It

Thanks to the revamped 2017 film, It is once again pushed into the limelight. Based on Stephen King’s 1986 best-selling novel, It first saw the silver screen in 1990 when ABC aired it as a two-part, three-hour TV movie. The miniseries was a huge hit, attracting 30 million viewers in its premiere. In 2017 Bill Skarsgård took the reigns from Tim Curry in the role of the shapeshifting demon known as Pennywise. The 2017 film was also released to high acclaim, setting numerous box office records and becoming the highest-grossing horror film.

Varies based on the 2017 film or 1990 miniseries

Road House

If you’re not in the mood for a horror flick, maybe the 1989 action film Road House is more your style. Starring Patrick Swayze as a bouncer at a roadside bar in Missouri who has to protect the small town form a corrupt businessman, this film is known for being bad. In fact, it was nominated for five Golden Raspberry Awards: Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay. It didn’t win any of those prestigious accolades, but it did earn the honor of being chosen as one of The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made, and in 2003 an off-Broadway musical was produced in its honor.

Uncle Buck

For a film that has an intentional comedic undertone of the same era, consider the John Hughes 1989 comedy Uncle Buck. The film tells the story of a family of five who moves from Indianapolis to the Chicago suburbs due to a job promotion. When the parents have to temporarily have to go back to Indy they leave the 15-year-old, 8-year-old, and 6-year-old in the care of Uncle Buck, an unemployed bachelor who lives in the city and earns his money by betting on rigged horse races. Hilarity ensues and life lessons are learned all around from then on. Filmed and produces entirely in the Chicagoland area, the film was placed No. 1 in the box office on its opening weekend.

Harry and the Hendersons

Another family comedy from the same time, Harry and the Hendersons tells the tale of a Pacific Northwest family who accidentally befriends a Sasquatch. The creature, lovingly named Harry, escapes and the family is forced to search for him, trying to find him before notorious hunter Jacques LaFleur gets there first. Though the film only has a 42% on Rotten Tomatoes, it won an Academy Award for Best Makeup and inspired a TV series spinoff of the same name that ran from January 1991 to June 1993.

The Green Mile

If you’re wanting to fully get out of the ‘80s and are in the mood for a more serious film, The Green Mile may be for you. The 1999 fantasy crime drama stars Tom Hanks and is adapted from Stephen King’s novel of the same name. The film is told as a flashback, from the memories of Paul Edgecomb, a former death row corrections officer now living in an assisted-living home who witnessed supernatural events in the prison. It received high acclaim from critics and was nominated and won numerous awards.
