Mystery Photo 11-12

I have to say that I’m rather disappointed in a few of you out there for not getting last week’s photo. You should be ashamed. It was from Paul Naschy’s Curse of the Devil (1973). But our good friend Hoby Abernathy did recognize it, after searching for a bit, but he still got it. So congrats out to him!

Maybe today’s photo will be a little easier. Maybe. Take a peek and see what comes to mind. Gotta love those old black and white films. At least I do!

Mystery Photo 11-5

A little late today, but still Monday from where I’m sitting. Last week’s photo was from the wonderful world of Al Adamson and his movie Brain of Blood (1971). In that photo was the esteemed actors Kent Taylor and Grant Williams with the lovely Regina Carrol in between them. On the table was the imitable John Bloom, a 7’4″ actor who always made an impact on screen. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Dustin Moravich, Michael Shields, and Mike Tutino. Well done.

This week’s photo doesn’t involve a brain, but a skull…of some sort. Let’s see what you can come up with. As always, please remember not to post your answers here so other can have a guess. Just send them to us in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Halloween is almost upon us. Hopefully everyone out there has been enjoying and indulging in the season! I know I have been trying to do my best! But let’s get to the business at hand. Last week’s photo was from El mundo de los vampiros (1961), better known here in the states as The World of Vampires. While this film may have some weird and crazy shit going on, the atmosphere is just amazing. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Doug Fronto, Angela Hermann, Troy Howarth, & Michael Shields.

Now for this week’s photo. Might be a tough one, or fairly easy for some of you. Take a look and find out. As always, PLEASE remember not to post your answers here so that others can have a chance at guessing. Just send your guess to us in an email to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

While I still am recovering from our weekend at the Monster Bash Conference in Mars, PA, I wasn’t going to forget to get a new photo posted today. Priorities, right? Before we get to the new one, let us go over last week’s photo. It was a shot from one of the most famous double features in cult movie history. Our pic was from the second and lesser known feature, was directed by Del Tenney and was originally titled Zombies or Zombies, or even Invasion of the Zombies, but wasn’t released right away. Distributor Jerry Gross picked it up, re-titled to I Eat Your Skin for his famous double feature run, following I Drink Your Blood. The rest is exploitation history.

Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy & Michael Shields. Well done, guys!

Now on to this week’s photo. Take a look at this guy’s organ! Seriously! Then see if you can recognize what film it is from. Please remember not to post your answers here, so that others can have a guess. Just send your guess to us in an email to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

I know it’s late on Monday, but I couldn’t go two weeks without a Mystery Photo. Just got back from Chicago from a screening of Frankenstein (1931) but knew I had to get this updated before I crash. So let’s get to it! Our last photo from two weeks ago was in tribute to the recent Cinema Wasteland convention, My Bloody Valentine (1981). I did find it interesting that a few people were sending in guesses with an Italian giallo, which really shows that the slasher film is the American cousin to them. Sure, a distant cousin, but definitely related. Kudos out to the following for sending in the correct answer: David Friedman, Angela Hermann, and William Wilson.

And now, this week’s photo! As always, please don’t post your answers here so others have a chance. Just send us your guess in an email, to jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 10-1

YEAH! It’s finally October! That means we only have 31 days to really enjoy the Halloween Season before the biggest commercial holiday hits us! So let us horror fans make sure we do whatever we can to enjoy each and every one of these 31 days! I’m not sure how many updates I’ll have throughout the month, mainly due to all the conventions, marathons, and other events we have planned, but I’ll do my best.

But let us start it off with a new Mystery Photo, shall we? Last week’s photo was from Screamers (1979). Now if you said Island of the Fishmen, I would accept that, though technically this particular shot is from the footage that was added to the American release to the film, to help calm down the crowds at the drive-in who were pissed because the American ad campaign stated that you’d actually get to see a man turned inside out, which wasn’t in the original version. Oh the sordid tales of PR in low budget filmmaking. But kudos to the following that sent in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Angela Hermann, Troy Howarth, Gavin Schmitt, Michael Shields, and William Wilson. Well done!

For our first October photo, we’re going to with something a little traditional. Take a peek and see what you think. As always, please remember not to post your answers here so others can have a chance. Send your guess to me at jon@kitleyskrypt.com. Good Luck!

Mystery Photo 9-24

A little late today, but still got it posted. Busy weekend at the Drive-in, so it kind of drained me on Sunday. Getting too old to be staying up so late!

Anyway, our photo from last week was of course from Dario Argento’s Tenebre (1982). Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Wendy Bodine, Troy Howarth, Bryan Martinez, Baron Martino, and William Wilson.

Now to this week’s photo, which again, might be a little tougher. Or not. Take a look and see what you can come up with. I will say there is a little trick here, but since it’s almost October, I figured I’d start early. Please remember not to post your answers here, so that others can have a chance. Just send me your guess in an email (jon@kitleyskrypt.com). Good Luck!
