Boo! hope you're all having a spooktacular week. Thought I would share with you one of my favourite Del Toro films.
Is probably one of my favourite vampire related films, it also got me obsessed with scarabs. Jesus Gris, a grandfather and antique dealer discovers an alchemist built mechanical scarab, which gives him a thirst he cannot quench with a simple glass of water. However Jesus can no longer function without the device and either can the dying eccentric De la Guardia, who summons his minion, Angel de La Guardia (Ron Perlman) to get the cronos no matter what. What is so special about the film is that it is not aimed at teenagers, and the relationship between Jesus and his granddaughter Aurora is particularly enchanting.

Six foot eight, long black hair, tattoos, tragically witty lyricist;
My gosh the fifteen year old me fell in love with this man, he looked like he belonged in the munsters, very talented with a sardonic black humour that just makes me love his music all the more.
Oh Yvonne De Carlo not only was she stunning in the forties but also in the sixties, always a constant inspiration.
Yeah I need to quench my thirst for a scarab necklace real bad, this beauty is from Etsy.
Oh and here is a perfect Halloween related song;
