Kirk Hammett Says These Are the Underrated Horror Movies You Should Watch This Halloween
Like so many metalheads, Kirk Hammett is a passionate horror aficionado. So I was more than a little curious to read this list he just made for Metal Hammer of ten underrated horror movies to watch this spooky season.
And it’s a solid list, save for one thing, which is that most of these movies are about as underrated as Metallica. I mean, Repulsion is a fucking classic that they show in film schools and psychology programs. A Quiet Place made $340 million worldwide and has a sequel in production. The Witch has a 90% positive critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes. Re-Animator?! Jesus fucking Christ, what horror fan worth their salt doesn’t know and love fucking Re-Animator?!?!?!
Other than that, though, good list. I mean, there are nits to be picked (Tusk, ugh), but the mere fact that he recommends John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness despite that movie containing a total rip-off of “Enter Sandman” is reason enough to check it out.
You can peep the whole list below. Go here to read Kirk’s explanations for his selections.
- In the Mouth of Madness
- Ghost Story
- A Quiet Place
- The Witch
- The Ritual
- The Evil Within
- The Love Witch
