This Spanish-language vampire film, set in Mexico, was the feature film debut for Mexican writer-director Guillermo del Toro, who would go on to work with Ron Perlman in the better-known Hellboy series. Before directing, del Toro worked as a special effects artist, so the eye for detail he gives to makeup, costume, hair and sets is not surprising. Cronos (Spanish for “time”) is about a device that allows a person to live forever, if they’re willing to make the necessary sacrifices. Del Toro’s first film raises key questions about time, family and identity.
