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 »

Goofs

When George is hanging upside down it is clearly visible that his nostrils are blocked, this to prevent blood from seeping into them. See more »

Fantastic Film!
11 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw a screening of this film recently and loved it! It is truly original and one of the best horror/black comedy films I have ever seen.

The story is gripping and the cast is excellent - some of the finest British actors give star performances - in particular a stellar performance from Danny Dyer.

Normally this type of film can be all blood and guts, but Severance manages to combine the horror element (ie enough blood & gore!) with a gripping story line which keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the film.

You will be either clutching the person next to you or howling with laughter as the filmmakers take you on an extreme roller-coaster ride. I will be surprised if this film is not a huge hit!!
