METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT, SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR, KORN's JONATHAN DAVIS In Proposed Horror Documentary

According to The Pulse Of Radio, METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett, SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor and Alice Cooper are among the artists interviewed for a proposed new documentary called "The History Of Metal And Horror". The film will explore the longstanding connections between heavy rock and the horror genre, and also feature interviews with KORN frontman Jonathan Davis, ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante, Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein of the MISFITS and more.

Hammett told The Pulse Of Radio that he takes his love for the horror genre very seriously. "I like to think of myself as someone who, like, has a real passion for this stuff and is knowledgeable," he said. "You know, I like to think of myself as a horror movie historian and, you know, I like to think of myself as someone who actually means it. I really love this stuff."

Also interviewed for the film are icons from the world of horror such as "Hellraiser" star Doug Bradley, legendary makeup artist Tom Savini, "The Devil's Rejects" star Sid Haig and Gunnar "Leatherface" Hansen from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

The musicians discuss their love of the genre and the films that scared them when they were young, with Hammett citing "Night Of The Living Dead" and Taylor saying that "Jaws" "scarred me for life."
