Kirk Hammett is not only one of metal’s most prolific electric guitar players, he's also one of the music world’s biggest fans when it comes to all things horror.

From his Ouija Board ESP and recently acquired, creepy-as-hell Nosferatu model, to his horror-themed Portals solo EP, Hammett’s appreciation for the genre is pretty clear to see.
