There was a time when "Mexican horror movie" was synonymous with lame script, bad acting, and atrocious production values. The work of Spanish/Mexican director del Toro has made that a thing of the distant past.
Cronos is an entirely original reimagining of the vampire mythos. In reality, this film is more about love than it is about blood sucking or any kind of horror. In a sense it might be seen as an entirely different (and non-erotic) twist on the finale of the silent Nosferatu.
Ron Perlman gives, as usual, a brilliant performance. Federico Lippi is equally brilliant as the grandfather who can be young again at the cost of his soul and little Tamara Shanath is outstanding as his granddaughter. Anyone who enjoys intelligent horror should not pass up this classic.
