THE SADNESS

de Rob Jabbaz

Synopsis

A young couple finds themselves pushed to the limits of sanity as they try to get together in the midst of the chaos generated by a pandemic outbreak. The disease turns those infected into cruel and depraved creatures, a level of inhumanity where murder, torture and mutilation reign. Rob Jabbaz brings one of the most radical films in the Festival's history to Sitges, the gore genre's equivalent of The Raid.
