If you love heavy metal and horror, then you’re probably going to want to check out the new film The Retaliators. Full of gnarly gore and an absolutely stacked list of cameos from musicians like Tommy Lee and Ivan Moody.
Read the full synopsis:
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.

In his review out of last year’s FrightFest, Dread Central’s David Gelmini wrote:
The Retaliators dares to ask the question of how far people can go before they lose all traces of humanity. With a climactic scene full of gore and brutality, this is a viscerally entertaining film that makes us wonder how far we will truly go to protect what’s ours.
Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark), and Joseph Gatt (Game of Thrones) headline the cast alongside 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’s Ivan Moody, Zoltan Bathory, and Chris Kael, Papa Roach, Jaya of The Hu, Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills, Eva Under Fire’s Amanda Lyberg, Matt Brandyberry, Danny Case, Lance Dowdle, and Matt Madiro of From Ashes to New, Cory Marks, and Dan Murphy and Miles Franco of All Good Things. The film is also anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (Stranger Things).
The Retaliators comes exclusively to theaters on September 14, 2022.
