A strange object, the "Cronos device," has been found inside the statue of an angel in an antique store. While the dealer, Jesus Gris, is holding the device, it springs open and its metallic legs pierces his flesh. Once "bitten," he develops a craving for human blood, and his body grows more and more youthful with each drink. As the addiction spreads through his body, he realizes he desires the blood of his innocent granddaughter...
This film is really good. If you liked Pan's Labyrinth you'll love this. This was the first Guillermo Del Toro film I ever saw, and it is brilliant and has turned me onto his films in a big way.
Don't forget Quidco.
I've been waiting to get Devil's backbone cheap, so ordered that the other day. Hoping it's as good as Cronos and Pan's Labyrinth!
