To Your Last Death was also nominated for Best Feature at the Pasadena International Film Festival in addition to Best Feature, Best Director and Best First-time Filmmaker at HorrorHound.
Axinn produced alongside Cindi Rice and Paige Barnett. John Frank Rosenblum exec produced the pic with Tanya Klein and Jim Cirile, with the latter two also penning the script.
Of her time in the recording booth, Baccarin shared, “What drew me to this project was how dark it was. This idea that we can be finger puppets, that somebody could be up there, wreaking chaos in our lives… Obviously, it’s a fantasy world, and it’s always fun to do something that’s completely unrealistic and at the same time plays with themes from reality. I enjoyed this character because one could say she’s evil — she’s doing these terrible things — but she’s really just doing her job. It’s not about emotion, and it’s not about being mean or terrible to people. It’s about entertainment, and in a weird way, I thought it would be really fun to attempt vocally to do that.”
“If you can make people feel that they could die horribly, that’s scary. That’s close to the bone,” added Shatner.
The Blu-Ray release is 92-minutes and comes a redemption code to over 4 hours of digital extras, including an audio commentary with the director, a Zoom panel with Axinn, Lennon and others, an interview with Shatner, interviews and behind the scenes with stars Baccarin, Wise, Moseley, Lennon and Florence Hartigan, a behind the scenes reel, comic con panels, an animation demo with lead animator Mohammad Ali Sharifpour, unused artwork and animation, crowdfunding highlights, featurettes on the development of the film, and more.
