Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice

“It’s showtime.”

After Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) die in a car accident, they find themselves stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable Deetzes (Catherine O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones) and teen daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands attempt to scare them away without success. Their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rambunctious spirit whose “help” quickly becomes dangerous for the Maitlands and innocent Lydia.

“Brilliantly bizarre and overflowing with ideas, BEETLEJUICE offers some of Michael Keaton‘s most deliciously manic work – and creepy, funny fun for the whole family.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

Tim Burton‘s imagination jumped into the saddle and held onto the bridle with BEETLEJUICE.” (Slant Magazine)

“The joy of BEETLEJUICE is its completely bizarre — but perfectly realized — view of the world.” (Washington Post)
