Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The cast shows spark and gusto, especially Laura Harris as a vulnerable yet intrepid survivor type and Danny Dyer as a bent druggie who straightens out long enough to fight back."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"So there's still a smart office-horror movie left to be made. In the meantime, Severance is just another paycheck."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"Discriminating horror fans should also note that it's the most exhilarating fright flick to hit theatres since last year's The Descent."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"For the most part, the scary parts are the scary parts, the funny parts are the funny parts, and never the twain meet."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A slasher film with a brain, cleverly constructed with strong performances and storyline....The Office meets Deliverance...."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"For the odd at heart, it will be worth the wait."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Like Shaun of the Dead, the movie enthusiastically embraces all the grotesque clichés we love and have come to expect from the form -- turning several on their ear."
‑ Rob Salem, Toronto Star
"Severance is a story of terrible things that couldn't have happened to funnier people."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"The result is a cathartic hoot, relishing its own carefully doled out carnage."
‑ Gianni Truzzi, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Like a special episode of 'The Office,' scripted by Clive Barker."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"It is wonderfully wry, and contains some great gags."
‑ Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press
"At heart, it's a sophisticated variation on Friday the 13th, a splatter film with a slightly more interesting collection of targets."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Sitting through its increasingly sluggish pace feels like, well, work."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"Will surely make you laugh, but the guffaws are few and far between. That's hardly a caveat when you consider the statement made here, though..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Like the Britain of Tony Blair, it's neither bloody awful nor bloody great. Which isn't to say, rest assured, that there isn't plenty of blood."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
