To Your Last Death is not your average animated feature. It’s loaded with wacky characters & lots of gore. This one has a great balance of action & horror. The story & script stays interesting, I think it would have been an awesome live action project. For the most part, it has more than a few unlikable characters so you don’t mind seeing them get slaughtered in this. The animation here is unique & it has it’s own style. To Your Last Death has excellent marketing because the main cast is mostly unknowns but they are surrounded by some familiar voices & names. Every role has it’s own problems & they are very different from each other. Ray Wise, Morena Baccarin, & Bill Moseley are all awesome villains in this & they elevate the overall production. William Shatner narrates the film with it’s his classic voice & it adds a nice touch to everything. This is one is brutal & gruesome, this is one messed up family that don’t get along at all. RECOMMENDED!!!!
Let’s talk about the high definition presentation from Quiver Distribution! This 1080p (1.78:1) transfer looks fantastic & the animation style here really stands out when it comes to the visuals. The English: Dolby Digital 5.1 track has a killer boost to it. All of the dialogue is very clean, all the chaos is elevated here, & the music roars through the speakers. It has English SDH subtitles. It has a “Trailer” for To Your Last Death. It comes with a slipcover. If you are a big fan of this feature, a v.i.p digital code is available with a sticker that comes on the packaging featuring 4 hours of bonus material for this that’s not featured on this disc. This is definitely for adults only because it’s a brutal animated movie that delivers on violence. It’s available everywhere right now, CHECK IT OUT!!!!
