HERE ARE ALL THE JUICY DETAILS:
MOVIE: THE SQUAD
"A TERRIFYINGLY TENSE NIGHTMARE!" RATING: 4 STARS.
Bludgeoningly bleak from the off, this Is a Colombian film that sees a group of soldiers arrive at a deserted military base where the blood-spattered interior suggests that some form of massacre has occurred – only there are zero corpses. When the squadies then find an old hag bricked up in a room covered in occult-esque talismans, they’re thrust into a world of weird that sets them mentally unravelling.
Light on both exposition and dialogue (the latter being a plus for those who hate subtitles), the flick’s strength lies in its dimly lit visuals, simplistic execution and convincing performances. Together these qualities create a gritty atmosphere that makes the supernatural scenario seem wholly believable, while taking terror levels off the scale as you’re sucked deeper into the troops’ deadly ordeal.
Granted, there’s little in the way of hardcore gore, and you won’t find any in-your-face shocks either. But if you fancy a slice of slow-burning bleakness with the kind of ambiguous conclusion that’ll probably have you babbling about it for hours afterwards, this’ll do nicely.
This is an EXCLUSIVE, ADVANCE PREVIEW, as THE SQUAD isn’t released on DVD until 18 JUNE 2012. SEE IF FIRST AT CUT!
