Tagline: Evil Is Irresistable
Directed by: Stephen Frears
Written by: Valerie Martin, Christopher Hampton
Actors include: Julia Roberts, John Malkovich
Length: 108 minutes
An overly long retelling of the Jekyll & Hyde story only with big names. This time it focuses on a servant (Mary of course) who works for Mr. Jekyll and over time she starts to take to him (romantically even). When Jekyll's assistant shows up she's a little stunned but finds herself charmed him too. It really takes an interesting story and puts a boring spin on it, in fact this is pretty much a romantic film with some horror elements (not nearly enough to keep most fans happy, myself included). Pretty much a waste of time, but I guess it could have been worse!
