Cronos

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

Disappointing- & Unworthy of Criterion

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 (20 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."
