Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter, as played by Horst Janson, is a prototype blond Germanic, superstud caped like an operetta leading man. Accompanied by faithful friend John Cater, playing a hunchback professor, Kronos solves a vampire mystery with a lot of swash and buckle.

Story is unusual in that the vampire, who turns out to be an elderly woman (her ladyship in the castle, halfway up the next hill), sucks blood to get a youthful appearance. Being a new horror character, Kronos naturally has a groupie in tow (Caroline Munro) who caters to his earthier needs between random jousts with bad guys and bad vampires.

Ian Hendry has one scene as a heavy, got up like an aging leather gang leader solely for the purpose of Kronos showing off his swordsmanship.
