Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live forever? Sounds great, right? Well, if you go by the example set by grandfather-turned-vampire Jesus Gris, you may be in for more than you bargained. His mottled white skin and brittle post-resurrection appearance is a far cry from the young, sparkly vampires we’ve grown accustomed to over the past ten years. In Guillermo del Toro’s Cronos we tackle the messy subject of human existence and what price is too costly for renewed youth. And as a bonus, we also get to see a very merry Ron Perelman Christmas! Also, “pardon our dust” as we experiment and work towards finding some permanent music for the Correction in the upcoming weeks.
So peace, love, and for gosh sakes, keep track of your magical golden scarab!
