There's a surprisingly long history of Zombie Musicals, dating back to THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED-UP ZOMBIES (1964). Other notables include NUDIST COLONY OF THE DEAD (1991), and DEAD & BREAKFAST (2004). Actually, that may be the whole list.
Anyway. . . ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is a film that many of you love, and it has the ingredients of something that I could love, but it just seems to fall flat on its face at…
What is left to say about this film? An absolute masterpiece of creeping terror, that hasn't aged a day in forty years. I watched the most recent remaster, which I have mixed feelings on. On the one hand, it is absolutely GORGEOUS. On the other; I miss the grain a little?
Things that I take from my 500th rewatch? It's the little details. The Altmanesque dialogue. Cutaways to characters silently smoking on the periphery of the conversation. The true ensemble nature of it, before the series turned into an action franchise. The silence before the kill.
