This week Crestwood House switches from Werewolves to Vampires as Paxton leads us in a discussion where we dig up the 1974 Hammer Horror swashbuckling horror cult classic, Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter. Starring Horst Janson and Caroline Munro, this wild take on vampires was to be Hammer’s pathway to a new style of horror in the mid 70s before the studio fell to ashes in the blazing sunlight that was the modern slasher horror era.
Join us as we ride along with Captain Kronos talking all about his use of both samurai katana and french rapier swords, the radical cast, the sexy sexiness and burying dead frogs for science!
