Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #36

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 the 1977 made-for-TV flick, GOOD AGAINST EVIL, which turns up on numerous "public domain" multipacks these days. Written by Hammer scribe Jimmy Sangster and originally intended as a pilot, that's the unmistakable mug of perennial baddie Richard Lynch in the photo itself. The rest of the cast carries their own kitschy charm as well, with TV series mainstay Dack Rambo and future Sex in the City starlet Kim Cattrall. However, the jewel in this crown is character actor par excellence Dan O'Herlihy, who engages in one of the wildest and unintentionally hilarious exorcisms ever captured on film. With crew members clearly hurling stuff from just off camera, O'Herlihy does battle with a lethal (satanic?) pillow trying to suffocate him. Must be seen to be believed.

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