Presentato con giudizi eccelsi da Rotten Tomatoes durante il suo festival cinematografico 2021-2022 e nei più prestigiosi festival di film horror tra cui FrightFest e ScreamFest, il film è incentrato su un pastore che scopre un mondo sotterraneo oscuro e contorto mentre cerca risposte sul brutale omicidio di sua figlia. Lo storyboard è stato ispirato da eventi reali, ossia quando gli scrittori Darren Geare e la sorella di Jeff Allen Geare, Jody Geare, sono stati brutalmente aggrediti mentre tornavano a casa di notte. La domanda che ci si pone all’interno del film è: se potessi passare un minuto da solo con la persona che ha ucciso la persona amata… lo prenderesti? Continua a scorrere per leggere il comunicato in inglese.
Dread Central – “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”

CEO of Better Noise Films and film producer, Allen Kovac, notes: “It was great to see the film in the theater last night. A fantastic story and collaboration with artists and actors. It was truly validating to see The Retaliators script come to life in the theater with movie fans”.

FrightFest – Paul McEnvoy, Director of FrightFest “The Retaliators rocked and shocked the FrightFest audience. The fantastic screening invoked huge cheers and screams throughout at the electrifying event. Loaded with genuine horror thrills The Retaliators is a sensational crowd-pleasing cinematic thrill ride”

ScreamFest’s opening night film takes audiences on a riveting and bloody revenge mission with a unique blend of 80’s action/horror and crime genre influences.  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.

Additionally, the film boasts a high-octane original soundtrack and cameos from some of the biggest names in rock music, including Mötley Crüe’s Tommy LeeFive Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody, Zoltan Bathory, and Chris KaelPapa RoachJaya of The HuSpencer Charnas of Ice Nine KillsEva Under Fire’s Amanda LybergMatt 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, anchored by an original score from Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (“Stranger Things”).

Boston Herald – Lead actor Michael Lombardi quoted “This film’s story is begins in a style that has a Joe Dante ‘Gremlins’ small town Spielbergian beginning. Then it blows up into this crazy Tarantino- esque third act. But the provocative question — and the theme of the film is: If you had a minute alone with the person who killed your loved one, would you take it?”

Original soundtrack music featuring songs from artists appearing in the film will be available from Better Noise Music on September 16th. The soundtrack is led by the Mötley Crüe track “The Retaliators Theme Song (21 Bullets)”, co-written by Nikki Sixx and James Michael of Sixx:A.M. and featuring Danny Worsnop from Asking Alexandria, Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, and Matt Brandyberry from From Ashes to New, released August 5th.
