Another week, another MYSTERY PHOTO!

Jon Kitley, pillar of the Chicago Horror Community and head honcho over at KITLEY’S KRYPT, wants to challenge your horror knowledge. Week in, week out, he posts a Mystery Photo – sometimes from an obscure horror title, sometimes just an unusual shot from a well-known classic. We figured our faithful Claw readers would enjoy the challenge!

Our last photo was from the wacked-out goofy heavy metal horrorshow BLACK ROSES (1988), director John Fasano’s follow-up to the wacked-out goofy heavy metal horrorshow that was 1987’s Rock ‘n’ Rock Nightmare. The basic story features famous glam rock band The Black Roses being booked to play their first ever live show at its hometown local high school. But when the lead singer Damien (Sal Viviano) and Co. crank out the hard rock, the kids in town become increasingly zombie-like and violent. Not really a good film by any stretch, but if you’re a fan of puppet monster action and cameos from folks like Creature from the Black Lagoon’s Julie (Julia) Adams or Lou Ferrigno’s wife Carla, then by all means, drop that needle and freak out!
