Today Twitch Film has the trailer for a new military horror film from Colombia called The Squad:
“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 worldand 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 moresinister? Something supernatural… Paranoia takes root. Prisoners of fear and the terrible secret they share, their humanity abandoned, the men turn savagely on each other.”
It definitely looks and sounds interesting, almost an Event Horizon mixed with District 9, with a little bit of Black Hawk Down mixed in. The Colombian film industry is still small and relatively unknown at this point, but after seeing this trailer, I think it’s safe to say this film belongs on the world stage and many people will be interested to see it.
