The Elephant Man

Dr. Frederic Treves (Anthony Hopkins) discovers Joseph (John) Merrick (John Hurt) in a sideshow. Born with a congenital disorder, Merrick uses his disfigurement to earn a living as the 'Elephant Man.' Treves brings Merrick into his home, discovering that his rough exterior hides a refined soul, and that Merrick can teach the stodgy British upper class of the time a lesson about dignity. Merrick becomes the toast of London and charms a caring actress (Anne Bancroft) before his death at 27.

What's new on This Thing, Anyway?

I've recently added "Video Store Mode" to the options, which should give a little bit more of a feeling of browsing the aisles, looking for an evening's entertainment by deliberating between great box art. Choose your services and click "Video Store Mode" to try it out!

Another new addition is the "Trailer Playlist," which allows you to pick your specified streaming services, genres and date range, and creates a custom playlist of trailers for your entertainment!

Lastly, I've made the site a bit more mobile-friendly and have started to add links to genre film websites on the films themselves, so you can find some outside opinions on the classy trash you love!
