    This movie had a lot of good things going for it. First it had a great cast. Federico Luppi was a great character for the film and he really did an excellent job as main. Also I find it kind of ironic that his name is Jesus. Tamara Shanath, who played the little girl, had such a strange character, but she really pulled it off. The others were good too, but I will only mention Ron Perlman because he brought some nice comedy to the film as well. The story was pretty fantastic. It was like they combined being a vampire with being a zombie; but they put their own little twist on it. The twist made the story good from start to finish. The movie wasn't as scary as it was interesting. It may not make you jump in your seat, but it still gives off the horror vibe. Take it all in and it will seem creepy to you. Guillermo del Toro wins awards for reasons and this is just one of the films to show it. Collapse

    Cronos is a thoughtful, intelligent film, and as a horror movie (which is, I think, its main mission in life) it's genuinely disquieting.
  2. [It] may not be your cup of tea, but you have to admire the style, sincerity, and overall sense of craft even if you don't fancy the comic-book gore.

    For all its absurdity Cronos generates a real moral conviction.
