The Lawnmower Man 2-Disc Collector's Edition Blu-ray hits this Summer!

05.09.2017by: Mike Sprague

True story, as much as I dig the flick's awesome title, I have never seen THE LAWNMOWER MAN. I have read the short story from Stephen King that flick was (supposedly) based on, but that story had so little do do with the finished film that King sued to have his name removed from the final film.

Anyhow, this does not in itself spell out a "don't watch" for me, but unless someone comes out and tells me, "dude, you HAVE to see THE LAWNMOWER MAN" then I'll just continue to skip it. But I'm interested to see Jenny Wright (NEAR DARK) back in action. We'll see if it makes my weekend list of flicks.

All the same, the film is getting a pretty pimp special edition via Shout! Factory here soon and we have all the details for you to check out below, including a 4K restoration, and director's cut. Pretty cool shite!

THE LAWNMOWER MAN synopsis:

Dr. Lawrence Angelo (Pierce Brosnan) is a brilliant scientist obsessed with perfecting virtual reality software. When his experiments on animals fail, he finds the ideal substitute – Jobe Smith (Jeff Fahey), a slow-witted gardener. Dr. Angelo's goal is to benefit his human guinea pig and ultimately mankind itself, but evil lurks the guise of "the Shop," a shadowy group that seeks to use the technology to create an invincible war machine. When the experiments change the simple Jobe into a superhuman being, the stage is set for a Jekyll-and-Hyde struggle for the control of Jobe's mind and the future of the world.

THE LAWNMOWER MAN was directed by Brett Leonard from a script by Leonard and Gimel Everett. The film stars Pierce Brosnan, Jeff Fahey, Jenny Wright and Geoffrey Lewis.

The film hits Blu-ray June 20th. You can pre-order film on Blu-ray RIGHT HERE.
