If that dramatic introduction doesn't entice you to read on, then I'm plumb out of reasons for you to continue. This entry is the first in what I hope to make a regular series. Since today is named after the Norse God of Thunder, and the God of Thunder has a hammer, I thought, what better day to throw emphasis on films from my favorite horror studio? I have to dedicate this opening salvo to British artist and fellow Hammer aficionado Simon Williams, who told me he'd never seen the film in question. Well, get ready, Simon: here's Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter!
|The titles. Director Brian Clemens still has the ring fashioned after the logo!|
|Kronos: Man of action!|
|Professor Hieronymus Grost philosophizes about the vampire.|
|Oh, Kronos will have her, all right. Caroline Munro in all her glory.|
|The Durwards, with dear old dad in the painting behind them.|
|John Carson's Dr. Marcus, shortly after he finds out the ugly truth.|
|Who's this? You'll have to watch the movie to find out...|
Ah, perchance to dream...
I'd love your thoughts on this new feature! Your suggestions for future Hammer Films to be spotlighted would also be horrendously (ahem) appreciated. delusionalhonesty [at] gmail[dot] com.
Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter is available on Region 1 DVD from Paramount/CBS, and will soon be available again on Region 2 DVD from Icon Home Entertainment (September 12).
