“Severance” at the Embarcadero
Last year I had the opportunity to fly on Virgin Airlines, where each seat gets its own entertainment center — including a couple hundred movies and TV shows and documentaries to watch (yes, they even had Snakes on a Plane). My companion fell asleep so I decided to watch a horror movie, and saw what I thought was the best horror film last year, and now one of my all-time faves (up there with Evil Dead 2 and Dead and Breakfast). It’s splatstick, and super-gory. The Chron described it as “Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Office Space,” and that pretty much sums it up. Severance opened at the Embarcadero this weekend; don’t miss it if you love black humor, serial killers, badass babes and lots of gore.
