The demonic comedy that put acclaimed film director Tim Burton firmly on the map. 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.
Before making Batman, director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton teamed up for this popular black comedy about a young couple (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) whose premature death leads them to a series of wildly bizarre afterlife exploits. As ghosts in their own New England home, they're faced with the challenge of scaring off the pretentious new owners (Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones), whose daughter (Winona Ryder) has an affinity for all things morbid. Keaton plays the mischievous Beetlejuice, a freelance "bio-exorcist" who's got an evil agenda behind his plot to help the young undead newlyweds. The film is a perfect vehicle for Burton's visual style and twisted imagination, with clever ideas and gags packed into every scene. Beetlejuice is also a showcase for Keaton, who tackles his title role with maniacal relish and a dark edge of menace.--Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Adam (Alex Baldwin) and Barbara (Geena Davis) play the recently deceased homeowners who are desperate to haunt yuppie couple Delia (Catherine O'Hara) and Charles (Jeffrey Jones) off their property. Adam and Barbara find a useful ally in depressive goth kid Lydia (Winona Ryder), before the titular 'Betelgeuse' (Michael Keaton) throws a spanner in the works.
In a way, it's a pity the film has been granted a 15 certificate because there's plenty here for kids to enjoy. Adam and Barbara's complete acceptance of their predicament (namely being dead) is a conceit usually reserved for children's films, and their ensuing antics play out like a kind of ghoulish Home Alone. But then Keaton's vile, swearing, swaggering Beetlejuice steps into shot. It's a hilarious performance, perhaps one that Jim Carrey might have a go at these days; and yet I doubt Carrey would be able to create such a magnificently obnoxious hick.
The production design and make-up is fantastic. The purgatory-style waiting room scenes, with all their shark attack victims and shrunken heads, perfectly house Burton's love for pantomime black humour. Some of the 'bigger' special effects, particularly in the desert netherworld that awaits Adam and Barbara outside their front door, look dated. But hey, no amount of CGI will look this charming after 20 years.
The deliciousness and inventiveness of the ensemble cast and director shine through once more.
Reversing the usual ghost story formula of a house being haunted by the dead but this time by the living. The visuals are arresting and imaginative and the performances, especially from Michael KEATON, are perfectly at ease with the weirdness of the entire project - out of kilter as it is with everyday reality.
When I saw it had been released as a DVD I was delighted and promptly threw away the dodgy old vhs tape I had recorded as a child and could no longer play anyway!!
The story starts with a young couple in their beautiful house having a tragic accident on a trip to the store. They get home- and soon discover they are in fact ghosts, trapped in their own home.
A family buys the house and the couple do a terrible job at trying to scare them away- that's when beetle juice comes in- trying to scare the family with underhand tactics being quite a vulgar character.
I don't want to go into too much detail about the film, as you should watch it for yourself, but it is a great classic from the 80's and is well worth the watch. I don't know how many times I have watched it but I never get bored. Highly recommended!
