Cronos (1992)

Type :   Production countries :  


The prologue states that in the year 1535, an alchemist in Vera Cruz developed a mechanism that could give eternal life. In 1937 an old building collapsed, killing the alchemist who had marble white skin. Investigators never revealed what else was discovered in the building, but viewers are shown basins filled with blood from a corpse.

In the present, an old antique dealer, Jesús Gris, notices that the base of an arcangel statue is hollow. He opens it and finds a 450-year-old mechanical device in the base. After winding the ornate, golden, scarab-shaped device, it suddenly unfurls spider-like legs that grip him tightly, and it inserts a needle into his skin which injects him with an unidentified solution.

The viewer later sees that a living insect is entombed within the device and is meshed with the internal clockwork. This insect produces the solution. However, Gris is unaware of this detail until later.
