If you’re in the mood for some contemporary chills this Halloween then take note as the 2011 Colombian film THE SQUAD marches in on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time in the U.S. from Scream Factory on October 21st.
We've been following Jaime Osorio Marquez's THE SQUAD for several years, bringing you the tense trailer for the film back in December of 2011 and following that up in 2012 with a cool quad poster. There has also been rumblings of a U.S. remake of THE SQUAD since 2011, but we haven't heard many updates on that particular project in a while. Now Scream Factory is set to bring us THE SQUAD on DVD and Blu-ray just in time for Halloween.
When all communication with a remote military base situated in an area of intense guerrilla activity is lost, a unit of soldiers is sent on a mission to regain contact with their brothers-in-arms. Fearing the base has been taken over by enemy forces, they arrive to find the place littered with corpses and the walls daubed with blood and what appear to be magical symbols intended to ward off evil. Confused and isolated, the soldiers find themselves gripped by inexplicable feelings of fear, mistrust and paranoia that leads them to question the nature and identity of their enemy.
Special features are said to include a making-of featurette and the original theatrical trailer.
