Continuing on with our 90's Cyber Punk Dystopian Future Month, we've got another cult classic from Virtuosity Director, Brett Leonard. It's the 1992 VR Thriller, The Lawnmower Man starring awesome character actor, Jeff Fahey and a not-quite-James Bond; Pierce Brosnon. This movie tried to show us the 2 true horrors of the 90's, 32 Bit VR games and DRUGS!!! Lawnmower Man tells the story of Jobe, a hapless lawnmower man who just wants to be smart enough to read the text boxes in the Cybo Man comic books he collects and to maybe kiss the town floozie, Marnie. It also tells the story of Dr. Angelo, a workaholic mad scientist who grieves the death of his science fair project Chimp and neglects his wife Caroline who just wants to go to "The City." Dr. Angelo finds a new science fair project in Jobe, where he uses VR and drugs to try and increase his intelligence....with terrifying results!
