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 1977's freaky-deaky sci-fi thriller, DEMON SEED. Inventor Fritz Weaver designs Proteus, the ultimate computer, complete with artificial intelligence. Problem is, Proteus decides that it's far superior to its creator and devises an elaborate scheme to rape and impregnate Weaver's wife (a wonderful performance from Julie Christie) to create its offspring. Twisted and well realized, it's hard to imagine such a film being made today. God bless the '70s! Robert Vaughn provides the eerie, HAL-like voice of Proteus. Based on a novel by Dean R. Koontz, directed by Donald Cammell.
Let's see how you fare with this week's selection:
Send your guesses, with the subject line "MYSTERY PHOTO", to firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
