Mystery Photo 4-12

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope everyone had a stellar weekend. I know I did, mainly because I feel like I’ve done three Iron Man marathons back to back. Okay, I just moved my office from downstairs to upstairs, but carrying about 1300 books, 6 bookcases (most of them by myself) and countless trips up and down the stairs, I am feeling every bit of my age! But I’m finally moved in for the most part and am very happy with the new (and slightly bigger) Kryptic office! But you didn’t come here to hear me whine, did you? Let’s get to the official business at hand. Our photo from last week was from the early horror film The Vampire Bat (1933), another fun little picture with Lionel Atwill and Fay Wray. Sure, a little melodramatic, but still a lot of fun. Kudos out to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Gary McGuire, and Bryan Senn.

So this week’s photo is more of a tribute than anything, which some will understand right away, while others will understand at some point. So give it a look and see what you can come up with. Just send us an email with your guess, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck.

Mystery Photo 4-5

Welcome to April! I would say now that we’re a quarter way into 2021, I do feel things are looking up a little better. It honestly looks like we may actually have some conventions this year. At least, fingers are crossed. But let’s get to the real reason you’re looking at this post. The Mystery Photo! Last week’s photo was from the 1962 film Burn Witch Burn, or the original UK title, Night of the Eagle. While the original title does make sense in the film, I have to say I prefer the American one. We had quite a few correct guesses this time out, which makes me very happy that a lot have seen this one, since it really is a stellar film. Kudos to the following: Hoby Abernathy, Cate Cameron, Aaron Christensen, Craig Clark, Chris Dyer, Dave Fronto, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Troy Howarth, Gary McGuire, Charles Miller, Lee Nattrass,Jeff Owens, Tim Palace, and Todd Warren.

But let’s get on to this week’s photo. Going back in a time a bit for this early classic. Take a look and see if you recognize it. All you need to do is send us your guess at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Here we are at our last Mystery Photo for March. That means the year is a quarter way done. Yeah. Happy Monday, right? Okay, down to business. Our photo from last week got quite a few responses, which just thrills me because it is from an excellent and creepy as hell movie. The film is Session 9. Such an amazing sense of dread throughout that running time. Kudos to the following who sent in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Scott Bradley, Cate Cameron, Aaron Christensen, Peggie Christie, Brian Doering, Chris Dyer, Kevin Hart, Steve Hyder, Bryan Martinez, Gary McGuire, and Greg Wojick. Well done, people!

Now let’s get on to today’s pic, shall we? Just remember not to post your answers here so that everyone can have a guess. Just send us an email to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 3-22

Another Monday of 2021 that we’ve survived to. I’d say that is something worth celebrating. But for some folks out there, they are struggling with losing someone. Or are struggling to get through the day. I know it’s not easy, but remember that before going on on someone for something that really is pretty petty. Didn’t think you’d be getting some life advice coming to the Krypt, huh? Well, I’ll try not to make it a regular thing, but I just know that we can do better than what we’ve been doing, myself included.

But let’s get to why you’re here … our Mystery Photo. Unfortunately, nobody sent in the correct answer for last week’s photo. It was from Midnight Movie (2008), a fun little movie killer comes out from the screen. As far as this week’s, I think it might be a little easier, and definitely not as obscure. Or is it? Take a peek and send your answers to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Remember not to post your answers here in the comments so that others can have a chance at guessing. Good Luck!

Yes, very late today, but it is still Monday, so it still counts as a Mystery Photo Monday, right? But before we get to this week’s photo, let us not forget last our shot from last week, with the gooey bloody puddle inches away. Unfortuantely, it was not from one of the Blob movies but that was a great guess. But the shot is from Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond (1981). Ironically that that movie is not only the mystery photo, but also one of the reasons there hasn’t been too many updates lately! For know, let’s give credit where it is due, to all the ones that sent in the correct answer. They are: Hoby Abernathy, Aaron AuBuchon, Aaron Christensen, Kevin Hart, Rick Hayden, Troy Howarth, Ken Johnson, Gary McGuire, Charles Miller, Dustin Moravick, and Greg Wojick. Well done.

Now on to this week’s photo, which just might be a little tougher. Take a peek and lets us see! Just remember, if you know, or think you know, don’t post the answers in the comments so that others can have a chance. Instead, send us an email at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Welcome to another Monday. Right. Okay, now that is over, let’s get to the business at hand! Last week’s photo was a tough one, I’ll give you that. Which amazed even more that we got more than a couple of correct answers. You guys keep making me proud! The shot was from a French TV movie called The Golem (1967). Whether or not it is a horror film could be debated, as well as just what the hell the movie is about! But we’ll leave that for another time. Right now, let’s give praise to those that did recognize it: Hoby Abernathy, Aaron Christensen, Kevin Hart, Alan Tromp, and Nick Wilson. Well done!

Now this week’s photo might seen pretty easy, or maybe it is one that is going to make you think a bit. Either way, it definitely isn’t that obscure, so let’s see what you think. Remember, please do not post your answers here so that others can have a chance. Just send your guess to us in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

While I may not be having a lot of updates lately (for a variety of reasons), I can’t let a Monday go by without a new Mystery Photo, can I? Otherwise, who knows what kind of chaos the world could come to! So let’s get on it, shall we? It seems our little glamour shot last week seemed to have stumped everyone. That little lovely was in the film Books of Blood (2009). Maybe next time.

For this week’s photo, we went a little older and lot more obscure. So take a peek and see what your brain can come up with. Remember, please don’t post your answer in the comments so that others can have a go. Just send them to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Hopefully everyone is surviving all the snow that has been dumped on a lot of us recently along with the cold temps. Here in the Midwest, while we are use to it, that cold brisk wind can wake you up real quick in the morning. But you didn’t come here to hear about the weather, did you? So let’s get to the business at hand. Last week’s photo was from the Brazilian film The Nightshifter (2018), about a morgue attendant who somehow can talk to the dead. If you haven’t seen this one, I highly recommend it. Kudos goes out to Gary McGuire for being the only one to recognize this shot. Well done, Gary.

So on to this week’s photo. It’s a bit gory, so pay heed. Take a peek and see what you can come up with. Remember, as always, don’t post your answers here so that everyone has a chance at guessing. Just send your answer to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Sorry for the lack of updates as of late. Things in the real world have been keeping from getting done what I’d like to. As well as battling some severe bouts of simple lack of motivation. I know the stress of my real job is what I think is the major cause, but hopefully that will start to get back to normal. Fingers crossed. But for now, let’s get to our task at hand.

We didn’t have anybody send in a correct answer for last week’s Mystery Photo. It was from the 2007 chilling ghost story (in more ways than one) called Wind Chill. I’m always a sucker for a good ghost story and I think this one works well.

We’ll see how everyone does on this week’s photo. Hopefully we don’t have another week with no correct answers. Time will tell. In the mean time, take a look below and see what you can come up with. Remember not to post your answers here so that others can have a guess. Just send your guess to us at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Where did the weekend go? Not sure, since I’ve worked both days this weekend. Yeah…. fun, fun, fun! But that’s the fun part of this roller coaster we’re on, that the ride keeps moving no matter what. So you just need to hold on tight and enjoy it, right? That’s what I keep telling myself.

Anyway, our photo from last week was a bit of a toughie, and we only got one correct answer sent in, and that was from Greg Wojick, who correctly identified the photo from Satan’s Slave, an Indonesian horror film from 1982. Well done, Greg!

But let’s get to today’s photo. Might be a little easier, but we’ll see. Take a look and see if you can identify what film this shot is from. Please remember not to post your answers here so that everyone has a chance to make a guess. Just sent your guess to use in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!
