The Sadness

The Sadness poster

A film that certainly honors its reputation. Not so much its title though, as The Sadness is pure cinematic horror fun. I don't really care for zombie films anymore, but when they're this graphic and in-your-face it's an easy bias to overcome. The gore is plentiful, there are a slew of iconic scenes (the metro) and characters (the old ledger) and the pacing is perfect. The film does run out of steam just a little towards the finale, Jabbaz isn't able to top himself there, but that's only a minor hiccup in an otherwise delightful horror flick.
