Sorrow, the Movie
Sorrow was conceived as a tribute to the 1970s horror genre. Based on a bone-chilling true story and shot with a realistic cinematic style, it is easy to forget that it is only a movie.
In October of 1992, Detective Salinas becomes entrenched in what is quite possibly the most disturbing crime to shake Fieldhouse, Texas: he finds the corpses of two accused American spree serial killers. Three weeks earlier in La Sal, Utah, Mila Sweeney is on her way to her mother’s house when serial killers, who are eluding state troopers, kidnap her. One of them has just escaped from a psychiatric ward. When Mila’s mother comes looking for her, the serial killers murder her mother right before her eyes. Mila is taken to the Texas hometown of the killers, where she is tortured for days. Once she escapes, Mila is determined to seek revenge on her mother’s killers, taking matters into her own hands.
Sorrow is the cumulative effort of talented Houstonians: up-and-coming filmmaker Millie Loredo—who directed, wrote, and produced the film—and castmembers Eric Martinez, Vanessa Vasquez, Mary Etuk, and Brenden Whitney. OC Films’ Orlando Briones and Cris Rodriguez will also be lending their talents to the film, which will be shot with a RED Epic video camera.
