Critic Consensus: Even by the standards of camp, Eternal fails to entertain.

Movie Info

When the wife of Raymond Pope, a Montreal vice cop with questionable morals, disappears, the trail leads him to the home Elizabeth Kane, a disturbingly beautiful woman who taunts him with information, but denies him any answers. A dangerous game of cat and mouse ensues as Pope's investigation reveals that while Elizabeth, along with her servant, Irina, have no documented history, they seem bizarrely connected to the past - particularly that of Erszebet Bathory, the Transylvanian countess who murdered 650 women in order to bathe in their blood. The closer Pope gets, the more sadistic Elizabeth becomes, systematically targeting those around him and framing him for their murders.

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.

Audience Reviews for Eternal


Apparently the bad reviews this film gets kept the writers/directors/producers from ever getting another credit to their names. This is actually too bad as I found the movie to be quite stylistic at times, containing one of the coolest scenes of all-time (the cover shot) as well as some highly-charged erotica. And, in the middle, it actually felt a bit like a horror. The trailer is lame.

An uber good movie about a true legend..Elizabet.. You must watch to completely understand. so chilling..Such an honor[if you get the surprise at the end] All I can say is OMG..WOW..

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