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 Dario Argento's finest giallo outings, 1982's TENEBRAE (aka Unsane). All spinning cameras and spraying arteries, The Italian Hitchcock brings home a winner with his tale of a horror writer (Anthony Franciosa) stalked by a killer in Italy while on a book tour. Argento’s screenplay (one of his best) elevates the film above the standard giallo whodunnit formula. Numerous virtuoso sequences, including one where the camera exits a window, tracks all the way over the roof, then enters a different window on the other side of the house. And let's not forget the dog chase.
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!
