Cronos is an enchanting and beautiful film to watch, but it left me constantly longing to be allowed to submerge myself deeper into the magical world that its characters stumbled into. As a result i was left never feeling quite satisfied.
I didn't receive a single fright, but that was ok, because its dark comedy and odd quirks took center stage instead.
A lovely storyline and beaut... read more

An enjoyable film from Guillermo del Toro
that, while billed as a horror film, is really not that horrific at all. It is more of a black comedy in fact.

An antiques dealer stumbles upon a much coveted item that can grant its user eternal life - at a cost! In return, apart from looking a little worse for wear, the user will acquire an uncontrollable thirst for blood. I enjoyed... read more

Disappointing- & Unworthy of Criterion

"Cronos" is a film that starts out promising, then kills itself dead much to the horror of the viewer. Director Guillermo Del Toro is one of today's most impressive filmmakers, but even he couldn't resuscitate this dud after a certain point.

Initially, we are given an interesting premise- pleasant, aging antiques dealer Jesus (Frederico Luppi, who would later go on to play in Del... read more

In 1535, an alchemist builds an extraordinary mechanism encapsulated into a small golden device. The invention, designed to convey eternal life to its owner, survives its maker until 1997, when it shows up with an antiques dealer. Fascinated with the strange device, Gris doesn't note that there's more than one person looking for it. The promise of eternal life has become an obsession for old and sick Mr. De la Guardia. He and his nephew will do anything to get the Chronos Invention.

Horror Films Rated Too Low at IMDb (19 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 90% I didn't think I was going to like it that much, considering the lower rating. It was oddly fascinating and had some real good music to it. If you really liked Pan's Labyrinth, it's worth checking out."

30 From 93: My Favorite Films From 1993 (30 movies items)

" What is the secret if eternal life? Why, human blood, of course. So if you wanna live forever, try becoming a gosh-to-honest vampire. But, as we all know by now (from watching movies like this one), there comes quite a high price to pay for becoming an eternal bloodsucker. A price that kinda gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "get busy living or get busy dying". "
