One of the most hotly anticipated indies of 2018 in Anna and the Apocalypse. Now, I don’t much care for musicals, but I love horror comedy and the addition of musical numbers to such films is usually awesome. Films like Stage Fright and The Lure are amazing examples of thoroughly entertaining horror musicals. Oh, did I mention Anna and the Apocalypse is a musical?
