The Picture of Dorian Gray isn't awful, though it's certainly an instance in which an outright debacle would have made a much more interesting film.

Sterling adaptation of Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel about a handsome young Victorian aristocrat.
Literate and classy horror, brilliantly directed and played.
