I'd love to go to something like this.
I would LOVE to go to one of Kirk Hammet's horror conventions.He is the lead guitarist of my favorite band, Metallica, and he is a HUGE horror fanatic.He also has a small video called "Too Much Horror Business."
That was amazeballs! I'd so go to one of those cons!
I don't know the details about the Hammet collection but Maskfest happens every summer in Indianapolis. There's typically several collections on hand via major collectors like Daniel Roebuck etc as well as a good mix of vintage and repro oldies. It's a very unique horror con in that regard... A cheap flight and admission and you're there.. I'll be working the Evil Pumpkins table as always!
The Blood Curdling Blog of Monster Masks has pretty good coverage of this stuff as well..
i was fortunate enough to meet Kirk about a year ago when his book "Too Much Horror Business" came out.He did a signing at a Barnes and Noble in NYC. I even got to ask him if there was any thing he wanted for his collection he was not able to obtain. A random poster apparently. There is a convention in NJ called Chiller Theatre coming up in May and October every year, real good time. Also Philly has Monster Mania
