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.

It's impossible to overstate the silliness of all this, but it would still be a decent Halloween trick -- if it were Halloween.

Lush, lurid and completely besotted with itself, Eternal is one of those movies normally found slinking around the ether of late-night cable television.

Real scares are few, in part because the major characters are unsympathetic.

Bram Stoker would be, well, horrified.

Tame and cheesy even by the modest standards of the genre, Eternal needs all the intellectual trappings it can find.
