Trivia

A second reference to Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) is the ending song, "We'll Meet Again," played at the end of both films. The version played in "Severance" is a hard rock version, however. See more »

Brilliant!
28 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just a quick comment on this movie.....saw it today and it's brilliant! A lot of fun and a great mix of humour and horror... My mates and I were in fits of laughter in places and jumping in others, it's not often that this type of movie works. I have not had this much fun at the cinema in years! I didn't even get a numb bum, which at my local cinema happens quite frequently! My friend and I came out of the movie chatting away about how good it was for at least 45 minutes.... and then every now and then we would remember another really good line or funny/scary moment!

Superbly acted, directed to perfection.

I will be telling everyone I know to go and see this movie and as soon as its out on DVD it will be an instant purchase! Go and see it, its great!
