Mike “McBeardo” McPadden’s new book Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos and Cult Zombies Amok In The 666 Most Ear-And-Eye-Ripping Big-Screen Films Ever! should live on every movie fan’s shelf.  McPadden injects humor, passion and some giddy delight into sharing these curated treasures with the masses, and it’s infectious. A conversation with Alice Cooper, The Godfather of Heavy Metal Movies, helps set the tone at the beginning of the book and McPadden is more than capable of taking it from there.

While you’ll certainly debate the contents with friends (and possibly mortal enemies), you’ll keep turning the pages for more mayhem and hidden gems.

In this interview we talk about which movie came the closest to making McPadden puke, why werewolves can’t get the same love as vampires and zombies, and how Leonard Maltin’s’ “Bomb”s fueled his passions.
