By Stuart D. Monroe – Apr 2020

Fortunately, something like To Your Last Death comes along every now and then to remind me that when you remove the chains of reality and essentially animate a comic book, you get some deeply disturbing and lovingly warped wet work that does a number on your lizard brain. Buckle up, kids. <Read More>

Interview: Dani Lennon (To Your Last Death)

By Janel Spiegel – Mar 2020

The film is unlike anything that I’ve seen. Not just with the animation itself but, the concept. It’s like Saw meets Groundhog’s Day. It’s a very interesting role. I was attracted to it from the get-go. It’s kind of one of those things that’s special. <Read More>

‘To Your Last Death’ Is an Entertaining Adult Animation and a Bloody Good Time

By Ferdosa Abdi – Mar 2020

If I could write a review that was only two words long for To Your Last Death it would be: friggin awesome. If I could just leave it at that I would, but instead, let me walk you through a somewhat longer review that should compel you to check out this killer animated film. <Read More>


By Mary Beth McAndrews – Mar 2020

Animation is a gorgeous medium ripe for horror picking but is so often assumed to be saved for children’s content. While shows like The Simpsons, South Park, and Family Guy are treated as adult animation anomalies, there is so much more to the world of animation particularly when it comes to horror. Director Jason Axin’s feature film debut To Your Last Death proves that. <Read More>

By Shawn Macomber – Mar 2020

If Saturday-morning cartoons were still a thing, TO YOUR LAST DEATH (on VOD/digital today) most certainly would not have made the cut—at least not without a gaggle of beheaded network execs and censors lining the hallway to the director of programming’s office. <Read More>

By Moe – Mar 2020

An action-packed, blood-drenched animated feature. Bolstered by magnificent voice acting, strong script writing, and tons of character development plus world-building, it’s a delightful movie. Unique, especially for an animated flick, there’s a refreshing maturity inherent in its exploration of trauma. It’s a celebration of survivors just as much as an action-horror romp. <Read More>

Morena Baccarin Brings Animated-Horror to Life

By Jon Stewart – Feb 2020

By Enrique Acosta – Jan 2020

Reminiscent of pulp horror or the Grand Guignol style of theater, it delivers on all its promises while avoiding becoming mindless gore porn. It’s a hyperviolent thrill ride that manages to titillate, entertain, and take the viewer to task for liking this kind of film. <Read More>

Eric’s FilmQuest Review

By Lightninli – Nov 2019

To Your Last Death is a unicorn of a movie. A gory R-rated 2-D Western animated film. It’s a rowdy romp that uses familiar themes but takes full advantage of the unusual animated medium. It feels like an animated comic book on steroids. <Read More>

By Adrienne Reese – Oct 2019

From all of the what the f*ck-ness in the trailer I knew I would be in for quite a ride, and the film did not disappoint.

To Your Last Death - Arrow Video FrightFest 2019 - 4 Stars

By Paul Chapinal – Aug 2019

“ over the top bat poop crazy and I loved all of it.”

By Marc Morin – Aug 2019

The animation has that classic 2D look that plays like a comic book come to life which makes the excessive violence even more fun to watch because you’re like this is crazy but it’s just a cartoon. I especially loved the inventive torture traps that could easily have been used in one of the many Saw movies and a lot of the biggest blood splattering moments come from these being put to good use.  <Read More>
