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 I BURY THE LIVING (1958), starring Richard Boone as a new caretaker who discovers that he may hold the secrets of life and death, depending on where he sticks the gravemarkers on his cemetery plot chart. It's a black-and-white thriller directed by Albert Band (father to Full Moon/Dark Castle head honcho Charles Band) that manages to generate a substantial amount of tension despite its low budget. Widely available on myriad "public domain" box sets, this is one well worth checking out.
**ONCE AGAIN, 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. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THIS INCONVENIENCE AND HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL FROM HERE ON OUT**
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!
