Although Having a Confused Beginning, a Good Vampire Movie
Carmilla (Blanca Lewin) is a student of Journalism, who has relationship problems with her stepmother. She needs to interview a person for her homework of philosophy class, and she meets M (Juan Pablo Ogalde), a vampire lover that plays a RPG called "Eternal Blood" with his Gothic friends Elizabeth (Patricia Lopez) and Martin (Claudio Espinoza), in a seminar. After the interview, she is invited to participate in the game and dates M in a party in a house owned by the weird Dahmer (Carlos Borquez). The group uses drugs, and M is convinced that Dahmer is a vampire and is transforming his friends also in vampires. He decides to use the content of the philosophy classes to save Carmilla and his friends from the claws of Dahmer.
Although having a confused beginning, "Sangre Eterna" is a good vampire movie. In the beginning, the development of the characters is very weak and it is difficult to understand what is happening. After some fifteen minutes, there is a clarification, and the story becomes dramatic regarding the relationship of Carmilla and M with their families. Then the gore and Gothic story becomes very intriguing and has a great conclusion. The dark cinematography and music score fits very well to this simple, but efficient film. My only remark is the exaggerated merchandising. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Sangue Eterno" ("Eternal Blood")
Note: On 23 May 2010 I saw this film again.
