Brad and Janet are in trouble again!

The people who brought us The Rocky Horror Picture Show are at it again. Brad and Janet are trapped in a town where all the world in one huge TV sound stage. The couple winds up on the bizarre game show, “Marriage Maze,” where Brad gets hauled off to the local booby hatch so he can learn “to care.” It’s all a plot by the show’s sleazy sponsor (also played by De Young) so he can have Janet all to himself.

This no-holds-barred spoof of TV and television audiences is garishly entertaining fun and frolic from beginning to end. So put on your little black dress and get set for kinky comedy and shocking suspense, without having to stand on line at midnight!

Is Connie Gomper the Ultimate Packers Fan? You Betcha!

After a lifetime of loyalty to the greatest football team in the world, Green Bay legend Connie Gomper has realized her lifelong ambition of becoming the nation’s best know Packer Backer!

On this, her first video, Connie proudly shows photos of her family with the Packers… gossips about the Packers at the beauty parlor… and takes you behind the scenes (into her garage actually) where she tapes her local Cable TV show “Gomper Gab with Connie.”

Educational? Yah, by golly! “Connie Gomper and the Pack” features Connie’s history of the team from “Bart to Brett,” with rare archival newsreel clips, exclusive NFL Films action footage, and special appearances by Coach Holmgren, Brett Favre, Aaron Taylor, Gilbert Brown, and record-setting receiver Robert Brooks who serenades Connie with his original song “Jump in the Stands.” Connie also introduces you to such fellow fanatics as Mel and Leonne Knocke, who have missed less than a dozen Packers games since 1929, and Steve Gay, whose 1966 Dodge motorhome, the “Big G,” is a Green Bay icon! All-in-all, Connie’s created the only video on earth that’s more fun than a Sunday afternoon in Green Bay!

From the VHS box:

Your every fear — all in one deadly enemy.

It can be anything. A fanged monster that won’t stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King.

Based on the King Of Horror’s 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but It is not clowning around. Instead, It terrifies youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing some to their untimely doom — until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later the evil resurfaces: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate stand against It.
