Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Cavett Binion
The simple, straightforward plot of director Guillermo Del Toro's Cronos is given resonance by a rich, intriguing mythology which emphasizes the grotesque, parasitic aspects of vampirism, stripping away the romantic aspects of the myth to define the vampire as essentially a highly-evolved form of parasitic insect, which the Cronos device itself clearly resembles. Del Toro too often resorts to rather heavy-handed allegory -- the saintly Jesus Gris dies, descends into a "hell" of indignity and base desires (exemplified by a nasty scene where he resorts to lapping blood from a bathroom floor) and rises again to protect his granddaughter from evil -- this wild fantasy is still anchored at a very sensitive, human level, thanks to excellent performances and a low-key, non-exploitative approach.

    An interesting, dark fairy tale which sets the stage for the rest of Guillermo del Toro's career. The movie is definitely worth checking out for del Toro fans, but what elevates it to a 5 Star rating are the outstanding bonus features. Guillermo del Toro, as always, provides candid, informative, and above all else, entertaining interviews and commentaries that give insight into his ideas, what he loves about the finished film, and what he feels he'd have done differently if he were to do it all over.

    Highly recommended!

    Excellent to watch at midnight and be freaked out, then go to bed and contemplate your own fate. One of a few movies that makes your imagination catch fire. Don't believe the fools who are Anonymous and living in fear.
