A lot has already been written, puzzled and argued about “ The Sadness ” : About the fact that the Taiwanese horror shocker received an uncut 18+ rating, but was denied an FSK rating in home cinema. About whether it’s a zombie movie or not. And about how well the film lives up to the hype surrounding its harsh peaks of violence and breaking taboos. Now the Capelight label is giving everyone who hasn’t had a say because they haven’t seen «The Sadness» yet another incentive to change that .
Because in addition to the limited collector’s editions released last month, cheaper options are now appearing: On May 27, 2022, «The Sadness» will be released in regular DVD and Blu-ray editions and will therefore also be more attractive for bargain hunters . With regard to the film, they do not represent a downgrade: These less elaborately designed releases are uncut, just like the editions already available.

If you want to have «The Sadness» in 4K on the shelf, you still have to reach for the limited 2-disc media book or the 2-disc steel book, which is also only available in limited quantities. Both editions include the regular Blu-ray in addition to the 4K disc.
«The Sadness»: Zombies, Carnage or Pandemic Panic?
In “The Sadness”, director Robert Jabbaz tells of a mutation of the new Alvin virus that divides Taiwan: some consider all pandemic precautionary measures to be nonsensical, others cannot believe the recklessness of the other side. The virus, on the other hand, doesn’t care about debates, but strikes — and turns all those infected into sadistic, sexually uninhibited aggressive people. Murder, torture, rape are the new everyday life. In this bloodbath chaos, can Junzhe ( Tzu-Chiang Wang ) find his girlfriend Kai Ting ( Regina Lei )?
