FYC: (although definition of "everyone" is a bit tricky and, well, mild spoilers?)
Desyat negrityat (1987) (although it has strong horror overtones, it is mostly categorized as mystery)
Casino Royale (1967) 
Mean Guns (1997)

I just thought "everyone" is an absolut and infinite term. May "everyone" mean that the story is based on many protagonists and antagonists dead? In most movies there are still some people standing, even though the most main characters died in need of story-telling. That's symptomatic for a few Shakespeare-plots. And would you count mystery to horror? So forget about 'Knowing', which is close to horror, but still not. Do you count SciFi-dystopias to horror? So forget about 'Battle Royale' and The second part of the five-parted dystopia 'Planet of the Apes' of the 60's. Non-horror and everyone are sharp definitions for some movie-options that are not so clear separated from other genres. I try to understand the intention of the idea and I like it.

P.S.:
'Knowing' (2009)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0448011/
'Battle Royale' (2000)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0266308/
'The Perfect Storm' (2000)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0177971/

The last three are sure questionable, but maybe they fit in some way to your idea. I don't really know. FYC. ;)

All the suggestions added. Well, mystery and SciFi-dystopias can be added to the list since IMDb dosen't include them in horror genre. I also corrected the text and added ''almost everyone'' since there are some people still alive, Thanks!

PK,

For your consideration:
Dark Star (1974)
Comedy, Sci-Fi
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069945/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069945/plotsummary
Low-budget story of four astronauts in deep space, whose mission is to destroy unstable planets in star systems which are to be colonised. The late Commander Powell is stored in deep freeze, where he is still able to offer advice. As their mission nears completion, they must cope with a runaway alien which resembles a beach-ball, faulty computer systems, and a "smart bomb" who thinks it is God.

Just how is Battle Royale NOT a horror film? It's pretty gory and horrifying. It's only saving Grace is it's terrible overuse of some of the worst fake blood effects (practical or otherwise).

I know your intention, but Paok explained it a few comments above. I know it's debateable, if this movie should be of horror genre. When you look at 'Robocop' (1987), it's categorized to action, crime and sci-fi - not to horror. It's a little difficult to define, because the boarders to another genre are often fluent. But Paok stated his rules for the game, so it's ok by me. Just the bloody gore doesn't mean to be horror for a movie. I would turn that thought down in real life - but movies (except documentaries and many biopics) aren't real life.

Stephen Atwood, I've noticed that suspension of disbelief in regards of blood, gore and CGI differs in Japan and levels of acceptibility are different for some reason...

Sorry, but I really dislike this kind of polls. They are full of spoilers, but while other spoiler polls are linked to a particular title, and I know tehy are safe to vote once I have seen it, in these cases it is impossible to know.

I don't know if I can vote, because I don't know if I have seen all movies on the poll, but opening to check means I will be spoiled about one or several titles were all characters die just by scrolling or getting a preview in the polls pages. That makes it impossible to ever vote safely

That's true. As I saw mostly all of them, I didn't think on that fact.
There should be a big spoiler warning at the top of the intro.

I am not so certain that "Triangle" (2009) counts as an everyone-dies story, though I love this film. While the characters do indeed die in brutal ways, the main character is stuck in an "Groundhog Day"-like infinite time loop. Once she is the sole survivor, she returns to the start of the voyage and the circle begins again. Meaning that (almost) everyone who died is back again and has to be killed again.

There are even scenes involving multiple corpses of the same individual.
