Editorial Reviews

Detective Raymond Pope is a detective of questionable morals, searching for his missing wife. His investigation leads him to the wealthy estate of the enigmatic Elizabeth Kane and her young maid Irina. Under Elizabeth's fascinating looks and aristocratic manners hides a terrifying secret, shared byher companion Irina. Irina believes that her mistress is a supernatural being, perhaps the real-life 16th Century Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory, who bathed in the blood of over 650 women in a misguided quest for eternal life. As Detective Pope finds himself perversely drawn to the powerful Elizabeth, bodies begin to surface, his inquiries only deepening the mystery surrounding Elizabeth's past. Pope's obsession grows so intense that he completely fails to anticipate Elizabeth's reaction to his intrusion into her dark world, a fatal mistake that might cost him his life and the lives of those close to him.

Format: DVD
After the largely negative press this film garnered from both critics and fans alike, I was expecting very little from it save for a routine dip into second-rate arthouse horrotica. Indeed, I only rented it from the local video store since the film was largely shot in Montreal and Venice, two of my favourite cities. It would seem a pointless exercise at best to even attempt to film yet another take on the Bathory 'Blood Countess' legend since it has already been done to death, and more often than not, quite poorly in the past--the notable exception being 'Daughters of Darkness', the stylish early 70s film starring the inimitable Dephine Seyrig. But co-directors/writers Wilhelm Liebenberg and Federico Sanchez have not only concocted a thoroughly thought-provoking and visually appealing film, but a welcome addition to the 'female vampire' sub-genre that should now be considered at the top of the list. Let it be said that the film does suffer from some inconsistencies among the performances and in the plotline--the latter it would appear resulting from the writers painting themselves into corners here and there. But these minor complaints aside, 'Eternal' is a juicy, noirish horror film that attempts to and succeeds to expand the dimensions of its well-worn themes. Special mention must be given to actress Caroline Neron who plays the lead role of Elizabeth Kane. Her deeply sensual and intelligent portrayal allows her to create a character unique enough to stand, if not alongside, at least nearby Seyrig's Elizabeth in the previously mentioned film and Catherine Deneuve's Miriam of the magnificent 'The Hunger'. I hasten to add that there is a laudable effort with the script to never definitively explain away the femme fatale here as being a vampire in the strict sense of the term.Read more ›

It's a Montreal homicide detective vs. a 300+ year old beautiful Hungarian "vampire vixen" in this pseudo horror-flick about legendary countess Elizabeth Bathory being under investigation for the disappearance of beautiful young women in Canada. It all starts after one of her pretty victims happens to be the aforementioned detective's ex-wife, and his subsequent suspicion over her involvement leads to an ongoing and relentless search into her activities that winds up at her home in Venice, Italy.

The police drama aspects were OK, but where this film really shines is during those brief moments involving her encounters with the pretty young women she pursues and then eventually drains of their blood. The lesbian aspects are highly charged and incredibly erotic, particularly those at her "party" in Venice! The imagination and erotic creativity are wonderful, but way too short in my opinion! If they were longer I'd give this one five stars for sure!

WARNING: some possible spoilers ahead...

This is a pretty good pseudo-vampire thriller along the lines of the Hunger. It takes historical fact, sex parties and obsession with the taboo and blends them all into fairly decent thriller. The basic storyline is about a cop who's wife goes missing. As he attempts to find out what happened to her, he gets drawn deeper and deeper into the fetishistic world of a dangerous woman who turns out to be Elizabeth Bathory, the famed countess who bathed in human blood to keep her youth. Eternal combines elements of the Hunger, Eyes Wide Shut and Basic Instinct into one movie. Strangely enough, the combination is not entirely unpalatable.

Acting is fairly solid throughout and the movie has some strong cinematography. The director makes some interesting choices and I think the only thing that I hold against him is the fact that he seems to have the same girl-on-girl fixation that so many other guys have. As a result, I had to watch a few more lesbian sex scenes than I would have liked, but they weren't too graphic and most of them ended quickly. I don't know if I would classify this as a horror movie, but if you're looking for a sexy thriller with a little bit of a bite to it, you might enjoy ETERNAL.

"Eternal" totters on being a decent film, but injecting the over-used "gritty, world-weary detective" motif into what would have been an intriguing pseudo-vampiress flick causes the film to repeatedly trip over its own incongruity. Mixing dark, lavish gothic sets and persistently-brooding supporting characters with a bald-headed, unshaven, foul-mouthed, squinting gnome threatening to get a warrant every five minutes keeps tugging the audience out of the horror fantasy and into a bad episode of [insert generic cop drama here].

With unrepentant tenacity, Conrad Pla's portrayal of Detective Pope drags down the performance of everyone around him by a combination of endless profanity and odd outbursts of pointless violence. His character isn't so much emotionally conflicted as prone to randomly-regurgitated emotion. We have to keeping asking the ether, what is he doing in this film? As if to remind us that Pla is, in actuality, a fighter-turned-actor, there is a brief, inexplicable scene of him hitting a punching bag. Either as a poor casting choice or a poorly-written character, the detective's role reduces the potential of this film dramatically.

Rescuing this film from complete mediocrity is the luxurious performance of Caroline Néron; her every motion and inflection seems perfectly timed for proper effect, making each line a mix of duplicity and crippling honesty. Bravo! If you must, see it for no other reason than her.
