If your interest isn't peaked at part "Shaun of the Dead," part "La La Land" then there may be no hope because this description has been made about "Anna and the Apocalypse" and its star can't disagree too much.

"It's not far off. It's a zombie musical set at Christmas and it's Scottish so it does have that (United Kingdom) wit about it that 'Shaun (of the Dead)' has," Hunt said. "The first fifteen minutes of the film feel akin to 'High School Musical' but like a naughtier version."

Hunt said co-writer Ryan McHenry got the idea for the movie after watching the Disney Channel movie and had the thought that "it would be great if Zac Efron was eaten by zombies."

The movie, directed by John McPhail, is playing on Wednesday night at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival and has garnered some praise at other festivals around the country for being a possible cult hit in the vein of "Rocky Horror Picture Show." Hunt said she would love to see that kind of attention coming to the movie as it would be a perfect watch with a large audience.

 

"It is so awesome watching the film find a varied audience. We had horror fans who hate musicals say they loved the film and musical fans who say they hate horror movies saying they love the film, which is a wonderful pat on the back for all of us," she said. "Where people come to the cinema dressed up as us (in the movie) and throw candy canes at the screen and know the words would be awesome. I want people to enjoy interacting with the film."

One thing Hunt has enjoyed interacting with herself is the loveliness of the Hostess City. The actress said she didn't know what to expect when she was heading towards Savannah, but crew members on a production she's working on immediately lit up when they heard where she was going. "I turned up (in Savannah) and I was like, 'oh my gosh I want to stay here forever,'" she said.

"It's beautiful. I arrived at the hotel, walked to Leopold's, got some ice cream and then walked up to Forsyth Park and it's a beautiful place. I'm very happy to be here."
