One thing that sets British films apart from all the others is their unique sense of humor. Dark, sarcastic, ironic and most definitely below the belt. Not everyone understands it, but those that do cherish it. You get a good, solid dose of that in Severance. Directed by Christopher Smith the film introduces us to the sales division of Palisade Defense, a multi-national weapons company. When their team-building trip in Eastern Europe, Hungary to be exact, goes down an unexpected path the team gets face to face experience with the very weapons they are selling.

Hilariously funny, sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek this clever horror-flick is more than just a parody. A gory slasher film that sets itself apart from the rest by its clever narrative and humor. Severed limbs and rolling heads make for quite a unique type of team-building. But it works. If you like dark humor you will enjoy this fun ride, but you better be prepared for some blood, guts and gore spilling.
