Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #25

Another week, another MYSTERY PHOTO!

Jon Kitley, pillar of the Chicago Horror Community and head honcho over at KITLEY'S KRYPT, wants to challenge your horror knowledge. Week in, week out, he posts a Mystery Photo - sometimes from an obscure horror title, sometimes just an unusual shot from a well-known classic. We figured our faithful Claw readers would enjoy the challenge!

Last week's photo was from STING OF DEATH (1965), a wonderfully cheesy flick courtesy of Florida's own William Grefe. If you've ever wondered what a half-man/half-jellyfish would look like, now you know. Apparently, it looks just like a guy with a plastic bag over his head. If you enjoy those B-movies (or as we like to call them in November, "turkeys"), this is vintage stuff here, folks. Not only do you get to ogle plenty of male and female flesh before they succumb to the, er, hideous, er, tentacles of the, er, monster, but you also get to rock out to the soulful tunes of none other than "special singing guest star" (yes, he's billed that way) Paul Anka! Sting of Death is available on DVD along with Grefe's Death Curse of Tartu.

Let's see how well you fare with this week's offering:

If you provide the correct answer, your name will be announced next week on the Kitley's Krypt website (http://www.kitleyskrypt.com), along with a new photo. Even if you don't know the answer, we welcome any sorta-kinda educated guess! So, send in your emails today and good luck!
