What are critics saying?


Village Voice by

When Smith's Grand Guignol tableaux are strung together, they lack any forward momentum. Some take inspired comic flight. The rest crash to the ground and, like so much else in Severance, go splat.


Variety by Derek Elley

Escalating blend of black humor and grisly goings-on in the wilds of Hungary fully delivers in its latter half.


Film Threat by Pete Vonder Haar

What's more refreshing about Severance is how the movie's humor offsets the violence, and even that is pretty restrained (at least by modern standards).


Rolling Stone by Peter Travers

Director and co-writer Christopher Smith, mischievously blending "The Office" with "Friday the 13th," keeps things fierce and funny enough to give Steve Carell ideas.


The A.V. Club by Scott Tobias

Severance still seems a few rewrites away from living up to its potential, but it's remarkable how much just a modicum of wit can spice up the standard backwoods slice-and-dice. Scaring people with a horror film is easy; entertaining them takes a little skill.
