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 MACABRE (1958), schlockmeister William Castle's inaugural flight producing and directing his first horror/thriller about a missing child and dark family secrets. The film itself isn’t bad at all, though it’s probably best remembered for Castle’s gimmick of insurance policies against moviegoers’ “Death by Fright.” Next year, Castle would truly hit his stride with House on Haunted Hill and The Tingler, both starring the inimitable Vincent Price. Here, the most familiar face to modern viewers will probably be Jim Backus, of Rebel Without a Cause and Gilligan's Island fame.
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!
