This Friday is Friday the 13th, so it seems appropriate to have some scary news!
Kirk Hammett of Metallica is a known horror movie buff and collector of all kinds of scary memorabilia.
When asked for his favorite horror films, Mr. Hammett tells Toronto's Cosmo Music:
"The first 'Frankenstein' movie is incredible, and holds up even tho this day in terms of atmosphere and story and pure creepiness. The first 'Dracula' movie holds up in terms of story, and Bela Lugosi is the Count Dracula. His performance of Dracula, there's nothing that ever topped it. There's people who have played Dracula since Lugosi and do a really, really great job, but Bela Lugosi will always be the guy... I would also say 'The Mummy'. That movie, it's great. It has a subplot of reincarnation and another subplot of romance. I can do without the romance part... [Boris] Karloff's portrayal of Imhotep, the reincarnated version of the mummy, is so evil and so creepy. It's amazing."
