Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #41

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 classic, once-long-missing-from-the-public-eye slasher THE BURNING (1981). Notable for a variety of reasons, why this one took sooooo long to make it to the shiny silver disc format is a question best left to the experts. The good news is that Cropsy and his distinctive shears are finally among us so that everyone can take a good look at Tom Savini's superb makeup f/x (right up there with The Prowler and Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter as far as bloodletting goes). Also, keep an eye out for rising stars Jason Alexander, Fisher Stevens and Holly Hunter. Add in former Miramax head honcho Harvey Weinstein as producer and Rick Wakeman (of the rock group YES fame) providing the "killer" score, you've got a recipe for a good time Saturday night. Check it out!!!

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