Pact with the Devil begins with one Louis (Ethan Erickson in his first starring role) working as a go-fer for a blonde fashion photographer (Jennifer Nitsch). One of the other photographers, Henry Wooten (Malcom McDowell) takes an interest in Louis. Henry talks to Louis about his interests and it turns out that Louis is trying to become a professional photographer in his own right, but is going nowhere in his quest. Henry tells Louis that with his good looks, he ought to be "in front of the camera." In other words, Louis should endeavor to become a male model. Louis agrees to hire Henry as his business manager and as a result, Henry takes some photographs of Louis and shows them around to other photographers. Soon, Louis's career as a model is booming.

However, there are problems. Louis's girlfriend (Amy Sloan) gets jealous of his accomplishments and accuses him of "selling out." Also, Louis comes to realize that his new career will last only as long as his good, youthful looks do. Henry, however offers Louis a solution to his problem, which Louis comes to call a "pact with the devil." Louis changes his name to Dorian Gray. Henry takes a photograph of "Dorian" that is blown up to large size and framed. As long as this photo exists, Dorian will maintain his youthful good looks and enjoy perfect health while his framed photo ages. In other words, the image of Dorian ages the way that the human being formerly named Louis would have if he did not make his pact with the devil Henry Wooten. If the picture is destroyed, then Louis's looks will revert to what they were in the picture at the time of its destruction and Louis's health will be similarly impaired. Truly, Louis/Dorian's arrangement with his business manager Henry Wooten is a pact with the devil.

This movie is a comedy, isn't it? This garbage movie cannot be rated as a drama and it is far from being a faithful and a well produced adaptation of Wilde's brilliant novel. In fact, the only thing that I can think of Wilde after watching it, is he spinning on his grave and saying: "Oh God, as a mere mortal, I know I must have committed many sins, but this punishment is too cruel to me and I guess I should not deserve such a bad thing". Another question I also ask myself is: what is Malcolm McDowell doing in this awful movie??? Oh my God, I think that after he taking part on this crap movie, he must have thrown his noble reputation, of good actor on notable movies, in the gutter.

This is the kind of movie that you must watch alone and locked in your bedroom or living room, because it will make you feel really embarassed or ashamed of it. Yes, take the kids out of the room because there will be some scenes too strong. And not because there are some soft sex scenes, but because they don't make any sense at all. The screenplay of this movie is a total failure and it's so childish, cheesy and nonsense, that it'll make you sick.

There are so many absurd scenes in this movie, that it's impossible to mention them all here. But to mention just some of the worst parts:

1. Dorian (who actually is called Louis and has his name changed by his manager, who is called Henry Wooten, played by Malcolm McDowell, that is the obvious allusion to Lord Henry Wotton's from Wilde's novel - Lol) thinks that it's a good deal to make a pact with the devil, after hearing his manager to talk about the Wilde's famous character Dorian Gray and his story. But he only does it in the middle of a rainy gloomy night, when he tries to open a bottle of beer and cuts his finger on the bottle-cap.

Based on Oscar Wilde's classic "The Picture of Dorian Gray", this film "deals" with a common stage hand named 'Lewis' {Ethan Erickson} who makes a pact with The Devil in exchange for wealth and fame, and ultimately, to fund his passion for photography, which merely became an erstwhile segueway to his self-imposed damnation. Immediately, upon dabbing a mirror with his blood one stormy night, he begins experiencing an increase in the quality of life, as all his desires and indulgences are met. A rather mysterious man with the unlikely name of "Henry" {Michael Mc Dowell}, detects potential in him, thereby granting his favor by making him a super-model, to which he takes advantage of a marvellous lifestyle of carnal delights, and all he has to do is essentially "strike a pose", while remaining youthful and handsome forever, while his hidden portrait assumes old age - but wouldn't you know it, he eventually dissappears and becomes an ingrate. At one point, he becomes essentially a "kept man" in the manse of a European couple wherein he becomes the surrogate lover of a gorgeous brunette while her husband watches on - that relationship eventually leads to a lethal extreme. The prodigal eventually returns to the source of his fortune, and not being able to handle fortune and fame, eventually commits suicide and reverts to his so-called "true form", reminiscient of Nosferatu. So The Prince of Darkness goes back to the drawing board and seeks out another hopeful who may appreciate the gift so graciosly conferred.

What I primarily enjoyed about this film is that it did not rely heavily upon the typical exaggerrated aesthetics of the mythos, but kept the storyline subtle enough to lend an air of pseudo-believability in a contemporary world.
