News and Notes
This is probably the best Mexican vampire movie made in the last decade. Not to mention the fact that it co-stars Ron Perlman. The story is about a mechanical gold bug concocted by a 14th century alchemist. The bug bites you and, boom, you're immortal. Del Toro directed 1997's Mimic and, like that movie, Cronos is visually stylish and populated with engaging characters.
