Better Noise Films, co-producer of ‘The Dirt,’ just debuted a new theatrical trailer for their upcoming horror-thriller feature film, ‘The Retaliators.’
The official synopsis says ‘The Retaliators’ follows the story of an upstanding pastor who 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 new trailer starts by establishing the story of how, when a sinner goes unpunished, he is only free from man’s law but not from God’s wrath. This piece of scripture works perfectly to set up the rest of the trailer which asks the question, what would you do if you got the opportunity to meet the man who took something you loved from you?
This is exactly what happens when our pastor character is given the opportunity to spend just one minute alone with the man who killed his daughter.
The rest of the trailer showcases the repercussions of his actions, as there are those who seek to find the man he has tied up.
Watch as his once perfect world starts to crumble around him and this once righteous man is faced with the realization that, to survive this ordeal, he must break one of the holiest of commandments; to survive, Thou Must Kill.
‘The Retaliators’ is just coming off a successful festival tour during which the film world premiered at London’s Arrow Video FrightFest and then had its US premiere at Screamfest, where it was the opening film. These premieres were followed by more than 25 festivals worldwide, garnering a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
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 movie is anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (Stranger Things).
Watch the film that Dread Central is calling, “a daring and unforgettable viewing experience,” and that The Hollywood News reports as, “A brutal and vivid punch to the gut, The Retaliators is a rock song birthed onto screen and is sure to be a hit with fans of music and horror alike.”
‘The Retaliators’ will be distributed worldwide on September 14, 2022 through CineLife Entertainment and Trafalgar Releasing.
The original soundtrack for ‘The Retaliators,’ featuring songs from artists appearing in the film, will be available from Better Noise Music on September 16. The soundtrack is led by the Mötley Crüe single “The Retaliators” (written by the band’s co-founder and bassist Nikki Sixx, featuring Danny Worsnop from Asking Alexandria, Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, and Matt Brandyberry from From Ashes to New) which is releasing August 5.
