A trio of films by the acclaimed Mexican director Guillermo del Toro.

Cronos (1993): A strange object, the "Cronos device," has been found inside the statue of an angel in an antique store. While the dealer, Jesus Gris, is holding the device, it springs open and its metallic legs pierces his flesh. Once "bitten," he develops a craving for human blood, and his body grows more and more youthful with each drink. As the addiction spreads through his body, he realizes he desires the blood of his innocent granddaughter...

The Devil's Backbone (2001): A deliciously dark horror, The Devil's Backbone tells the tale of a remote Spanish orphanage during the final days of The Spanish Civil War whose young inhabitants are brutally terrorised by Santi, a decomposing spirit who stalks the building's dark decaying hallways. But, as the film builds to a grisly, explosive finale, the children learn the true story of Santi's death and rise up to vow a deadly vengeance on his vicious murderer. Produced by Pedro Almodovar and brilliantly photographed for maximum suspence by leading cinematographer Guillermo Navarra, The Devil's Backbone is a truly haunting, memorable ghost story.

Pan's Labyrinth (2006): the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944 - after Franco's victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.

Pan's Labyrinth was a terrific film with great direction, stunning cinematography and a great soundtrack. Del Toro's films are infamous for having great character development. Devil's Backbone is the brother film of Pan's Labyrinth and as such is excellent also and now being anamorphicly enhanced for widescreen TV's, Devil's Backbone looks very good. I haven't yet sat through Chrono's but I would recommend this boxset for Pan and Devil- they are both awesome films......

 3 great films

Toro is by far my favoruite spanish director and these 3 films prove why, each one is thrilling in it's own way
Pan for starters is a brilliant film with all the magic and mystery
then devil's backbone which is also very good at depicting spanish life during the civil war
and finally Cronos, which i confess i hadn't seen before i bought the box set but i loved it. Quite strange but still very good

Bargain price for 3 top notch films, can't recommend more!
