Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (also subtitled Jobe's War) is a 1996 science fiction action film written and directed by Farhad Mann and starring Matt Frewer, Patrick Bergin, Austin O'Brien, and Ely Pouget. It is a sequel to the 1992 film The Lawnmower Man, which in turn was a loose adaptation of a Stephen King short story of the same title. The film was panned by both critics and fans of the original film. The founder of virtual reality, Dr. Benjamin Trace (Patrick Bergin), has lost a legal battle to secure a patent on the most powerful worldwide communications chip ever invented.

In the Mouth of Madness

The film can also be seen as a reference to Stephen King, who, like Lovecraft, writes horror fiction set in New England hamlets. King is mentioned twice towards the beginning of the movie; the characters both state that Cain outsells King and all other authors. In the Mouth of Madness was released in December 1994 in Italy, and on February 3, 1995 in the U.S. In the U.S., it grossed $3,441,807 in its first weekend, and $8,946,600 total during its run. It was a financial disappointment, but it did earn enough to cover the film's budget. A Blu-ray Disc of the film by New Line Cinema was released on October 15, 2013. In 2016, the film was re-released on DVD by Warner Archive Collection. Shout!

Danse Macabre (book)

Danse MacabreDanse Macabre'' (book)
Danse Macabre is a 1981 non-fiction book by Stephen King, about horror fiction in print, TV, radio, film and comics, and the influence of contemporary societal fears and anxieties on the genre.

Romero, or anyone else involved in the production of the first two films, was released direct-to-video in 2007 (though it was finished in 2006) to mostly negative reviews. This film, in a fashion similar to the original Creepshow, features five short, darkly comedic horror stories.
