In anticipation of Guillermo del Toro’s massive Pacific Rim hitting theaters July 12, the Trylon will take a look back at del Toro’s more subtle and creepy beginnings. His debut, Cronos, is a stylish take on the myth of the vampire. Variety called it “a unique, terrifying mini-masterpiece.” The tiny little life-giving blood-drawing mechanism in Cronos may be a far cry from the mecha v. monster madness of Pacific Rim, but there is no doubt that Cronos, made only ten years ago, served as incubation for del Toro’s one-of-a-kind flair.
Cronos plays Monday, July 1 and Tuesday, July 2, 7:00 and 8:45 both nights. Advanced tickets are available at the Trylon’s website.
