Everybody talks about a Necroscope movie and ignore BL's eminently filmable other novels, in fact one has already been made (albeit badly!); startlingly similarly themed and plotted - LAWNMOWER MAN!
Bear with me here... Psychomech was written before the advent of VR - but preempts it fantastically - and before Stven Kings short story (...can anyone say 'A twist in the Tale!')
Tell me if you think that this is ridiculous, or if you agree... I always like a good argument...

Darkman... everything doesn't have to be done well or exact, lets face it - Lawnmower Man wasn't that good anyway, not to the justice that Psychomech deserves.
If you don't believe or can't see that LawnM wasn't ripped from BL's Psychmech...
...a man who is less than he could be is exposed to a machine that alters his mind in such a way that he grows, becomes powerful, possesses all kinds of psychokinetic powers, and more...
...need I say more?
Sure, don't you think Kevin Sorbo would have done better playing David Hero rather than Kull the Conqueror? And who do you think ought to play Prof. Leonard Dingle?

Prof. Leonard Dingle...
The first book in the Dreamlands series... 'Hero of Dreams'... expains it all, check it out! The only problem with making the Dreamlands into a movie is that Hero & Eldin would come across a bit too much like Mel Gibson & Danny Glover, works fine in the books, but it's been done too many times on celluloid.
Besides, I just want to see Pychomech done justice to on the big screen... ay comments?
