Vampires and villains hold sway in this Cannes Festival Critics' Week Winner which tells the tale of the "Cronos Device," a 14th-century golden scarab that holds the key to eternal life. Nightmarish and surreal, this stylish film still manages to get across a healthy dose of humor as its characters battle for control of the insidious device. From the acclaimed director of THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE (2001) and MIMIC (1997) Guillermo del Toro.
