Severance...

Netflix has an interesting feature for it's members which is called Instant Watch. You can pick from over a 1000+ movies and watch them on your computer. Nice feature, but most of the movies are not worth watching... no new releases. However, in my effort to find more British dark comedy, I found Severance. This movie is funny... not as funny as the British movie The Cottage, but funny none the less. It is gory like The Cottage, but the humor is a little more subtle at times. Severance is quite entertaining and I'm happy to pass it along to you. There's a trailer for the movie at the end of this post. The movie is about a group of employees from a defense weapons company being sent on a team building "mission" in Eastern Europe. Instead of team building, the team is killed off one by one. They must now learn to work together to save their lives. Along the way, there is an ample amount of humor and gory to make the dark comedy lover in you happy. It's interesting to me that I have really began to like this type of film, since I never have before. It's not campy, it's not "B"... it's just good. So if you have Netflix, pop up the Instant Watch and check out Severance... otherwise, go to The Red Box or your local video store and rent it. It is worth a watch!
