As the addiction spreads through his body, he realizes he desires the blood of his innocent granddaughter. In horror, he sacrifices himself, and destroys the Cronos, for love.

external linkPacked with stylish mood, lovely old fashioned looking production values and Luppi's tour-de-force performance; this is eccentric, off-beat and impressive stuff. ... There is nothing out there quite like this bizarre delight. 3.5/4

external linkThis is the sort of horror movie you show your friends who believe the beloved genre is nothing more than steel claws and chainsaws. 4.5/5

external linkGood story, but slow in parts. This spanish film is worth a rent if you're interested in a different vampire film, but don't expect a lot of action or neck-biting. 6/10
