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.
| Original Score: 1/4

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
| Original Score: 1/4

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
| Original Score: 3/5

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.
