Too hard for the FSK This film is a must for horror fans &amp a test of courage for everyone else — now new &amp uncut in home cinema! — Cinema News

Machi Xcelsior Studios

While sensitive souls should be warned in the case of » The Sadness » because the film was released in cinemas with an 18 rating, horror enthusiasts could almost be misled. After all, the Taiwanese shocker received the blessing of the FSK for theatrical release. For friends of particularly hard food, the impression could thus arise that the apocalyptic infected tear-jerker hardly exceeds the bloody genre average in terms of violent peaks. But far from it.

Not only for us «The Sadness» is one of the hardest films of the recent past , which by the way no longer passed the FSK test for the home cinema release and had to go through the detour via the SPIO/JK approval uncut. But whatever. After the film was already shown in the cinema in its entirety and has also been available as a stream (e.g. on Amazon Prime Video) for a few days, “The Sadness” is finally available completely unabridged on Blu-ray from today:

» «The Sadness» Uncut Steelbook at Amazon *
» «The Sadness» Uncut Mediabook at Amazon *
» «The Sadness» Uncut Steelbook at Capelight *
» «The Sadness» Uncut Mediabook at Capelight *
» «The Sadness» at Amazon Prime Video *

Capelight is releasing the film for the home cinema launch in two strictly limited collector’s editions, which in addition to the Blu-ray also contain the 4K Blu-ray of the film. Horror fans and film collectors have the choice between a steel book, whose cover is adorned with an axe-wielding infected person from the film, and a media book with a somewhat simpler design.

«The Sadness»: Not for the faint of heart

Raising expectations is always such a thing. In the case of «The Sadness», however, we simply don’t want to beat about the bush, but instead feel it our duty to warn less die-hard film fans: This film turns up so mercilessly in terms of violence and carnage that it quickly becomes a test of courage can’t take my eyes off it.

Robert Jabbaz ‘ film begins more or less like a normal end-time horror film, in which not infrequently hordes of undead attack the human population. A difference to “The Sadness”: Here the infected don’t just turn into monsters hungry for human flesh, but into sadistic, sexually uninhibited lunatics who attack each other. And how.

Where other horror films draw a line, fade away and leave the audience to their imaginations, «The Sadness» sticks with it mercilessly, always adding a beastly shovel when you’re not expecting it and literally pulling the rug out from under your feet.

Director Jabbaz doesn’t give a damn about his viewers’ potential head cinema and prefers to take the rush of images of the most disturbing nature into his own hands. The atrocities range from simple assassination like a knife in the carotid artery to ripped out intestines to a rape in an eye socket (!) — and make «The Sadness» one of «the most violent splatter films of all time», as editor Björn Becher in the official FILMSTARTS criticizes the film.

FSK 18 highlight: One of the best horror films of the year is released for home cinema only 3 (!) weeks after the cinema release

It is more than obvious that the film can or even should be understood as a criticism of the international corona management, but in view of the rampant orgy of butchery it quickly becomes a minor matter. «The Sadness» is gripping, intense and disturbing.
