The Squad – original title: El Páramo – is a 2011 Colombian horror feature film directed by Jaime Osorio Marquez. It stars Juan David Restrepo, Andrés Castañeda and Mauricio Navas.
When contact is lost with a military base set deep in the desolate plains of Colombia, a special high mountain command unit is sent to check things out.
On arrival they find only one person alive and gradually the isolation and inability to communicate with the outside world takes its toll on their sanity.
Prisoners of fear, paranoia and a dark secret; they must challenge each other and be prepared to kill one another in order to survive, unless they can work out the true nature of their enemy and unite to defeat it…

“Despite not being able to sustain its slowly building intensity until the end, The Squad is still a remarkably atmospheric and well-crafted horror film for most of its running time, and Jamie Osorio Marquez shows enormous potential as a director with his first feature.” Brendon Tenold, Dread Central
“This movie is awesome if you like a slow plodding film with little to no character development and close ups on peoples faces. I can’t recommend this and I frankly don’t get why it’s getting so much buzz.” Horrorphilia
