#2,616. To Your Last Death (2019)


An animated action / horror film from director Jason Axinn, To Your Last Death is insanely brutal, but oh-so-much fun!

Having survived the deathtrap set by her billionaire father (voiced by Ray Wise), which claimed the lives of her three siblings, Miriam DeKalb (Dani Lennon) is approached by a supernatural entity known as the “Gamemaster” (Morena Baccarin), which offers Miriam a chance to go back in time and alter the outcome of this tragedy.

Though confused and frightened, Miriam accepts, only to discover along the way that there’s more at stake than she could have ever imagined.

Filled to its breaking point with sleazy characters (even Miriam’s brothers and sister have their dark sides) and bloody gore (there are axes and guns aplenty, yet, surprisingly, the film’s most memorable mutilation comes courtesy of an electrical outlet), To Your Last Death also dabbles in fantasy (i.e. - the Gamemaster subplot), making it one of the more unique animated films I’ve seen in some time.

Add to this the fact that it’s narrated by William Shatner, and you have a movie you’ll want to immediately move to the top of your queue!
Rating: 7.5 out of 10
