It's not for the squeamish, but To Your Last Death is a wild mix of anarchic splatter and a heady (if cynical) exploration of fate and destiny. Somehow, this animated horror about four damaged adult siblings trying to escape from the psychopathic wrath of their father (wickedly voiced by Ray Wise) manages to balance the cosmic big picture and the blood-soaked central story without careening too far into either extreme. The extra miles the filmmakers took to make this happen is appreciated; had they stuck simply to the basic story, it would have still been a good movie, but stock. Instead, the movie toys with audience expectation, while both celebrating and teasing the conventions of grindhouse horror.

While the movie wears its influences on its sleeve (Saw, obviously, comes immediately to mind), To Your Last Death is as original and convention defying as they come. The acting is excellent, and the main characters are developed substantially more than most horror movies, where everyone seems content to provide just enough information to make the audience somewhat invested in whether or not they're killed. That said, this is definitely not for kids in any way, shape, or form.
