  • Vampires and villains hold sway in this Cannes Festival Critics' Week Winner which tells the tale of the "Cronos Device," a 14th-century golden scarab that holds the key to eternal life. Nightmarish and surreal, this stylish film still manages to get across a healthy dose of humor as its characters battle for control of the insidious device. From the acclaimed director of THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE (2001) and MIMIC (1997) Guillermo del Toro.
  • Credits
    Claudio Brook, Claude Brook, Federico Luppi, Ron Perlman, Tamara Shanath, Margarita Isabel
  • Critic Reviews
    "...A very stylish and sophisticated Mexican variation on some age-old themes....[Its] stately style elevates it from the ranks..."
    New York Times

    "...Pleasant and spooky....Luppi gives a poignant and amusing performance....Del Toro not only has fun mixing genres, he knows how to convey his enjoyment and make the result distinctly his own..."
    Los Angeles Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "It's shadowy and tender, but shot through with biting wit."

    "Guillermo del Toro struck a fresh slant on the vampire genre with this stately blend of magic realism, melodrama and Cronenbergian body horror."
