There's no camp in this vamp; the lady, and the film, is a tramp.

That the acting is stilted and that the filmmakers and especially Pla take themselves so seriously serves to make Eternal deliriously silly camp fare.

Conrad Pla turns in a performance of such staggering ineptitude that it almost (key word: almost) reaches a so-bad-it's-good, Plan 9 From Outer Space brilliance.

I wouldn't recommend this for theatrical viewing, but as late night cable fare, it's an acceptable way for an insomniac to pass two hours.

Perfect for watching on video on a cool Cape Cod night, but maybe not so arousing in an arthouse for 10 bucks and change.

Quite silly and not especially scary.

You watch this brain-dead film in a similar state yourself, until its culmination at--where else?--the cheesiest of masked balls.

But for all its exposed skin, the film's pulse is hard to find.

Neron and Pla look like porn stars and have about the same level of acting ability.

...this whole production might as well just be a music video featuring everything Elizabeth from lusting for blood to bathing in it and the process involved.

ETERNAL is a sexy and stylish horror thriller from Canada that unfortunately seems to be re-treading all-too-familiar territory. It gets points for its lavish production design, but very little for originality or real horror.

September 10, 2005 Full Review Source:

Eternal is only occasionally completely stupid...but it's never very bright either.

September 8, 2005

This oddball mixture of bloodsucking horror and soft-core porn is both objectively terrible and perversely fascinating.

A desperate cop is in over his head under the spell of a reincarnated lesbian vampire with great hair.

Monsters and Critics

Just by being true to the legend, as if Erszebet had truly lived, Eternal is an interesting work, an erotic thriller with a supernatural bent.

August 30, 2005 Full Review Source: Cinerina

Eternal is the kind of horror movie where the only horror is a misplaced vase.

A terrible script, pedestrian direction, and acting that's mediocre at best signify that Eternal...[is] ready-made, moderately sexy fodder for late-night Skin-emax.

Groucho Reviews

Half real, half fantasy... not much of Eternal makes any sense at all, and Pope's police work is some of the shoddiest on screen, ever

August 26, 2005 Full Review Source:

While Eternal starts off strong, with an intense supernatural and hyper-sexual undercurrent that's sort of interesting, by the start of the third act, Eternal slips into something near camp.

Audience Reviews for Eternal

This movie must be Canadian because it keeps reappearing on TV. It is a combo vampire, renegade cop, soft porn and horror film.
