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!
Our last photo was from none other than Mario Bava's classic horror offering, BLACK SABBATH (1963). Bava teams with Boris Karloff and American International for this well-polished and extremely atmospheric anthology of fright. The first tale, “The Drop of Water,” has a greedy woman stealing a ring off the corpse (from whence our Mystery Photo is derived) she has been called to prepare. Later at her home, someone comes a’callin’. Next, the gorgeous Michele Mercier contends with calls from her dead convict lover in “The Telephone” and finally, “The Wurdulak” has all-purpose AIP hero Mark Damon showing up at a terrified household run by a vampiric patriarch. All the stories are introduced by a droll Karloff with Bava’s exquisite use of light and color are on glorious display.
**DUE TO INTERNET ISSUES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, LAST WEEK'S MYSTERY PHOTO COULD NOT BE POSTED. IN ORDER TO KEEP ON THE KRYPTIC SCHEDULE, WE WILL DISPLAY SAID PHOTO FOR OUR VIEWERS' ENTERTAINMENT, AS WELL AS THE CURRENT WEEK'S OFFERING. TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE, AS THEY SAY**
Send your guesses to: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
