Film of the Week

Only a short announcement today – I know I haven’t been doing many blogs recently because I’ve been working on my writing. I should pick up again soon but thing might slow down from time to time.

Anyway every week I will do a post about what has been my film of the week. Weather it was a DVD, Short Film or in the cinema I will write a small piece on a recent film I watched. And to start I’ll do last weeks.

Film of the week:

CRONOS (1993)

Feature debut from director Guillermo Del Toro and stars Mexican favourite Federico Luppi as an elderly antique seller who comes across an ancient relic called the Cronos Device. The device grants it’s user the ability to grow old however comes at a price. The owner/user must drink the blood of the living to keep the device alive. Cronos is a beautiful vampire story about a man and his grand daughter against an evil organisation whilst also battling with growing old.

“One of the finest chillers of the decade. A masterpiece"
