The killer horror-thriller The Retaliators, from the co-producers of The Dirt, is out today! In the film, which currently has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score, “An upstanding pastor uncovers a dark and twisted underworld as he searches for answers surrounding his daughter’s brutal murder. A high-octane original soundtrack and cameos from some of the biggest names in rock music set the tone as this horror-thriller reveals a game of revenge played using a new set of rules.”
The all-star cast includes Michael Lombardi (“Rescue Me”), Marc Menchaca (“Ozark”), and Joseph Gatt (“Game of Thrones”), as well as Jacoby Shaddix, frontman of Papa Roach, making his acting debut. The Retaliators features cameos and music by Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate, and many more, all anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (“Stranger Things”).
Directed by Bridget Smith, Michael Lombardi, and Samuel Gonzalez, Jr., the screenplay was written by Darren Geare and Jeff Allen Gear.
