Not sure where my head was last Monday but realized about mid-week that I had totally forgot to get a new Mystery Photo up! But have no fear, today we are back on track. But before we get to the new one, let’s do a review of our last one. It is from Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981), one that I feel is one of the best made-for-TV movies ever made! Great cast and a great story with plenty of creepy elements in there. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct photo: Peggie Christie, Chris Dyer, Troy Howarth, Mike Shields, and William Wilson. Well done!
Today’s photo is one that I love to look at because it just shows some of the beauty we can see in cinema, even in a horror film. Take a look below and see if you recognize where this is from. Just remember to send your guess to us in an email, to email@example.com. Good Luck!
Here’s our last photo for February. Already another month gone, which means convention season is just a month away (for us, at least). Last week’s photo was from the 1977 film The Pack, directed by Robert Clouse and starring Joe Don Baker. If you haven’t seen it, you might want to check it out. Would make a great double feature with Day of the Animals, or any number of those animals run amok films that were very prominent around that time. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Kevin Hart, Lee Nattrass, Michael Pniewski, and William Wilson. Well done.
Here’s our photo for this week. A little dark, but you might be able to make something there. If you can, send your answer to us in an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
Here I was trying to be tricky by posting a photo from Hellraiser (1987) but not of the cenobites, thinking I might fool everyone, but apparently that wasn’t the case. Yes, it is from the Barker film, of the wonderfully villainous Julia, right after doing some poor bloke in to help feed Frank. Kudos to the following that sent in the correct photo: Scott Bradley, Dada Debaser, Kevin Hart, Christopher Highland, Kristin Wicks, and William Wilson. Well done.
For this week, this one you might think is easy, but you just never know because there are a lot of films out there with these mean little characters in there. Put that grey matter to work and then send us your answer, in an email to email@example.com. Good Luck!
Greetings, and welcome to another installment of the Mystery Photo Mondays! Now since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, one would almost think I would use something from My Bloody Valentine, but I’m not that easy. But the I did choose is sort of a love story . . . kind of. Probably going to be pretty easy for the lot of you, so we’ll see how much you’re paying attention. But before we get to that, let’s cover last week’s photo. It was from Luigi Cozzi’s unofficial entry as the Third Mother film, The Black Cat (1989), starring the lovely Caroline Munro. Kudos to Dave Fronto and William Wilson for sending in the correct answer.
Okay, take a peek at the photo below and see what you come up with. Just remember to send your guess to me in an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
Welcome to the first photo of February. Another month in the books. For our last week’s photo, we decided to deep dive down into the world of really low budget films and picked a favorite shot from Bret McCormick’s Abomination from 1986. Can’t go wrong with a whole bunch of tumor monsters that are taking residence inside the kitchen cabinets! Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Bob Hartman, Mike Shields, & William Wilson. Well done!
This week’s photo is another fun one. Well . . . Anyway, take a look and see what you think. Just remember to send your guess to me in an email, to email@example.com. Good Luck!
Welcome to our last photo of the month. That’s right, we’ve almost made it through the first month of 2023 and we’re still here. Hopefully that is a good sign. Our photo from last week was from the one and only Grizzly (1976), one of the first and most successful “inspired” films that came from the blockbuster Jaws (1975). Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answers: Hoby Abernathy, Scott Bradley, Dada Debaser, Bryan Senn, and Michael Shields. Well done!
For this week’s photo, we’re going a little more obscure. Fans of the old VHS days might know this one. But give it a look and see what you can come up with. If you’ve seen it before, you’ll most likely remember it because it is quite different. Just remember to send your guess to me in an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
Last week’s photo was from the Oscar winning . . . okay, not exactly. But had director Ray Dennis Steckler had a real budget, you never know what he might have accomplished. The pic was from his 1964 film The Thrill Killers, which I must say, if you haven’t seen it, is actually a pretty decent film. Kudos to the following for sending in the correct answer: Scott Bradley, Michael Shields, and William Wilson. Well done!
Now since we’ve somehow managed to use black and white films for every pictorial puzzle this month, I figured it was about time we went color. So, take a look at this week’s photo and see if you can recognize where this one is from. Just remember to send your guess to me in an email to email@example.com. Good Luck!
You people surprised me with last week’s photo, and it made me proud! I thought if I posted a shot from the best tree monster movie ever (okay that might be debatable…), and didn’t include the actual monster, there’s no way anybody would get this. So, I posted a shot of a woman sinking to her death in a pit of quicksand from the 1957 film From Hell It Came. And much to my surprise, I was getting messages right away with the right answer. Shows what I know! Kudos out to the following for sending in the correct answer: Hoby Abernathy, Kevin Hart, Bob Hartman, Ken Johnson, Doug Lamoreux, Charles Miller, Lee Nattrass, Bryan Senn, and Alan Tromp. You guys make me proud to be amongst you!
Okay, let’s see if we can continue that trend with this week’s photo, shall we? Take a look below and see what you think. Just remember to email me your guess, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
As I mentioned last week, the photo was I posting was going to be pretty tough, and it seems I was correct. But that didn’t stop Hoby Abernathy and Bob Hartman from figuring out what movie it was from! No easy task, that is for sure, so a major kudos to them! The film is Mexican and from 1953, called El Monstruo Resucitado 1953 aka The Revived Monster. Very unique, especially for that time, and some wonderful creepy images. Check it out when you can.
For our photo this week, we’re still sticking in the black and white era. That’s right, the dreaded quicksand! As a young lad, watching a lot of TV in the early ’70s, there was few things as terrifying as a pit of quicksand. So much so that I thought it was one thing that was going to be difficult to avoid in my adult life. But so far, so good. Give the photo a peek and see if you can recognize it before this poor woman goes under. Remember to email me your guess, at email@example.com. Good Luck!
Welcome to the new year and our first Mystery Photo for 2023! Hopefully this is the start of a great year for us all. But let’s get down to business. Our photo from last week was from the 2015 film A Christmas Horror Story, which honestly isn’t really a bad film, especially when you look at the poster art! It is at least a good time. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any correct answers sent in for it, but I’m sure it was because everyone was too busy during the holidays . . .
For our first photo of the new year, I decided to go a little deep and obscure. This is going to be a tough one, so be prepared. But take a look below and see if you can recognize where this shot is from. Just remember to send your guess to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good Luck!
