Mystery Photo 4-6

Welcome to April. It seems that there could be a lot of April Fool’s jokes going on, but unfortunately, what is going on is no joke. I hope everyone out there is taking precautions to make them and their loved ones safe. We’ll get through this. It will take some time, but we’ll make it. Maybe it will just appreciate what we do have a little more when all is said and done. Okay… let’s get back to keeping our minds on something positive! Our photo from last week was from the 2017 film Pyewacket and yes, that is Laurie Holden, definitely seeing better days. The only correct answer we got was from Kristin Wicks, so kudos goes out to her!

For this week’s photo, we’re going back to black and white. So take a look and see if you recognize what is going on in this shot and what movie it is from. Just sent us an email to Good Luck!



Mystery Photo 3-30

Welcome to our last Mystery Photo of March of 2020. A lot has happened even since our last photo, but we’re hoping these bring you a little bit of distraction. Our last photo was definitely a tough one, since we only got one correct answer and that was from Hoby Abernathy. It is from an obscure title called Sfida al Diavolo (1963), which translates to Challenge of the Devil. If you’re looking for it on IMDB, it is under the title Katarsis. It actually stars Christopher Lee in a minor but pivotal role. I’m not sure I would suggest anybody run out and find a copy unless you are a die-hard Lee fan and need to see it.

I think this week’s photo will be a little easier. Well… maybe. So take a look below and see what you can come up with. Just send your answers to us in an email, to Good Luck!


Mystery Photo 3-23

Better late than never, right? The plan to have this post this morning got a little delayed when the alarm clock didn’t go off as planned. But here we are now. Last week’s photo was from 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), that while I did have an issue or two with the ending, I thought it was a great little flick, especially due to John Goodman giving one hell of a performance. Kudos to Hoby Abernathy and Todd Barwick for sending in the correct answer.

Now onto this weeks pictorial puzzle. Take a gander and see what you can come up with. Remember, just send us an email to with your guess. Good Luck!


Mystery Photo 3-16

Welcome to a whole new world. Because of the uncertain of what is going on, we’re going to do our best here at the Krypt to give everyone out there a little distraction. Don’t know if this is the smartest thing to do, but it is all we can think of to try and hold on some sort of normality. I know one positive thing is that I’m getting to watch a LOT of movies recently, so I’m definitely taking advantage of it.

Okay, our photo from last week was from the Japanese film The Haunted Castle (1969). I caught this for the first time a few weeks ago and was amazed at the cinematography and all around style the film had. Highly recommended. Unfortunately, the only one to send in the correct answer was Hoby Abernathy. But hopefully this will cause a few others out there to seek out this great film.

This week’s photo is a little more current, so hopefully it will be a little easier. We’ll see! So take a look and then send your guess to us in an email, to Good Luck!


Mystery Photo 3-9

Welcome to another Monday! Our photo from last week was kind of a trick one. That definitely is a young Jack Taylor and it is from the Nostradamus series that was later cut up into 4 separate features. That shot particular was from Nostradamus y el destructor de monstruos aka The Monster Demolisher (1962). If you’re a fan of early Mexican horror films, that series is a lot of fun. Congrats to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Bob Hartman, and Troy Howarth.

Now on to this week’s photo. Might be pretty obvious what country this is from… or is it? There… that was to throw your game off a bit! Either way, take a look and see what you can come up with. Just send your answer to us in an email to Good Luck!


Mystery Photo 3-2

Welcome to March! This means that convention season is even closer! Okay… back to the subject at hand! Our last photo was from Dan Curtis’ film Burnt Offerings (1976), in an obvious tribute to composer Bob Cobert who had recently passed away. Burnt Offerings isn’t one of my favorites of Curtis, but is always entertaining, mainly from the wonderful cast in it. I mean, how can you go wrong with Bette Davis, Oliver Reed, Karen Black, and Burgess Meredith??? We had quite a few send in the correct answers this time, which always makes me happy! Glad to know people know these classic Curtis movies! So congrats to the following: Hoby Abernathy, Todd Barwick, Cate Cameron, Richard Garcia, Christopher Highland, Doug Lamoreux, Martin Meeks, William Wilson, and Greg Wojick. Well done, indeed!

On to this week’s photo. This one might be a little tougher, so take a good look and see what you can come up with. Maybe you’ll recognize the actor which might help you. Maybe. I don’t need to remind everyone not to post your answer in the comments because after only five years, I’ve realized I can make it so nobody can leave a comment on certain posts. I’m slow, but steady. Anyway… here’s this week’s photo.



Mystery Photo 2-24

A little late today, but still here. Rough Monday, but always could be worse, right? But let’s get to business and not waste any more time! Last week’s photo was that of Joe Spinell from 1980’s Maniac. For a movie filled with so much graphic and grisly violence, it still is an incredible film with a lot of deeper meaning in there. So far ahead of it’s time. Still a classic. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Aaron AuBuchon, Aaron Christensen, Richard Diaz, Kristin Wicks, William Wilson, and Greg Wojick. Well done.

So onto today’s photo. For some, it will be obvious and maybe even obvious to some as to why I picked this one. But give it a look and see what you think. As always, please remember not to post your answers here in the comments so that others can have a chance at guessing. Good Luck!
