Take a look at the movies synopsis (from and then the trailer! I think this looks like a blood soaked, high body count, fun as all hell movie.

The Squad
New UK quad poster for the Colombian film The Squad. Currently, there is no US release date for this film, but I think we need to keep our fingers crossed. The trailer takes tension to all new levels. See below for the synopsis from, the quad poster, and the trailer.
Jaimie Osorio Marquez’s Colombian horror film is set in the foggy mountains of Colombia where nine soldiers trudge through muddy terrain in search of an outpost that they believe has been invaded by guerrillas. As they approach their target, one of them is brutally injured, forcing them to prematurely enter the base instead of waiting for backup.

Once inside, they’re greeted a pile of dead bodies and a series of ritualistic markings meant to ward off the devil. After discovering a lone, traumatized survivor and a cryptic event log, the men wait, sifting through their own differences with each other. Trapped, confused and cut off from the outside world, they begin to feel the strain of isolation closing in around them. They’ll grasp at anything to resolve what happened there…and what is going to happen to them.
