Description by Image Entertainment:
Kronos - Scientists at a "Top Secret" atomic research laboratory are taken over by strange fantastic control devices launched from an orbiting space ship inhabited by a hostile super-intelligence from beyond the stars. Simultaneously, a gigantic flying saucer crashes in the Gulf of Mexico and Kronos, a giant metallic monolith monster, emerges. Unstoppable, it slashes across the countryside, draining the earth of all its electrical energy and beaming it into space. Kronos, a weapon so perfect in design it absorbs a direct hit by a Hydrogen bomb and becomes that much more powerful! Atomic age excitement! Atomic age thrills! All in out-of-this-world "Regalscope" format for the first time on DVD. Spaceways - Space is a cold place to die! At a secret rocket base in England, Scientist Howard Duff (Brute Force, The Naked City) is accused of committing the perfect crime--murdering his adulterous wife and her Russian spy lover and disposing of their bodies by firing them into space aboard a satellite. To prove his innocence, he must go into space and retrieve the orbiter with fellow scientist, lovely Eva Bartok (The Crimson Pirate, Blood and Black Lace), who insists on accompanying him, possibly never to return! Historically the first British space adventure since "Things to Come" in 1936. Also of note, "Spaceways" in the first science fiction film produced by famed British film studio, Hammer Films. Early Atomic Age science fiction complete with murder, commies and the promise of exciting futuristic space exploration!
