Jacoby Shaddix and Tommy Lee Star in Horror Movie 'The Retaliators', Releasing in September


From the co-producer of Netflix's The Dirt, the upcoming horror-thriller The Retaliators features special guest appearances by some of rock music’s biggest names, and Variety reports today that the film has been picked up by CineLife and Trafalgar Releasing.


Variety notes, "the Better Noise Films-produced movie will be released in the U.S. and Canada by CineLife Entertainment, and via Trafalgar Releasing for the rest of the world. A worldwide theatrical release is planned for September 14th.


The release follows a successful festival tour, during which the film world premiered at London’s Arrow Video FrightFest and had its US premiere at Screamfest, where it was the opening film, followed by more than 25 festivals worldwide, garnering 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.


In The Retaliators, 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.


Michael Lombardi (FX’s "Rescue Me"), Marc Menchaca ("Ozark") and Joseph Gatt (Dumbo) star.


Written by Darren Geare and Jeff Allen Geare, the high-octane horror-thriller is directed by Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and Bridget Smith.


Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Papa Roach's Jacoby Shaddix, members of Five Finger Death Punch, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate, and more appear on screen and on The Retaliators soundtrack, which is anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein ("Stranger Things").


The soundtrack is led by the Mötley Crüe's upcoming single "The Retaliators" (featuring Danny Worsnop from Asking Alexandria, Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, and Matt Brandyberry from From Ashes to New), which releases on releasing August 5th. The original soundtrack for the film will be available from Better Noise Music on September 16th.


Kymberli Frueh, SVP Programming and Content Acquisitions of Trafalgar Releasing, said, "How unique to see some of your favorite metal and rock idols perform in a horror film that’s destined to be a cult classic.
