Director Rob Jabbaz’s feature debut, The Sadness centers on “a young couple, played by Regina Lei (76 Horror Bookstore) and Berant Zhu (We Are Champions, How to Train Your Dragon), trying to reunite amid a city ravaged by a plague that turns its victims into deranged, bloodthirsty sadists.” Tzu Chiang Wang (It’s Drizzling) and In Ru Chen also star in the film.
“The city of Taipei suddenly erupts into bloody chaos as ordinary people are compulsively driven to enact the most cruel and ghastly things they can imagine. Murder, torture, and mutilation are only the beginning. A young couple is pushed to the limits of sanity as they try to reunite amid the violence and depravity. The age of civility and order is no more.”
“From the moment we first saw The Sadness, we knew this was something special. The film reaches heights rarely attained in the horror space. Rob Jabbaz is definitely a talent to watch,” said Raven Banner’s Managing Partner, Michael Paszt. “Shudder is hands down the home for The Sadness and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them.”
Meagan wrote in her 4-star Fantasia review for Bloody Disgusting, “Rob Jabbaz keeps a death grip on the pulse of the current climate, delivering a rage-filled manifesto that aims to tick off every cinematic taboo possible and tests your gag reflex in the process. The Sadness is transgressive horror of the highest, most aggressive order.”
