Metal musicians in horror movies
Once while in college I walked a mile each way to a video store just to rent "Monster Dog". This was a very cheaply made 80's horror films starring Alice Cooper. It wasn't much good at all yet I was glad that I could say that I saw it. I am probably one of the few people who were glad that they saw this film though. It seems that horror movies and metal seem to go together fairly well. The afore mentioned Mr. Cooper has been is a few horror movies. Gene Simmons and Ozzy were both in the heavy metal themed "Trick or treat". Dee Snider wrote and acted in "Strangeland" although I have never seen it. Also behind the camera Rob Zombie has worked as a writer, producer and director for horror films in recent years. Glenn Danzig is supposedly writing and directing a voodoo/zombie film called Ge Rouge which I am sure will awful if it ever sees the light of day. Anyway I guess a number of metal bands write about dark topics because they like horror movies or horror themes so being in horror films is not too surprising for some of these people.
