Also out on DVD this week is the Criterion edition of Cronos, the Mexican horror film of 1993 directed by the young Guillermo del Toro, from whom Your Humble Narrator, with characteristic brilliant prescience, predicted great things at the time.


Monster-of-the-Week: …this week we give the nod to Jesus Gris, the hapless antiques dealer played by Federico Luppi, who gets stung by a metal scarab in his shop & becomes a particularly pitiable sort of vampire.

Here’s me on Cronos, from 1994.
