A 16th century alchemist builds a device called the Cronos that enables its user to live forever - although it also gives them an inconvenient lust for blood. When the device resurfaces, it is accidentally picked up by an antiquarian - unaware that a dying millionaire will do anything to get his hands on it.
This is a wonderfully baroque, gleeful subversion of the days of Hammer. A unique, terrifying mini-masterpiece.
