Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's no camp in this vamp; the lady, and the film, is a tramp."
‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"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."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"You watch this brain-dead film in a similar state yourself, until its culmination at--where else?--the cheesiest of masked balls."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"...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."
‑ Rory L. Aronsky, Film Threat
"This oddball mixture of bloodsucking horror and soft-core porn is both objectively terrible and perversely fascinating."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"That the acting is stilted and that the filmmakers and especially Pla take themselves so seriously serves to make Eternal deliriously silly camp fare."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Perfect for watching on video on a cool Cape Cod night, but maybe not so arousing in an arthouse for 10 bucks and change."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"But for all its exposed skin, the film's pulse is hard to find."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"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."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"It was cooler when it was called Basic Instinct."
‑ , E! Online
"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."
‑ Mark Olsen, L.A. Weekly
"Quite silly and not especially scary."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Neron and Pla look like porn stars and have about the same level of acting ability."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"Eternal is only occasionally completely stupid...but it's never very bright either."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"the photography only creates a sense of suspense that something worth seeing may eventually appear"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
