London, UK – Better Noise Films (The Dirt, Sno Babies) have announced the World Premiere of their latest production, The Retaliators, at London’s Arrow Video FrightFest 2021. The rock and roll gorefest follows a broken pastor as unimaginable grief leads him to depths of depravity he never imagined. The Retaliators will world premiere at FrightFest on Monday, 30 August.
Michael Lombardi (“Rescue Me”), Marc Menchaca (“Ozark”), and Joseph Gatt (“Game of Thrones”) headline the cast alongside Jacoby Shaddix, front man 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, anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (“Stranger Things”).
Ahead of the premiere, Better Noise President Dan Waite shared his delight: “Since the early days of production, we’ve always thought FrightFest would be the perfect place for this film to make its premiere. The Retaliators is an unapologetic horror film at its core, and we’re thrilled that Paul McEvoy and the rest of the FrightFest team understand our vision and have extended an invite for this story to be a part of its epic legacy in the genre. We also look forward to further bridging the relationship between rock music and horror films with this project.”
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.
