Film Rave #33: The Cronos Backbone

Welcome to the fourth edition of five of the 2013 Film Rave Halloween Special! It’s another doozy, as well as another director double feature, with Guillermo Del Toro getting the focus. His two films being covered are “Cronos”, a unique fable about immortality, and “The Devil’s Backbone”, a ghost tale centered around the horrors of war. Speaking of war, it’s twins vs twins in this week’s Dungeon of Horrors induction, “Double, Double Toil & Trouble”. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen do battle with a witch played by Cloris Leachman (who also has a twin). Eric McCormack (Will from “Will & Grace”) is their father. These are the only interesting factoids.

I also go over recent viewings (another hour long segment), including “Toy Story of Terror”, “Wake Wood”, “Frenzy”, “Hack O Lantern”, “Escape from Tomorrow”, “The Bates Haunting”, “Under the Bed”, “The Ninth Configuration”, “Road Games”, “Tales from the Darkside: The Movie”, “The Conjuring”, “The Angry Red Planet”, “Big Ass Spider!” & “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa”. I also give a shout out to Pat the NES Punk and his NES Marathon.
