Guillermo del Toro made an auspicious and audacious feature debut with Cronos, a highly unorthodox tale about the seductiveness of the idea of immortality. Kindly antiques dealer Jesús Gris happens upon an ancient golden device in the shape of a scarab, and soon finds himself the possessor and  victim of its sinister, addictive powers, as well as the target of a mysterious American named Angel. Featuring marvelous special makeup effects and the haunting imagery for which del Toro has become world-renowned, Cronos is a dark, visually rich, and emotionally captivating fantasy.
