Yesterday morning we told you somewhere amidst the 37,000 news stories that we ran about a new ghostly tale that found the military encountering some form of paranormal activity. Lo and behold today we have artwork, stills, and even the synopsis. We’re sneaky like that.
Once known as El Paramo and retitled to The Squad, check out the goods on Jaime Mario Osorio Marquez’s feature film debut below.
All contact with a military base high in the desolate wastelands of Colombia has been lost. The authorities – believing the base to have fallen to a terrorist attack – send a nine-man squad to investigate. When they arrive, the men discover a shocking scene of carnage and only one survivor – a mute woman in chains.
Gradually the isolation, the inability to communicate with the outside world, and the impossibility of escape begin to undermine the sanity of the soldiers. They start to question the identity of their enemy and the true nature of the strange, silent woman. Is she a terrorist? A victim? Or something more sinister? Something supernatural? … Paranoia takes root. Prisoners of fear and the terrible secret they share, their humanity abandoned, the men turn savagely on each other.
