5.0 out of 5 stars
a dark comic delight, 9 Mar. 2002
What else can I say, this film is just pure Tim Burton. It is a black comedy in which Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis star as the Maitland's - a recently deceased couple who to their horror have a yuppie family buy their house and transform it. This proves too much so the Maitlands contact Beetlejuice - the bio-exorcist (in the form of the wonderfully meanacing and yet so charismatic Michael Keaton), in the hope that he will rid the house of the family. Winona Ryder stars as the yuppie teenage daughter with issues, which is typical of many of her early roles.
I first saw this film on TV years ago and it is still one of the best and most imaginative films I have ever seen.
Tim Burton - I salute you!
