Picture of Dorian Gray, The

CLASSIC/HORROR. In a Faustian pact, the young, handsome Dorian Gray trades his soul in exchange for eternal youth and beauty. Pursuing beauty and pleasure above all else, Dorian descends into a life of debauchery that eventually leads to acts of blackmail, suicide, and murder. As years go by, Dorian’s physical appearance remains unchanged; however, Dorian’s portrait not only ages but depicts his loathsome, corrupt soul. Tortured by a guilty conscience and wanting to absolve himself, Dorian tries to destroy the portrait, leading to the discovery of a hideous corpse.
