Released:

Rating:
R

Lawnmower Man is the cult 1992 loose science fiction adaptation of the popular Stephen King short story, directed by Brett Leonard (Virtuosity, Hideaway) with a virtual reality instead of supernatural bent. Dr. Angelo (Pierce Brosnan, Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Mrs. Doubtfire, The World Is Not Enough) is a doctor who does experiments with virtual reality with monkeys for combat purposes. However, the experiment goes wrong and the test subjects are killed. Dr. Angelo wants to do VR work with humans however his superiors do not want him doing that. Dr. Angelo takes a hiatus from his work, and decides to test the VR with Jobe (Jeff Fahey, Psycho III, Planet Terror, Machete, Body Parts) a man who is mentally challenged, and who cuts the neighborhood lawns for a living. As Dr. Angelo does the tests on Jobe, Jobe becomes much smarter, but the experiments have some nasty side effects.
