Our friends across the pond have a new horror film in their cinemas this weekend, Oliver Parker’s retelling of the classic Oscar Wilde tale Dorian Gray. Our latest commodity out of the UK, Gareth Jones, caught the flick and sent along a review.
When Dorian Gray, a wealthy but naïve and irresistible young man, has his portrait painted, he rashly wishes that he could remain as beautiful, youthful, and alluring as the handsome face in the portrait. Little does he know that his wish will come true. When encouraged by the decadent Lord Henry Wotton into a life of depravity and self-indulgence, Gray is stunned to discover that while the face in the painting is aging grotesquely, he is not! In fact, he remains as beautiful as ever. Nothing ages him… but Gray’s wanton lifestyle will eventually catch up with him, and the consequences of his reckless behavior will come to haunt him.
