In case you missed it, Brandon and Alan put together a special deep dive into two incredible holiday horror films. These are both surprisingly gut-wrenching movies that will stay with you forever, and they are well worth the watch.
Anna and the Apocalypse is a Christmas-themed zombie comedy musical horror film—yes it is all those things!—and feels like the High School Musical equivalent of Shaun of the Dead. I have found that most people that I show this film to end up loving it because it has something for everyone.
Silent Night is a very dark doomsday film with black comedy throughout, and while it feels like it is about COVID hysteria it actually isn’t. It is a dinner party movie that takes place at Christmas and involves a family getting together for what appears to be their last meal. It is a slow burn that is well worth the journey and packs a very emotional punch, too.
Anna and the Apocalypse is streaming on AMC+, Shudder, Roku, and Tubi. Brandon did mention a director’s cut, and if you want the Blu-Ray with that cut, you’ll want this one. Silent Night is streaming on AMC+ and Fubo.
We say check these movies out, then check back in with us as we discuss them in our deep dive. If your end-of-the-year watches include Hellraiser, don’t forget that we recently reviewed those as well.
We hope you continue enjoying your holidays, and we’ll see you next year!
