The Eternal is just silly and not the least bit scary.

Audience Reviews for Trance (The Eternal: Kiss of the Mummy)

Funny premise, perfect for a bad movie night with friends. It's also the only instance I've found of a Christopher Walken movie that has a character do a Christopher Walken impersonation.

The Eternal (Michael Almereyda, 1998) [originally posted 22Feb2000] Also known as Trance. I picked this one up because I saw a preview for it and the premise looked interesting-- family goes to Ireland to dry out (oh, yeah, like THAT would work) and stay with the crazy uncle (Christopher Walken, the only A-list actor in the film). The crazy uncle has the well-preserved body of a two-thousand-year-old druidess in the basement, and hey! she just happens to look like the wife. (You can see where this is going, I'm sure.) We've seen it a hundred times. And it was done better a hundred times. Perhaps the longest ninety-five minutes I've spent in front of a television so far this year. Avoid like the plague. *

Notable for one reason only: That Christopher Walken is in it, as a blind man wearing octagonal-rimmed glasses
