Mystery Photo 7-4

Happy Monday! I know it is for me because I’m not at work right now, so that is always a happy day! But since I’m here at the computer working on the site, I guess I really am still at work. Except the fact that I’ve never considered the Krypt as “work”. All for the love of the game, as they say. So, let’s get back to it! Last week’s photo was from Guillermo del Toro’s 1997 film Mimic, which I know he’s not a fan of because of the interference he got, but I still like it. Granted, if we would have gotten to see his full vision, I think it would be even better. But congrats to the following that sent in the correct answer: Dahlia Daniels, Vincent Simonelli, and William Wilson. Great job.

Now this week’s little pic might be pretty easy, or pretty tough. Then again, I say that a lot, don’t I. I guess you’ll just have to take a peek and see where you stand! Remember, just send your answer to me through email (I have a lesser chance of losing it that way!) to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Welcome to another Monday, and our last Mystery Photo for June! That means we’re the summer is 1/3 over and we’re that much closer to Halloween! Okay, so you may not be as excited about it as I am . . . but let’s get to why we are here. I was very happy to see all the correct answers sent in for our last photo, which was from the Amicus film And Now the Screaming Starts! (1973). What an amazing cast, huh? Including the one in the photo, the stellar Rosalie Crutchley, who is probably best known to horror fans as the strange Mrs. Dudley in Robert Wise’s The Haunting (1963). While Amicus was usually known for their anthology films, they could still belt out a great feature film that was effective and entertaining. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Dada Debaser, Chris Dyer, Hector Fernandez, Dave Fronto, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Brett Harrison, Troy Howarth, Gary McGuire, Charles Miller, Gary Miller, Bryan Senn, Michael Shields, Vincent Simonelli, Alan Tromp, and Greg Wojick. Well done!

Now on to this week’s photo. Might be a little different but let us see what you can come up with. Take a peek, put some thought into it, and then send us your guess in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 6-20

Running a little late today but we still got one posted! But before we get to our new one, let’s go over last week’s photo. The photo was from the one and only The Hideous Sun Demon (1958), starring (not to mention producing and directing) Robert Clarke! Such a fun little movie that is more than worth your time if you haven’t gotten around to it. I swear, it’s hard to go wrong with sci-fi/horror flicks of the ’50s. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Chris Dyer, Bob Hartman, Kevin Hart, Bryan Senn, Michael Shields, and Alan Tromp. Well done!

Okay, this one might not be as easy, but we’ll see how sharp some of you are. Take a good look, then send your guess to us in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 6-13

Sorry that I missed updating last week’s photo but was still dealing with the covid! But we’re back to whatever normalcy we were before all of that. It does look like I’ve stumped everyone with the last photo, even with having an extra week. It was from Santo en El tesoro de Drácula, or Santo in the Treasure of Dracula, from 1969. That was the color version that had all the naughty bits that was cut from the original black and white release. Maybe next time.

So, this week’s photo is from one of those . . . underrated classics. Or at least as far as I’m concerned. Take a look and see what you can come up with. Just remember to send your answer to me by email, at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 5-30

Sorry that we didn’t have an updated photo last week but were a bit too busy getting ready for our trip to Ohio for the Columbus Moving Picture Show. But we’re back and somewhat rested up, so here we go. The last photo was from the 1991 H.P. Lovecraft film The Resurrected, starring Chris Sarandon and directed by Dan O’Bannon. While probably a little more graphic than Lovecraft would have expected, it’s a damn fine picture if you ask me! Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Chadwick Saint John, Nick Wilson, and William Wilson. Well done!

On to this week’s photo. Might be a little tricky but we’ll see how you can do with what you’re seeing. Don’t forget to send your answer to me in an email (so I don’t lose it . . . though no guarantee) to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 5-16

Another late posting, but still got it up, so that counts! Always try to get these ready to go over the weekend but seemed to have kept myself busy with some other things. But here we are! Our last photo was from the classic Mexican horror film El Vampiro from 1957, starring Abel Salazar and Germán Robles. If you haven’t seen this one, I can’t express how important of a title it is, not only because it’s a great film, but it shows what the Mexican studious were cranking out in the late ’50s. Congrats to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Todd Barwick, Dave Fronto, Bob Hartman, Kevin Hart, Gary McGuire, Bryan Senn, and Alan Tromp. Well done!

On to this week’s photo. Not as much as an older classic like our last photo, but still a great little film. Check it out and see if you recognize where it is from. Just remember to email me your answer (to jon@kitleyskrypt.com). Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 5-9

A little late in the day for this update but it still counts. Actually, the fact that I’m still alive after getting our lawn, or whatever that wild growth of green and weeds was that I just ran over with my lawnmower, I guess that should be a positive for today, right? And it’s only going to get warmer out, which means it’s almost time for the A/C and avoiding the sunlight even more!

Okay, enough babbling. Last week’s photo was from the Val Lewton classic I Walked with a Zombie (1943), which I had to put up there since we just passed his birthday. Kudos to the following who sent in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Dada Debaser, Dave Fronto, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Troy Howarth, Gary McGuire, Bryan Senn, and Kristin Wicks. Always nice to see fans of the Lewton films out there.

Now on to this week’s photo. Give a little peek and see what you think! Just remember to send your guess to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 5-2

Welcome to May! One month closer to October and Halloween, right? We’re more than halfway there! But let’s get down to business. Our photo from last week, which a lot of people recognized right away, was from the 1958 “Hammer-ish” film Blood of the Vampire, written by Jimmy “Frankenstein” Sangster, which was how he was actually billed on the poster art. While it obviously isn’t a Hammer production, I’ve always found it pretty entertaining. Congrats to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Dave Fronto, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Troy Howarth, Erik Martin, Gary McGuire, Bryan Senn, Vincent Simonelli, and Michael Shields. Well done!

Now believe it or not, but it seems this week’s photo is our first black and white pic of the year. I was kind of surprised myself. So why not have the first one from a classic. You believe me, right? Or am I trying to trick you? Either way, take a look below and see what you think. Just send us an email with your guess to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 4-25

Welcome to our last photo for April. How times flies, huh? A quarter of the year almost behind us. Onward and upward, right? Well, we can only hope. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any correct answers for our last photo. Maybe it was too new? Could be. The name of the film is Malasaña 32, or 32 Malasana Street as it is called on Amazon Prime. It came out in 2020 and directed by Albert Pintó and if you like creepy haunted house stories, this one packs a punch.

But let’s get to this week’s photos. Maybe this one might be a little easier to recognize, especially for those that have a love of older films. Okay, that’s a big enough hint for you! Check it out below and see what you think! Just remember to send your answer to me at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 4-18

Another Monday and another mystery photo! I had every plan to have this ready to go this morning, but you know how mornings can be. But better late than never. Before we get to this week’s photo, let’s go over the one from last week. It was from the strange 1976 film Dark August, starring Kim Hunter. Kudos to Kevin Hart and Troy Howarth for sending in the correct answer!

Now on to this week’s photo. Let’s see if this one is any easier . . . or harder! Take a peek and then send your guess to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!
