The Sadness still

Mutation of a flu-like virus causes an outbreak of hellish violence on the streets of Taipei. The infected commit the most gruesome acts they can imagine. In the midst of this orgy of death, Jim is looking all over the city for his girlfriend Kat. Will they manage to reunite and survive?

One of the most exquisite treats this year comes from Taiwan, where Canadian writer/director Rob Jabbaz proved that the zombie genre is still undead & well. The Sadness crushes everything in its path, highly imaginative scenes of extreme violence don’t stop for a moment, while astounding effects by the IF SFX Art Maker team never cease to amaze. The film garnered praise from critics and won awards at last year’s Fantasia and Grimmfest.
