Ratings & Reviews

  1. James Mackin's rating of the film Cronos

    A bit slow in the beginning, but hooked me in when he used it on his heart. The whole time, it made me want to see a serious biblical film that portrayed Jesus as a vampire.

  2. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Cronos

    A good debut from Guillermo Del Toro, a glimpse of the greatness that would come following.

  3. bryanvmh's rating of the film Cronos

  4. Cody Hoskins's rating of the film Cronos

    What darkly imaginative and macabre groundwork that Del Toro laid for his vision as a filmmaker! With a mixture of Brothers Grimm and Clive Barker, Cronos is a visually enticing treat in horror and fantasy that intrigues and disturbs with its ghoulish imagination.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Cronos

    Original, mais inabouti !

  6. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Cronos

    Feature film debut of Guillermo del Toro - a director that loves dark fables, weird monsters, heavy make-up effects, macabre twists and Ron Perlman. A director for my taste then. The golden scarab is a memorable movie prop. With even more dialogue and feelings between the grandfather and granddaughter the film would have been perfect.

  7. pluviosity's rating of the film Cronos

    the visual and the concoction of the idea behind the imagery were amazing. But too bad the plot, the dialogue, the story, were clunky as heck. It's like their energy ran out by the time they ask themselves how the story going to be made.

  8. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Cronos

    With his directorial debut Guillermo Del Toro creates a moving and ambitious film. Like Del Toro this film is hard to categorize or put into a box. At times it's a horror film. At other times it's a sweet coming of age tale. The real stand out here is Ron Perlman who turns in a delightfully over the top performance. This is a bizarre and beautiful film that every fan of Del Toro should watch.

  9. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Cronos

    Inventive but a little over-ripe. Del Toro would learn from Cronos to become a master film maker in the future.....

  10. Ethan's rating of the film Cronos

    This is an interesting spin on the vampire mythos and an extraordinary debut for Del Toro, even at the beginning of his career, he was already on top in a visual and a storytelling level.

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Cronos

    why is this film so underrated?

  12. HAD!L's rating of the film Cronos

    for an easy and fun night. And you get to see the original Mathilda.

  13. DenoResandono's rating of the film Cronos

  14. ionosonde's rating of the film Cronos

    wow, del toro's first film? pretty good! i mean, the acting and cinematography and whatever is all pretty standard but the imagery and ideas within the film are all really interesting. captivated me pretty much from the start.

  15. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Cronos

    The pacing seems a little off, but it isn’t too distracting. The style is cool, but it has a couple stupid moments, ones that are hard to compensate for. It’s fine. It’s no “Devil’s Backbone.”

  16. SiIencio's rating of the film Cronos

    Bleak, dark, macabre, obscure, plain, dull, uninspired. This is barely an original recreation of the vampire myth by drinking from many sources. Stylistically there is an abuse of dark and monochrome ambiance. Del Toro is still developing a trademark mood which will be used as a backdrop in future more mature films. Cronos feels like the first effort of a well-intended nerd who needs to leave his bedroom more often.

  17. Dogukan4Ever's rating of the film Cronos

  18. Sophia Park's rating of the film Cronos

    I was too squeamish for a lot of this. Vampirism through alchemy is fun, and honestly, this is too lovingly shot to be 'ordinary,' really — there's a lot of skillful work here already.

  19. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Cronos

    A couple of great images (blood on the bathroom floor...), but this really disappointed me. It just feels so ordinary.

  20. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Cronos

    It's a fine movie. Not great, but one can see why it was Del Toro's breakthrough film. It redeems itself most through its themes and production quality (on paper, the characters are almost too simple), but it's worthy of a three-star rating, overall.

  21. Siaudebert's rating of the film Cronos

    Not the greatest but a good fantastic movie

  22. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Cronos

    A charming and intelligent horror movie (4.4/5)

  23. Mubiey's rating of the film Cronos

    A debut feature from del Toro is interesting one but I think this movie failed to succeed its intention.

  24. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Cronos

    Del Toro would end up with tighter, better developed material, but this shows how much of his sensibility had already formed by his first feature film: a mixture of fairy tales, Spanish Surrealism, comic books, offbeat humor, and Universal Horror monster make-up. An inventive if somewhat wonky vampire movie, fleshed out thematically by a compare-and-contrast of what helps make peace with dying.
