A ZOMBIE musical Christmas movie made in Inverclyde is to be shown at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The production crew for Anna And The Apocalypse was based at the former St Stephen's High School in Port Glasgow for a number of weeks at the start of 2017, with much of the movie being filmed in the building.

Various other Inverclyde locations were used including Cathcart Square, Greenock, Kingston housing estate, Whinhill Golf Course, and a number of place in Port Glasgow including the industrial estate and a play park.

The movie, which was produced by Scottish company Blazing Griffin, is due to go on wide release in the UK and internationally at the end of the year.

The film stars Ella Hunt (Our Robot Overlords) as Anna, Mark Benton (The Halcyon), Paul Kaye (Game Of Thrones) and a breakout group of emerging talent including Malcolm Cumming, Ben Wiggins, Sarah Swire, Christopher Leveaux and Marli Siu.

In Anna and the Apocalypse, a zombie apocalypse threatens the sleepy town of Little Haven forcing Anna and her high school friends to fight, sing and slash their way to survival with a fast-spreading undead horde in relentless pursuit.
