The Objective

Just finished watching “The Objective,” in which a CIA Special Ops, under the pretense of searching for a missing nuke, takes a battle-hardened squad of GIs out on an excursion through hell, in a part of Afghanistan in which even the locals won’t tread. Well-acted, compelling story, and a worthwhile film. I’d recommended seeing it, though a cautionary word about some really gruesome and disturbing scenes. However, the film has left me wondering regarding the paranormal aspects, that is, assuming that these were actually based on anything concrete, or if they’re purely fictitious and imaginative. I don’t want to give away spoilers, or start hashing through the plot, so I’ll just request that if you’ve seen this film and can point me to or provide any info on what was behind the bizarre phenomena, in their historical, mystical (& other?) contexts, I’d appreciate.
