Beetlejuice (1988)

1988 | USA | Tim Burton | ★★★★★

Starring Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton, and Winona Ryder, Tim Burton's wonderfully entertaining Beetlejuice is a stylish, strikingly crafted, oft hilarious paranormal comedy, stuffed with larger-than-life performances, charming effects, and memorable set-pieces.


"The Maitlands (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) are a happy couple who, when killed in a car crash, return as ghosts to their beloved home to wreak havoc on the ghastly yuppie family who have moved in. Being novices at haunting, their efforts go unnoticed by the house's new inhabitants except Goth daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder), who doesn't mind one bit. At their wit's end, the ghostly couple call on a despicably disgusting demon named 'Beetlejuice' (Michael Keaton) for help." Warner Bros
