Editorial Reviews

Working nine to five is a real killer, but team building vacations can sometimes be worse. Seven employees of an international weapons manufacturer are left stranded and must fend for themselves. The retreat turns deadly as the colleagues discover they are the target of a crazed and vengeful enemy. Forget office politics, only the lucky will survive this bloody office outing.

Customer Reviews

If you like this sort of thing, I think you'll really appreciate "Severance!"
K. Harris
When their bus driver kicks them off the bus in front of a road not entirely on the beaten path, the crew decide to walk in the hope of finding their destination.

The blood & gore is definately there & done very well, & you really get a sense of danger by the end of the movie.

I checked this one out not expecting much & was shocked to have loved it by the end of the movie. This is a true "slasher" (although there's more to it than just a scary monster guy running around in the woods hacking up teens)flick in every sense of the word. Now the box's cover art claims this to be a comedy/horror flick in the same line as "The Office", & "Shaun Of The Dead". Maybe I missed something, but I didn't get that. While the movie does have it's moments, it's more amusing, than it is just straight out comedy. You'll get some definate chuckles, but I doubt very seriously the film was intended to be strictly just a comedy. The blood & gore is definately there & done very well, & you really get a sense of danger by the end of the movie. The movie is actually really brutal too, which I always like to see; alot of the violence is kinda believable.

A brief synopses(as not to spoil the movie) is you've got a group of people going out on a company retreat. These people happen to be employees of a weapons manufacturer. Anyway there transpotation winds up breaking down on the way & they find a place out in the woods that they at 1st assume is the designated retreat area. After that things start to get bloody and that's all you really need to know. The movie is well acted, & the characters are well fleshed out so you really care what happens to 'em (which doesn't happen very often in horror flicks). Anyway, this is gonna be a sleeper hit, so make sure all you gore hounds & horror freaks check this one out. It's at very least worth a rental if not worthy of your very own collection/library at home. There's just something about British horror, they get it & I wish Hollywood would pick up on that. Check this one out & you won't be disapointed!!!

Not only does this flick have the wit of "The Office"
it also has the gore of "Turistas".
Not a bad combo at all, if you ask me.
Here's the premise:
A group of office employees(all of which are great characters), on a retreat, happen upon the wrong cabin.
And by wrong, I mean, home of a psychopath.
So what naturally starts out as whole-hearted laughs, quickly distorts into blood-curdling screams.

Needless to say,
I am so glad I stumbled upon this gem of a horror/comedy.
So freakin' glad.
I found it infinitely more hilarious than Shaun of the Dead AND Black Sheep.
In fact I found it funnier than practically every horror/comedy I've ever seen.
Very highly recommended.
(Especially to those who like to laugh & cringe)
One of the most lovable characters in the picture is trippin' out on mushrooms the entire film. =D
And during this one particular scene,
he sees himself standing in the threshold across the room,
So of course, his duplicate and him start making facial gestures to each other.
Eventually he follows his doppleganger outside,
and sees yet another duplicate standing against a tree,
who it turns out, was him the entire time.

And yet despite all the comedy that takes place in the former half of the film,
there is definitely an impending sense of dread in the latter half,
especially once the blood starts soaking up the surroundings.
And truth be told, the gore is actually done suprisingly well.
No cop outs here, folks.
There's 1 inevitabely classic scene where one characters leg is stuck in a bear-trap.
His fellow employees keep trying to help him out, but to no avail.
It keeps slamming shut, biting down even further into his leg.

I just watched this movie yesterday and I was blown away. From the opening sequences you are shocked yet intrigued, just what the hell is going on here. The story steps back and unfolds. The characters, even the a-holes are believable and lovable, and utterly hilarious. It is the perfect blend of horror and comedy. This is not Shaun of the Dead, this is a very dark and bloody tale that is full of gut busting funny moments. I absolutely loved it. A closer film in feel to me would be Feast.

Format: DVD
Better-than-average thriller which stirs enough black humor into the mix to prevent you from taking it seriously. In "Severance," a group of defense workers goes off on a corporate retreat ("team building") and are confronted by a menace. But what is facing them is not just some unseen killer, no, it's the terror of an unforgiving public who's been there, done that. They don't just have to win over the attacker -- they have to win over the audience as well. Or should I say that's the challenge of writer-director Christopher Smith, and he succeeds with ease.

Several gruesome moments seem like bait for gore-mongers, since the film would work perfectly well without them, but are well-done and there is enough character development at the front end of the movie to make you care when the blood starts to flow. I thought the characters were consistent enough (and surprising enough) to behave like real human beings, instead of turning into horror movie cliches. There's Danny Dyer's Steve who is still able to provide comic relief in a film that's already quite satirical. The goal of this trip is a little R&R, but Steve misread it as sex and drugs and R&R. He is a standout here. A fierce American female played by Laura Harris who shines as Maggie who maintains her tough exterior without turning into Laura Croft. Toby Stephens, Claudie Blakley, Andy Nyman, Babou Ceesay, and Tim McInnerny all turn in perfectly lighthearted performances while remaining frighteningly real. The exploitation of horror movie clichés by turning some of them inside out also generates a good portion of the humor. There are also enough surprises to keep you intrigued - one stabbing looks so painful it'll make you think twice before kicking anyone in the butt.
