Movie Roulette

The Stunt Man

Running from the law, Vietnam vet Cameron (Steve Railsback) stumbles on a movie shoot just in time to interfere with a staged accident, causing the stunt man's death. Rather than turn Cameron in, director Eli Cross (Peter O'Toole) makes him an offer he can't refuse: replace the dead stunt man in return for safe harbor. Despite objections about Cameron's inexperience, Eli keeps him on, figuring that a vet will add an extra charge of realism to the World War I opus that he's filming. As leading lady Nina (Barbara Hershey) returns Cameron's affections, and Eli becomes ever more inscrutably mercurial, Cameron begins to wonder how far Eli will go to get the screen effects he wants, and if he would think twice about killing the stunt man.

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!
