With the release of a musical trailer recently, “Anna and the Apocalypse” has inspired a lot of interest for its upcoming winter release. Not only has the film inspired anticipation for its release, it has also spawned a tie-in novel set to be released on Oct. 23.
The book will also be a horror comedy written by co-authors Katherine Turner and Barry Waldo. And while the book will also have a similar plot about the sleepy town of Little Haven, the book promises to dive deeper into the lives of Anna, her friends and her fellow students.
According to Bloody Disgusting, the co-authors said “Anna and the Apocalypse is a wonderfully realized world, full of strong characters, epic friendships and gripping adventure. The book gave us the chance to delve deeper into relatable, kick-ass characters and really dig into their lives and relationships. The Anna universe is so full of heart and so much fun to explore, it was just a gift to us as writers. It’s definitely the best zombie high school Christmas horror comedy book we’ve ever written!”
The book is available for pre-order at major online book retailers.
