not kill. The Retaliators, a horror-thriller featuring some of the biggest names in rock and Heavy Metal, will be released worldwide on 14 September 2022, with tickets on sale from 5 August.
“When do the sins of a good man make him bad?” The film is a game of revenge when a pastor uncovers a dark and twisted underworld as he searches for answers surrounding his daughter’s brutal murder.
The very personal and tragic inspiration for this movie’s existence begins with screenwriters Darren Geare and Jeff Geare whose younger sister, Jody Geare, survived a vicious rape assault while walking home alone at night in 2004.
Jody narrowly survived the attack by fighting off her attacker and crawling out of a 20-foot ravine. 12 years later, through DNA advancements, her rapist was caught. Her attacker was found guilty and was sentenced to 22 years in prison.
Throughout the ordeal of the trial, The Geare Brothers began writing an idea that explored the concept of an underground revenge-fantasy service for family members of crime victims. When The Geare Brothers told Jody that they were writing a script inspired by her story, she told them, “Please, if this script ever turns into a movie, use my name. Get my story out in the world. I want to be an inspiration for other girls.”
Jody’s story ultimately is quite an inspirational one. Shortly after her incident, Jody became a firefighter. After following a very successful career with CalFire, today Jody is one of the few female Fire Captains in the United States.
The Retaliators stars Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark), and Joseph Gatt (Game of Thrones) and features on-screen performances from Five Finger Death Punch, Tommy Lee, Papa Roach, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate.
An original soundtrack will also be released alongside the movie through Better Noise Music.
