“You know it does seem like a zombie apocalypse is coming,” says Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, “like we’re at the very beginning of a zombie invasion. I would imagine this is how it starts and just never stops.”

So what’s Kirk’s gameplan if the zombies invade? “Very high walls,” he says, “Very high walls.”

As an avid collector of horror memorabilia, Hammett is well studied in the ways of zombies, ghouls and all kinds of creepers. Here, Hammett chooses his Top Five Zombie Movies of All Time.
