The Sadness 哭悲

  Rob Jabbaz

  Taiwan     95 minutes


After a mysterious virus begins to spread throughout Taipei, violent packs of infected citizens— driven to kill, rape, torture, and mutilate—begin to hunt unsuspecting citizens. Before long, destruction consumes the city, leaving young couple Kat (Regina) and Jim (Berant Zhu) to brave unimaginable chaos as they journey through the carnage in an attempt to reunite with one another and escape the deadly hordes. Both a delightfully cringe-inducing gorefest and timely social critique, The Sadness conjures unforgettable visions of a catastrophic pandemic as it careens toward a very, very bloody conclusion.
