After another scandal with his mother, the guy decides to seek help from the otherworldly forces. The song used in the film is "Sugar's Delight" by Ray Barretto.

Trivia

Del Toro was not satisfied with the original cut of the film, and said that he was not able to finish it the way he wanted to at the time. A director's cut of the film, slightly shorter than the 1987 cut, with a new music score composed by Christopher Drake was included on The Criterion Collection's 2010 release of del Toro's 1993 feature film debut, Cronos.

Geometric progression...
27 October 2014 | by poe426See all my reviews

Just a couple of days ago, I happened to see the most recent DVD version of Guillermo Del Toro's CRONOS. Included in the supplements was a short he'd made, GEOMETRIA. I agree with the previous commenter on this page: I've never been very good at math- let alone geometry-, so the plight of the kid in the movie was one I could relate to. His solution to his problem was... inspired, to say the least. The bubblegum-popping demon was hilarious. In an interview also included in the supplements, Del Toro mentions the influence of filmmakers like Mario Bava and Dario Argento; the color palette of GEOMETRIA (not to mention everything he's done professionally) certainly bears this out. If you're a fan of Del Toro's, or a fan of well-made horror shorts, check out GEOMETRIA.
