(1993) was Guillermo del Toro's feature debut, a highly unorthodox tale about the seductiveness of the idea of immortality. Kindly antiques dealer Jesus Gris (Federico Lupp) happens on an ancient golden device in the shape of a scarab, and soon finds himself the possessor and victim of its sinister, addictive powers. Cronos
is a dark, visually rich, and emotionally captivating fantasy.
