Director: Christopher Smith
Starring: Franka Potente, Vas Blackwood, Sean Harris
Release date: January 28 (UK). I’ve not had much in the way of horror in this series so punch yer ticket and mind the doors coz it’s time to board the midnight train to terror. May contain the baffling absence of an emergency exit and spoilers…
To take a small break from the relentless stream of low rent films that I’ve been sitting through, I’ve decided to review a British Horror film, of sorts, that came highly recommended by a variety of people. Unfortunately, I did bother doing a bit of research into it beforehand, although I really should not have done, because if I had not then I would not have noticed that Severance is directed by Christopher Smith, who made one of my most hated horror movies of the last decade in Creep, and that it stars Danny bloody Dyer again. Seriously, it feels like he’s in basically every single British movie of the last 5 years and I’m at a complete loss as to why.
