The Elephant Man archive review: how the Victorians dealt with the unacceptable and the inexplicable

To mark the 40th anniversary of its original release, StudioCanal are proud to release the first ever 4K UHD version of David Lynch’s The Elephant Man in a special Collector’s Edition.

Lynch’s moving true story of humanity and bravery stars John Hurt in the iconic role of Joseph ‘John’ Merrick. Forced into becoming a circus sideshow freak and later rescued by surgeon, Frederick Treves (played by Anthony Hopkins), Merrick escapes a life of cruelty and tries to fit into a world ruled by Victorian sensibilities.

The new 4K restoration was carried out under the supervision of Lynch who also personally curated the colour correction. The three-disc Collectors’ Edition includes a pop-up gatefold sleeve, 64-page booklet and five stunning artcards. Bonus material includes interviews with Lynch, the actors and a behind-the-scenes stills gallery.

The Elephant Man is released on digital download, DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD Collector’s Edition on 6 April after a cinema re-release.

We have a top prize Collector’s Edition to give away and three runner-up Blu-rays.

The competition closes on Thursday 9 April and is open to UK residents only.
