Kitley's Krypt MYSTERY PHOTO #78

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 William R. Stromberg's THE CRATER LAKE MONSTER, a little known '70s flick featuring impressive stop motion dinosaur work from special f/x whiz David Allen. (Allen's resume includes a wealth of titles from Charles Band's Full Moon, including Dolls, Subspecies, and Puppetmaster, as well as studio as well as studio films like Caveman, Willow, Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Twilight Zone: The Movie.) In this enjoyably low budget effort, a meteor splashdown into Oregon's Crater Lake unearths a dinosaur egg, which soon hatches whereupon the emerging dinosaur takes to snacking on the locals. Good times!

Let's see how you fare with this week's selection:
