A fine slice of British Comedy Horror,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Severance [DVD]  (DVD)
To be honest with you, I was wavering about whether to order this or not. I can only say, that I'm so glad I did. This is a real gem, a real surprise. It's been pitched as everyone knows, as 'The Office' meets 'Deliverance'. I would agree with this statement, but I'd also go on to to say that it brought to mind 'Southern Comfort' and 'Dog Soldiers' (obviously minus the werewolves). The gist of this is, that seven colleagues from Palisade Defence undertake a team-building weekend away in Hungary, where they are getting hunted down by ex-war soldiers who have developed a taste for killing, especially anyone with connections to Palisade Defence Corporation.
In the last few years, there has been a spate of really good British Horror movies, with '28 Days Later' being the best (in my opinion). This, I would rate on a par with 'Dog Soldiers', in terms of quality entertainment.
With a fine cast including: Danny Dyer, Laura Harris, Tim McInnerny and Toby Stephens, and a generous amount of DVD extra's (which are excellent by the way), make this comedy horror flick a really worthwhile purchase. Trust me, it's money well spent.
