Film: Severance Click for more info

A bunch of people being stalked and murdered in a Eastern European forest. Sound familiar? Well there's no original plot here. In fact, there doesn't seem to be any kind of plot at all. But since this had been billed as another British comedy horror in the vein of Shaun of the Dead I wasn't really expecting one.

After a slow start it eventually got going it and turned out to be quite entertaining. Severance was really hilarious when it wanted to be, but it just didn't do it often enough for me. The horror also came up short; it was more slow burning gruesome torture stuff than the shockers of other films.

Still, it did have it's own charm (I silently cheered for the heros at the end) and is worth catching if you're particularly looking to watch a comedy horror. Otherwise I'd advise waiting for it to hit DVD.
