Four hundred years ago, Erzebeth Bathory of Transylvania became known as the ‘Blood Countess.’ She routinely tortured young women until her bedroom floor was covered in puddles of blood and was known to actually bite their flesh. This is the historical background for Eternal, a modern day vampire tale that borrows this legend.
Montreal Detective Ray Pope’s (Conrad Pla) wife is missing. He suspects Elizabeth Kane (Caroline Néron) and her assistant Irina (Victoria Sanchez), but little does he know that Elizabeth seduced his wife and then fed from her.
Elizabeth must bathe in the blood of young women who desire her to keep her youthful appearance, and we see her other female sexual conquests and victims. At the same time, she plays with Ray and his investigation.
When Elizabeth runs to Venice, he follows to try to trap her, and he learns about the Erzebeth of old, whom some people say never died. Can Pope solve the riddle? Can he stop more deaths of young women … or will he fall under her spell as well?
As lesbian vampire movies go, this one brings an original plot line to the table, and Caroline Néron creates a very erotic character. (AB)
