Films: Cronos (1993)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of a Goliath Beetle.
Summary: Vampirism doesn't just come in the form of pasty monsters anymore. Now, the secret to eternal life and suffering can be found in the form of a very peculiar device. A horrible little gizmo better off send to the smelter.
History: Hundreds of years ago, a Spanish alchemist crafted a golden spider-like device known as Cronos. This thing, harboring a special type of insect within the metal chaste, was capable of granting whoever it attached to eternal life...at the cost of everything. Specifically, it injects a substance into your body that may restore you to your prime, but makes you a vampire.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Cronos' most recent host cannot take the bloody lifestyle anymore. He rips the machine off, and smashes it with a rock over and over again. It is unknown whether Cronos' destruction reversed the curse brought upon him.
Powers/Abilities: Grants eternal youth.
Weakness: Causes the users to be adverse to sunlight, anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-Cronos is an interesting concept. But while it has an imposingly intricate design, it is still a small thing no bigger than a wind-up toy. In other words, you could wreck this thing easily. Unless you are one so easily temped by youth...
Trivia: -This was the directorial debut of none other than the king of endearingly weird cinema, Guillermo del Toro.
-As well as his directorial debut, this film also served as the first time del Toro worked alongside his most frequent actor, Ron Pearlman.
