Metallica Guitarist Reveals His World Renowned Monster Movie Memorabilia Collection [VIDEO]

Not only is Kirk Hammett the lead guitarist for Metallica, one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time, but he’s also the curator of one of the world’s finest collections of monster-movie memorabilia, a collection few people have ever seen. From Bela Lugosi’s annotated Dracula script to the creepy Donnie Darko bunny suit to cool model kits from the 1960s, Hammett has amassed hundreds of items over the years, including priceless international collectibles as well as the quirkier toys of his youth.

In 2012, Hammett released a photo/coffee table book titled Too Much Horror Business where Kirk finally unveils his near-mythical treasure trove of rare posters, props, costumes, and toys from the early silent classics to more modern fare.

Hammett told RollingStone.com, “”I’ve been into horror movies ever since I was five years old. I started collecting horror-related stuff when I was six years old – monster magazines, comic books and whatnot. Over the last five years or so, I started to get a few items that made my collection just that much better. I mean, really raised the overall quality of my collection.”
