Los Angeles, CA – The hor­ror cura­tors at Scream Factory have announced an October 21 Blu-ray and DVD release of 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 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, the men aban­don their human­i­ty and turn sav­age­ly on one anoth­er.
