Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #46

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 Netherlands writer/director Dick Maas' ode to the inexplicable terror we all feel when we step through those elevator doors: THE LIFT. Except in this case, there's a good reason to be afraid - this elevator is out for blood! It's almost as silly as it sounds, but Maas does a great job of building suspense and playing upon the ridiculousness of a killer lift, since its victims are hardly likely to listen to anyone's warnings. A minor success in its homeland and abroad, an 2001 English remake, The Shaft aka Down starring a then-rising (get it? get it?) Naomi Watts, ultimately came to pass.

Now let's take a gander at this week's selection:
