Ever since Daily Dead Managing Editor Heather Wixson gave it a five-star review last year, we've been excited for Daily Dead readers to unwrap the humor, horror, and heartfelt emotions of the zombie Christmas musical Anna and the Apocalypse, so we're thrilled that director John McPhail is a special guest on a new episode of Daily Dead's podcast!

When zombies shamble into Little Haven's holiday season, it's up to the teenagers of the small town to dance their way to survival in the living dead Christmas musical Anna and the Apocalypse. A festive blend of blood-spattered scares, heartfelt humor, and dance numbers that are as contagious as a zombie virus, Anna and the Apocalypse enjoyed a well-received run on the film festival circuit, and to celebrate its theatrical release, Heather Wixson is joined by director John McPhail on a special episode of Corpse Club!

Pour yourself a cup of eggnog and listen as McPhail discusses the holiday horror movie's journey to the big screen, filming the infectiously festive music performances, working with a talented young cast, digging into the movie’s poignant emotional core, and taking a bite out of the holidays with a unique zombie story. So, whether you've seen Anna and the Apocalypse or you're looking forward to experiencing it for the first time, throw another log on the fire, check your doorstep for living dead carolers, and sit back, relax, and enjoy a new episode of Corpse Club!
