Although the sophistication of its animation is far from what is achieved in films with a higher budget, this hilarious ‘Until your last death‘ that you can watch on Prime Video and Movistar Plus+ is a brutal satire with elements of horror and fantasy that is enjoyed more as a motion comic than a typical animated film. In fact, its curious stillness, reminiscent of series like ‘Archer’ or ‘The Walking Dead’ video games, gives it the air of a 90s horror comic with a very special atmosphere.

‘Until your last death’ tells how a tycoon who knows that he is going to die soon invites his four children to a closed building to discuss their rights as heirs. But these, each with very different personalities, They will find that they are victims of a plot that will put their courage and resistance to the test.. And that’s just the beginning: his father is the least of the dangers that await them.

With a very notable cast of voices (Morena Baccarin -‘Firefly’-, William Shatner -‘Star Trek’-, Ray Wise -‘Twin Peaks’-, Bill Moseley -‘The Devil’s Rejects’…), the film It stands out for its absolute shamelessness when it comes to throwing the most stark gore and the most grotesque humor at the viewer. So much so that it is often reminiscent of a kind of version of ‘Saw’ in an aseptic office building, but with elements of cosmic horror and the slasher ‘Happy day of your death’.

We will not tell more so as not to incur spoilers, but it is admirable how, between jokes about eyes coming out of their sockets and giant traps, ‘Until your last death’ manages to put together a very original and somewhat complex plot background. In a certain sense, it reminds of the memorable ‘The Cabin in the Woods’, but retreaded with Lovecraftian airs. A real surprise for strong animation devotees.
