All you need to do to summon him is say his name three times....
For many, this is one of Tim Burton's greatest moments as a director. The sharp, macabre, funny story of Adam and Barbara Maitland, a recently deceased couple who find the living are haunting their house. They struggle to get rid of Charles and Delia Deetz through normal means, and so enlist the help of "bio-exorcist" Betelgeuse - a madcap frenzied perverse Ghost with the Most, with a scene-stealing 90% ad-libbed performance by Michael Keaton.
But Beetlejuice originally started as a serious horror movie, so how did it become a horror comedy with "B-movie visual effects" (Tim Burton's words, not mine!) that takes a serious look at death, the afterlife and identity?
I would love to hear your thoughts on Beetlejuice!
