Filmmaker Mike Schiff has spent the better part of the last year touring the country interviewing some of the biggest icons in both the metal and horror worlds to create a documentary titled The History of Metal and Horror. These interviews include people like Tom Savini, Gunnar Hansen, Sid Haig, and John Russo as well as musicians such as Kirk Hammett, Corey Taylor, Alice Cooper, Jonathan Davis, and more. All of these people discuss the relationship that horror and metal have shared over the years and the impact that each have had on each other.
The documentary, “…explores the evolution of both heavy metal and horror and how the two genres have merged over time. It is common for fans of metal to be fans of horror, and vice versa.”
Now Schiff is crowdfunding the release to pay for completion costs, including, but not limited to, getting all the necessary clips from horror films, which could require lawyers and those cost a pretty penny.
