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 featured the familiar mug of genre stalwart John Carradine, "the Bard of the Boardwalk," so dubbed for his habit of reciting Shakespeare on the unlikeliest of sets. Mr. Carradine was never noted for his selectivity when it came to projects, the man just wanted to work. And work he did, with over 300 film and television credits to his name. Pictured here is 1957's THE UNEARTHLY, perhaps one of his lesser efforts, co-starring opposite Allison (Attack of the 50 Foot Woman) Hayes and Tor (Plan 9 from Outer Space) Johnson. But Carradine gives it his all as a mad doctor who uses patients at his isolated psychiatric institute as subjects in an attempts to create longevity by surgically installing an artificial gland in their skulls.
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!
