Description by OLDIES.com:

Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter introduces a brand new character to the famous Hammer Films gallery of horror entries. Kronos, played by Horst Janson, is a swashbuckling hero whose mission is to destroy evil wherever and whenever it is found. He fights with two swords - a rapier and a Samurai - is amoral and ever on guard to fight evil. His skills are tested in the 19th century when a rash of vampirism causes panic in a small village, with beautiful young girls falling under the curse of a ghoulish vampire.

Product Description:

Cult favorite Hammer Films offers another addition to its catalogue of horror classics with this swashbuckling tale of a 19th-century vampire hunter. Directed by Brian Clemens of 1960s Avengers fame, CAPTAIN KRONOS stars Germanic actor Horst Janson as the eponymous hero, a former military captain haunted by the loss of his wife and child to vampires and now determined to rid the world of this evil legion of terror. Together with his hunchbacked travelling companion and expert vampire authority Professor Grost (John Cater), Kronos roams the earth hunting down the undead and dispatching them with a slash of his samurai sword. When a pastoral village in the remote English countryside is suddenly plagued by a series of brutal murders--several beautiful young women are found with their faces horribly aged--Kronos and Grost are sent in to investigate. It isn't long before the intrepid duo confirm the work of a unique vampire who drains its victims not of their blood--but of their youth.
