Cronos (1994)

Mildly diverting Mexican horror film about an antique dealer who
stumbles upon the Cronos Device-- a 400 year-old device capable of
bestowing immortality, among other nasty things.  Said dealer is
subsequently pursued by the nefarious nephew (Ron Perlman) of a
terminally ill industrialist.

This very stylish film from director Guillermo del Toro won both the
Critic's Week Grand Prize at Cannes and the Mexican Academy Award for
Best Picture.  The occasional nods to David Cronenberg are fun, but the
story is both too slow and too simple to keep your butt from joining the
legions of the dead.

Grade: B
