law comes to life in Krampus in a twisted fantasy comedy horror. Max’s family has lost their Christmas spirit since the children have grown up and got their own families. Three days before Christmas they are plunged into darkness, a strange creature has come to punish them for their lack of festive sprite - the ancient demonic sprit.



Office Christmas Party (2016)
An instant comedy classic. People just want to have fun and let loose at Christmas. The over worked employers of global conglomerate, Zenotek, take it upon themselves to arrange the biggest, most outrages Christmas Party in the company’s history. It’s a whirlwind of hedonistic excess, bad dad dancing and a celebration of the festive season, all set within the walls of the office.



Anna and the Apocalypse (2018)
As Christmas approaches the inhabitants of the sleepy Scottish town of Little Heaven, it feels the same as every year. That is, until a zombie apocalypse descends and threatens the town with blood- thirsty Santa’s and zombified snowmen. Anna teams up with her high school friends to save the town from the end of the world. The secret ingredient in the film – it’s a musical!
