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.

Hope springs for "Eternal," more an erotic character study than an unsightly bloodbath.

Eternal is a red-ripe, overwrought fetish feast that's sure to entertain fans of the lush, romantisized vampire genre.

It's the multidimensional characterization and dialogue that elevates this film far far above being just a vampire movie with a more literate back-story.

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.

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.
