News & Interviews for Cronos
Critic Reviews for Cronos
Guillermo del Toro's feature debut is an arch twist on the vampire tale.
Cronos surprises with its sophisticated and spirited look at a tale straight from the crypt.
While the film's first half entices with its secrets, the second half falls into a predictable narrative that refuses to even suggest possibilities.
Guillermo del Toro says, "Cronos is an exploded view of my brain."
This is a wonderfully baroque, gleeful subversion of the days of Hammer. A unique, terrifying mini-masterpiece.
