Another great Danny Dyer movie. A firm sends its employees on a little retreat as a reward for doing a good job.
Problem is there is someone there who doesn't want anyone to get out alive.
Very suspenseful and full of action

An absolutely great funny horror movie, the "steak pie" with the human teeth in it was a hoot! plenty of blood and guts for all to enjoy, scrumptious.

Bit of an old, tongue in cheek horror film but enjoyable when you're after something easy going but scary too!

This film is not for the faint-hearted - its a dark comedy, and its good.

Danny Dyer. The name conjures up images of some of the greatest films set to grace the big screen of all time. Yeah... right. His films (post ‘The Business’ and that one about football hooligans that was kind of similar to the one Frodo was in have hardly set the Box Office ablaze). However, somehow he still gets works. And for a good reason – no matter how bad his films get, we – the people – still seem to watch them.

And that’s just the bad ones! ‘Severence’ is actually pretty good. So, er, we have a group of people (including Mr Dyer) on a trip to somewhere remote (do you care?) where they get picked off one by one. Yeah, it’s basically a ‘slasher’ movie only with white-collar office workers (if you can believe that Danny Dyer would ever be employed by any self respecting office) instead of dumb, blonde, American teenagers (although I should mention that one of Danny’s co-workers is actually American and blonde – I wouldn’t dare say ‘dumb’).

So, if you’ve seen one slasher film then you’ve basically seen them all – including this. Just don’t take it as an excuse not to indulge. Yes, it’s nothing new, but it sure is fun. The dialogue is snappy and the characters fun to watch. And, if that’s not enough, you have the gore. Again, for a low budget film with no stars (sorry, Danny – no offence, but you’re hardly Tom Cruise) the gore is nicely done and pretty sick (special mention to a missing leg scene).

And, if nothing else, there is possibly the most amusing use even of a rocket launcher (if not the sickest – technically) that even rivals the RPG fired in Chris Morris’ ‘Four Lions.’

Don’t expect a great movie with Oscar-worthy performances, or self-realising character arcs. Basically, if you like daft, cheesy slasher films then you should enjoy this. And if you also appreciate Danny Dyer’s ‘acting’ abilities then you’ll get double for your money.

Black as pitch; this mid-noughties offering from director Christopher Smith involves a group of dysfunctional employees of Pallisade weapons manufacturers, who are sent to a remote forest in Hungary on a team-building weekend. Led by oily loser Tim McInnerney, the team soon realise that they are being hunted and their pursuers are using the very weapons that they are employed to sell. Toby Stephens is well-cast as the arrogant Harris; the execrable Danny Dyer plays oversexed drug-user Steve and an assortment of C-listers make up the ensemble cast.

The film treads an awkward line between comedy and horror - like Shaun of the Dead it occasionally melds the two genres successfully, but unlike Simon Pegg's modern classic it misses the target more than it hits it. McInnerney is as good as ever; Dyer is as obnoxious as ever, and the rest of the cast are merely `cannon-fodder'. It is hard to like any of the cast and difficult to feel any pathos as they are gradually slaughtered. The film does have a couple of great moments - such as when the team discover that they are eating a pie containing human flesh, or when McInnerney attempts to bully the Hungarian coach driver and is subsequently humiliated. Other than that it is pretty ordinary.
