Synopsis:A mysterious device designed to provide its owner with eternal life resurfaces after four hundred years, leaving a trail of destruction in its path.
Guillermo del Toro‘s first feature length film Cronos is visually striking and takes a completely different spin on the classic vampire tale. Cronos follows the life/death of Jesus Gris (Federico Luppi) as he discovers the secret to immortality. I really love the device that turns Jesus into a vampire, it mixes an old machine that filters the owners’ blood through a bug. That alone sounds so weird but that just opens you up to the originality of this vampire film. Ron Perlman makes an appearance as the main man trying to get the device back.
