Severance (2006)★★★★☆


I wasn’t expecting too much out of this one so it was a pleasant surprise to find that I rather liked it. Sure, it could just be the British accents. I do love a British accent.

But really, this was a horror comedy that did pretty well on both fronts. After a few bad attempts at this genre I’m happy to have found a new one to recommend.

The music is a bit much at times and there are definitely parts that drag on, but for the most part this is a cute, clever little black comedy that I really enjoyed.

The cast was good and had believable group chemistry, the antagonists are scary and not entirely predictable, and there’s a decent payoff at the end.

There are a few graphic parts but nothing too gruesome so this should have decently wide appeal.
