Synopsis: 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.

"...A very stylish and sophisticated Mexican variation on some age-old themes....[Its] stately style elevates it from the ranks..."

Review: -03/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's shadowy and tender, but shot through with biting wit."
Review: -04/01/2006
"Guillermo del Toro struck a fresh slant on the vampire genre with this stately blend of magic realism, melodrama and Cronenbergian body horror."
Review: -12/08/2010
"[T]his is more gothic romance than horror, as del Toro's commitment to the wondrously grotesque transforms stock elements into something richer and more profound." -- Grade: A-
