If you’ve read any of my other articles you know that my interests are pretty wide and varied: from anime to comic book shows and movies to reading and so on and so forth. One interest that I have not been able to write about for this website yet is music. And now I get to write about music and movies? Yes! Let’s do this!
Papa Roach. Ice Nine Kills. Escape the Fate. Five Finger Death Punch. No, I am not playing that game where you put together a fantasy music festival lineup. These are just some of the bands featured on the soundtrack of THE RETALIATORS. But wait! There’s more. Not only are these groups on the soundtrack, but they are also starring in this horror thriller. Seriously!
So what’s it all about? Here is the synopsis from the official website:
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.
The movie stars March Menchaca (Ozark), Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me), and Joseph Gatt (Game of Thrones) along with special guest appearances by rock stars. Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and Bridget Smith are the directors of this what looks to be badass film and if you don’t believe me, here is a teaser trailer:
For news and updates, be sure to check out the official website or stay tuned to Film Combat Syndicate. I am hoping to get to watch this one. The movie will be released in 2021, but there is no specific date yet. In the meantime, if you’re a fan of Papa Roach, The Retaliators website has a music video you should watch.
