Young lovers Jim and Kat are heading toward a wonderful future, but then a virus outbreak plunges Taipei and all of Taiwan into violence and chaos. The infected are reduced to their basic instincts, leaving them hungry for human flesh and sex. When Jim and Kat are separated, both must fight for their survival, seeming more hopeless with every minute. But the two are driven by their intense urge to find each other. Rob Jabbaz’s The Sadness is a frenetic, hard-hitting zombie thriller with fantastic analog gore effects and melancholy, sentimental undercurrents. A tour de force.

NIGHT OF 1000 KNIVES
Get ready for the wildest night of the year! Four of the vilest, most wonderful, grisly, gory atrocities we could get our hands on, plus one quick act of beastly malice will rob you of your sleep. And remember: All who stay till the end will receive a coveted, extremely limited badge pin with original artwork.
