"Some people may not like this movie, but aside from Bela Lugosi in the original Dracula of the 30s, no vampire movie has ever exactly been considered Oscar material. Sangre Eterna is no exception. However, it does manage to keep you entertained, which is what a movie is supposed to do. Right? It may be low budget, but it is a good combination of gore, mild suspense, and a fairly good mystery. The only thing I could think of that would make people not like this movie is that it's in Spanish and it might be confusing if you can't understand the language, but I'm pretty sure that the DVD comes with the English dolby option so there really shouldn't be any problem."
Creepy little horror film.

"Director Jorge Olquin's Eternal Blood (Sangre Eterna) is one stylish and creepy little horror film. Budgetary limitations are overcome with creativity by the talented director, cast and crew.Four friends, all "Goths," are enthralled by the vampire role playing game Eternal Blood. To them, especially their "leader" M, the game is an essential part of life. Unfortunately for them, they run afoul of some nasty real-life vampires lead by the appropriately named Dahmer, causing their dreamed up horrors to become all too real.The director wisely steers clear of the many cliches of the vampire sub-genre, focusing instead on a reality that can be bent, twisted and ultimately cracked. His characters, especially M, are not the typical hard partying idiots that crop up in so many horror films, but are instead lonely outcasts who have found a sense of community and home among the ranks of the Goth culture. As a result, the viewer can readily sympathize with their plight and root for them. The spfx are well done and not overblown or over played. The score, accentuated by several Spanish Goth bands, is excellent, perfectly complementing the visuals. The sets and cinematography are atmosphereic and rich in detail, aiding to the suspension of one's disbelief. All-in-all, a great film. See this film if you are a horror fan, or if you are looking for a few creatively off-beat chills. You won't be disappointed."
I love this movie!

"This is one of my favorite vampire movies.....I just wish I could get my hands on the soundtrack, which is incredible! It is definately an independent movie with a limited budget, which shows by way of some effects that could have been done much better with a bigger budget, but the rest of the movie more than makes up for it. The story line is quite original and I love that the movie is centered around the "goth" subculture, and it really keeps you guessing if the vampires are real, or just a delusion of the main character."
First Chilean Vampire Movie !!!

"A good effort was given to shoot this movie. In a place were local horror film makers do not exist (Chile), it's good to see that some people take time and money to develop an area that is not quite explored in this part of the world... The movie itself: A Journalism student called Carmilla is attracted to a guy (called just "M") and starts playing a Role Play Game called "Eternal Blood" were they play vampiric characters along with other friends. Soon "M" discovers that some of the guys he knows are acting strange and starts to fear that perhaps the game is more real than he ever thought...
Good make-up, excellent opening credit sequence (the best part of the movie, some say), perhaps a little bad acting from some minor characters (kind of El Mariachi...). But A LOT BETTER than those old vampire flicks from Jess Franco.
I recommend it only to extreme Horror & Vampire fans anyway."
