Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Severance finds inspiration where horror and comedy intersect."
‑ Christian Toto, Washington Times
"Gets the mix of gore and grins just right."

‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"...you know that you are about to go on a ride that encompasses comedy, horror and thriller genres."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
