The 16th Annual Another Hole In The Head Film Festival
On Sunday, December 15th, at 9 pm, Another Hole In The Head showcases its closing night feature “To Your Last Death”. The 91-minute animated horror feature by Jason Axinn (2019) opens with Miriam DeKalb (voiced by Dani Lennon) covered in blood, bursting out of a building, clutching an axe, while two mysterious figures look on. “Lock the bets,” one tells the other.
“He killed them!” Miriam exclaims. “He killed my family!” As the sole survivor in a deadly revenge game set up by her father to punish his children, she receives an offer from a supernatural entity to go back in time and try again. Now, Miriam must survive both her father's blood lust and the Gamemaster's ever-changing rules to save her siblings as she relives the worst night of her life.
Anon Bitel writes, “Jason Axinn’s hyperviolent anime ‘To Your Last Death’ offers an alien-eye view on our capacity for self-destruction at a familial and corporate level.”
