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 Meir Zarchi's classic exploitation film, I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE (aka Day of the Woman) (1978), starring Camille Keaton. A female writer heads off into the countryside, seeking a little solitude in order to begin her latest project. What she encounters is a nightmare, with four local yokels repeatedly tormenting and sexually assaulting her. However, it is the second act, where the attackers have the tables turned on them, that has generated the most controversy, as Keaton doles out some of the most vicious revenge scenarios ever captured on screen. The debate still continues as to whether the film itself is an exercise in misogyny or in female empowerment. Watch it and judge for yourself.
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!
