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 one of Hammer's non-Gothic "thrillers," DIE! DIE! MY DARLING! (aka Fanatic) (1965), and as you can see, it's a vibrant diversion from their stark black and white efforts in hue, but just as compelling in execution. The story focuses on a young woman being terrorized by her fiance's demented mother...who blames her for her son's death. Not only does it feature screen legend Tallulah Bankhead in her final theatrical role (although she did lend her voice to 1966's Rankin/Bass animated The Daydreamer, as well as a turn on TV's Batman as "Black Widow"), it co-stars the comely Stefanie Powers and an up-and-coming Donald Sutherland as a dullard handyman. The Bava-esque color scheme comes courtesy of Canadian-born director Silvio Narizzano (Georgy Girl).
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 (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!
