Michael Lombardi got his first chance to be in a horror film. With The Retaliators, the story is terrifying and bonkers. Audiences will be amazed by so many rock musicians’ guest appearances in the movie.

This horror-thriller also stars Marc Menchaca (Ozark) and Joseph Gatt (Dumbo). There are plenty of guest appearances and soundtrack contributions featuring Tommy Lee, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, The Hu, Ice Nine Kills, Escape The Fate, From Ashes to New, and many more.

Samuel Gonzalez Jr. and Bridget Smith directed the movie from the screenplay written by Darren Geare and Jeff Allen Geare.

Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:

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.
