The Lawnmower Man Collection Unboxing

Until now, 1992 sci-fi horror flick The Lawnmower Man – and its derided 1995 follow-up Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyperspace – are films that I had frankly forgotten even existed. I have a bizarrely clear memory of watching the first film on a battered old VHS tape in a holiday home in Cornwall, but hadn’t thought about the film again until 101 Films’ announcement of a Blu-ray collection. This beautiful boxset houses both the theatrical and director’s cut of the first film, along with a plethora of special features, and the sequel. It’s a wonderful boxset and offers an opportunity for audiences to rediscover these bizarre Crichton-esque cyberthrillers in sparkling HD. This release marks the Blu-ray debut of the films here in the UK and serves as another reminder of the love that 101 Films put into their releases of cult films like this. An absolute treat. Bravo.
