A group of British employees of the weapons company Palisade Defense travels to Hungary for a team-building weekend. However they are hunted by a paramilitary force composed of deranged blood-thirsty killers and they have to fight to survive.

Last month I saw "Backwoods" (2008) that has a similar story of a group of employees that goes to an isolated place in the woods to improve teamwork playing paint-ball and other activities. Both "Severance" and "Backwoods" are not a bad movies, meaning that the acting, direction and effects are decent. However, there is a total lack of originality in the story, which is a rip-off or remake of "The Hills Have Eyes", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Wrong Turn", "Timber Falls" and others less famous movies. The leader Richard is extremely stupid to be considered a "top-executive", and I could not see how this silly paint-ball game could improve relationships in work. Due to the lack of originality of the story, I copied part of my review of "Backwoods" to keep the level. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Mutilados" ("Severance")
