Screening as part of Night of the Dead. Tickets for Night of the Dead are £24/£20.

In the aftermath of a pandemic, most people have become complacent and the warning from a scientist that it could easily mutate goes ignored. That is until infected people suddenly turn into rabid monsters, acting on their darkest impulses. Amid shocking scenes of depravity and slaughter, two young lovers struggle to reunite amidst the madness that is engulfing the city. Rob Jabbaz’s unrelenting debut is a scathing indictment of societal breakdown with scenes of sexual violence, necrophilia and worse. Be warned: The Sadness may be the most extreme film we’ve screened in Night of the Dead! Screening with Visitors (Kenichi Ugana, Japan, 2021, 16 mins).

This film contains scenes of sexual assault/rape and strong bloody violence.
