Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #58

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 a pretty obscure flick, but Mssr. Kitley we wanted to throw it out there anyway to see if anyone took the bait. Yea, I know...bad fish analogy. But see, that fits, since our selection is from one of the best bad fish movies out there. The shot is from ZAAT (1975), also known by numerous alternate titles, including The Blood Waters of Dr. Z, Hydra, Attack of the Swamp Creatures, and others. This half-man/half-catfish/all-megalomaniac movie has even been featured on MST3K, with Mike and the 'bots giving it their best jibes. Yes, it is a bad movie, but it's one of those pretty damn entertaining ones...the kind that we like to bust out come Turkey Day!. (for a list of other gloriously bad flicks as well as a retrospective of this annual tradition, visit

Let's see how you fare with this week's selection:

If you provide the correct answer, your name will be announced next week on the Kitley's Krypt website (, 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!
