It is hard to believe that 25 years before Guillermo del Toro won Best Picture and Best Director for The Shape of Water at the 2018 Oscars, he was forced to sell everything and take out a mortgage to fund his first feature film. In Cronos, an antiques dealer discovers a gold scarab-shaped device. It contains a terrifying secret, placed there by an alchemist six centuries earlier: the key to eternal life.
