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 Don Sharp's awesomely weird and wacky 1972 flick, PSYCHOMANIA. The leader of a motorcycle gang (Nicky Henderson) learns the secret of immortality: He kills himself and his fellow gang members (dubbed The Living Dead) place him in a grave on his bike...which miraculously brings him back to life! Soon, he's convincing the rest of the free-wheelers to off themselves all over the place, only to return and terrorize the whole of London. In-saaaaaane! Sharp directed a number of interesting genre pics, including Hammer's Kiss of the Vampire and Curse of the Fly. George Sanders, who appears as a aging devil worshiper, committed suicide after filming completed. Rumors of his having returned on a motorcycle remain unsubstantiated.
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!
