A replica of the Donny Darko bunny suit. Hammet owns the real thing
Horror coffee table book
Not much of a reader but a fan of Metallica? You may want to pick up a new hobby and crack a book open. Kirk Hammet is planning to release a book, but it’s not gonna be a huge and dense novel, it’s gonna be a coffee table book, so there won’t be that much reading. The plan is for the book to highlight Hammet’s monster-movie memorabilia. Too Much Horror Business will feature hundreds of items from the guitarist’s personal collection. He’s got the annotated script from the early Dracula movie and even that creepy bunny suit from the cult classic Donny Darko. So, there’ll be a ton of pics and captions and descriptions written by Hammet. Expect to pick that up for yourself and your friends October 1st, just in time for Halloween.
