Audience Reviews for Severance

    So much better than it should of been, It's just your typical Slasher film but with dark British humour which makes the film even better, Danny Dyer was great and very funny, It is predictable from start to finish as we know who's going to die next, It's gory, Nothing new but it's fun.

    Enjoyable horror film with a good cast, Severance is an interesting horror comedy that though bizarre is very well done. As a low-budget horror comedy outing, Severance is an impressive film that is original and lots of fun from start to finish. The film is not flawless of course, and the film at times struggles in delivering the material, however for the most part, director Christopher Smith delivers a fun film. I found the plot for this film to be very original, and that Christopher Smith was able to deliver good funny moments, and still have enough momentum to deliver shocking moments. Severance is a breath of fresh air in the horror genre. It's one of those rare gems that you need to watch if you're a Horror buff. In this one, its riddled with traditional Horror Clichés yet you don't seem to care because the film is so good and so much fun. If you haven't seen this film, do yourself a favour and watch, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Though it's not perfect, Severance is a good time and will definitely please fans of other recent horror comedies. This is a very well acted film with memorable moments and if you enjoy a bloody, gory good time, then this one is definitely worth your time. Christopher Smith is a good director and he directs yet another worthy film with this intriguing horror comedy.

    The Office meets Deliverance. It's full of British humour, but it's very slow paced. I like the unpredictable story, totally rule breaking. Everyday office workers can be fighters too!!

    Some employees of an international arms dealer go out into the Hungarian wildeness for a weekend company retreat, only to find themselves menaced by a group of militants who don't like having them around their territory in this modestly budgeted dark comedy/horror film from Christopher Smith, who also directed Black Death (with Sean Bean). The film takes the American slasher formula, and plays with it a bit by adding some wry British humor with a dark edge, as well as starting things off in medias res and not completely following convention. Overall, it's not too bad. It's not the best thing in the world, but it is pretty fun and entertaining. The cast seem to get along with each other quite well, and there's a great sense that this film isn't meant to be taken too seriously, and that it was probably really fun to make. The make up and effects are well done, and there's some pretty good kill scenes, though in the story department it's a little forgettable and could have been beefed up more. If you like quirky takes on genre movies, a la Shaun of the Dead, then you'll probably get some enjoyment out of this. It's a nice little take on a well worn genre.
