A Hidden "Gem"
19 January 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

The Oval Portrait is based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. Poe's story is one of his shortest only two pages long. So to create a film that is around 1 1/2 hours long must have been a difficult task but it was done with this film - and beautifully I must add.

This is a film that has escaped me for years. I acquired a copy of this one from the Pure Terror 50 Movie Pack and I am pleased this film was added to the collection.

Overall this is a good film - especially if you are interested in movies that are based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. I was not disappointed with this film adaptation.

7/10
