Stephen King’s It on VHS video. Starring Richard Thomas, Tim Reid, Annette O’Toole, Tim Curry, Richard Masur, John Ritter, Harry Anderson, Dennis Christopher. Directed by Tommy Lee Wallace. 1990.
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.

Americathon on VHS. Starring John Ritter, Peter Riegert, Harvey Korman, Fred Willard, Zane Buzby, Chief Dan George, Elvis Costello, Jay Leno, Meat Loaf, George Carlin. Written by Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman. Directed by Neal Israel. 1979.
From the box:
It’s the 1990’s and the world’s oil is gone. The United States Treasury is empty and a billionaire loan shark is about to foreclose on the nation explaining “We all gotta eat.” The solution: a telethon to save Uncle Sam from Bankruptcy. With this as a launching pad Americathon explodes into comic outer space. Written by Firesign Theater veterans Phil Proctor and Peter Bergman, this wicked and screamingly funny satire stars Harvey Korman, Fred Willard and Peter Riegert with a very special appearance by John Ritter as President of the United States. You also notice the brilliant cameo appearances by Elvis Costello and George Carlin. This cult classic will have you in stitches as the fate of the nation is decided by the lunatic fringe!
