Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe once rocked arenas around the world. Then, he rocked adult video stores with a sex tape he made with then-wife and current Julian Assange-advocate Pamela Anderson. After that, we honestly don’t know what he was up to a for a while. Later, he reunited with his old band for a little while. Now, he is coming to scare the shit out of you in a horror film titled The Retaliators (2021, dir. Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and Bridget Smith).
Check out the trailer below!
The Retaliators is one of the first releases from Better Noise Films, a music management company branching into film production. Keen-eyed viewers will also notice appearances by Five Finger Death Punch and Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach as well. The soundtrack contains songs by all the aforementioned musicians, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate, and From Ashes To New, this movie is bound to please any horror fan with a penchant for beer-gut rock.
Boy, we hope there are plenty of other rock veterans making cameos in The Retaliators. Could you imagine Bob Dylan playing The Mummy? Or W. Axl Rose playing Jaws? The possibilities are so exciting.
Blue Noise Films describes The Retaliators below:
The Retaliators is a horror-thriller film, starring Michael Lombardi (FX’s Rescue Me), Marc Menchaca (Ozark) and Joseph Gatt (Game Of Thrones) with special guest appearances by rock music’s biggest names and a soundtrack featuring Tommy Lee, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate, From Ashes To New and more. Written by Darren Geare and Jeff Allen Geare, the high-octane horror thriller is directed by Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and Bridget Smith.
MEN’S HUMOR CONSENSUS
We’ll be honest, Tommy’s role does not look scary at all. In fact, he seems to be playing himself—a.k.a., guy in music studio with a scantily clad woman. It’s cool Tommy is branching out professionally, but we hope takes on a less typecast role in future film efforts. We’d love to see him play FDR one day.
