The Black Dahlia Murder's Trevor Strnad Picks the Most Metal Horror Movies

Our favorite holiday? Easy: Halloween. We’re eagerly counting down the days to All Hallows Eve, and we’re doing it by enlisting some of our favorite rockers to select the “most metal” fright flicks of all time. So check back right here at every day until the big, bad scariest one of them all. Next up, the Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad.

Evil Dead 2
"One of my absolute favorites. Campy as fuck but totally awesome. Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi are both from here in Michigan. One time a couple of friends of mine ran into Bruce down in Royal Oak, whilst looking for ice cream with his wife. We said, 'You're Bruce Campbell!' to which he sharply responded, 'Somebody's gotta be.' Amazing."

Halloween II
“I haven’t seen this one in a while, but I really loved it as a kid, even more so than the first one, which has more of a stalker vibe that, in a few parts, is recreated here. That whole creeping around the neighborhood thing. Definitely more violent than the first one, it takes on a bit of a slasher feel that was similar to Friday The 13th, which I also loved as a youngster. I was obsessed with this kind of shit. The hospital by nightfall is a scary setting for a horror movie. I don’t want to spoil the whole thing for you guys who haven‘t seen it, but Michael Myers comes to the hospital where Jamie Lee Curtis is at--immediately following the first movie--and things get brutal. Michael Myers seems like he’s got some kind of alliance with some kind of evil power. Fucking scary and fucking metal.”
