There have been a lot of bad Stephen King films, and a lot of films based on the author's works that are virtually unrecognisable from their source material. But of all the films bearing Stephen King's name on the poster only one drew the horror writer's ire to the point of filing a lawsuit to expunge any connection between him and the movie, and that film is The Lawnmower Man. A tale of a mentally challenged landscaper who, through use of virtual reality, becomes a digital god, The Lawnmower Man combined live action and computer generated images to give the audience something they couldn't see on their home PC. Is this a film worth booting up, or should the Now Playing hosts have followed the author's example and disavowed this film from their Stephen King Retrospective Series? Listen to cyber-gods Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart to find out!
