Watch the official trailer for “The Retaliators,” a new horror film featuring a bevy of rock and metal musicians

Members of Five Finger Death Punch along with Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee and Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix have been tapped to appear in a new horror film, and that film just released its official trailer on Wednesday (July 13).

The movie, called “The Retaliators,” was put tougher by all three bands’ label and management company, Better Noise, which is starting to produce movies. It also features members of The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate and more. Watch the thrilling new trailer below.

Five Finger Death Punch lead vocalist Ivan Moody plays Vic Kady in the show, described as “the VP of a gun-running motorcycle club who will stop at nothing to find his missing brother, Ram.” Shaddix plays Quinn Brady, “a despicable convict who gets released from prison and goes after the cop who took him down. This unleashes a grisly chain of events.”

“The Retaliators” is a long time coming. Two years ago, the movie was announced as Shaddix’s acting debut. More recently, in May, Five Finger Death Punch used footage from the film in their “Darkness Settles In” video. The film will debut on Sept. 16.

Of the storyline, the official movie summary states, “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.”

“Music and film create powerful emotional connections with audiences that go even deeper when combined with social media, radio and touring,” Allen Kovac, Better Noise founder and CEO, said in a statement. “As shown by Rocket Man, Bohemian Rhapsody and The Dirt, social media, music streaming, radio and touring drive those connections even deeper, creating three to five-fold increases in music consumption which, in turn, drives back to film and video.”
