“Tim Burton’s imagination jumped into the saddle and held onto the bridle with Beetlejuice.” – Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
Say Beetlejuice three times, and all kinds of havoc will break loose. Then say A-bilities three times and know you’re investing in the future of Tucson’s blind and deaf children! A deliriously off-the-wall, fast paced comedy-horror, Beetlejuice was Tim Burton’s second feature – and it not only defined his signature mix of wild imagination, sweetly fractured characters, surreal sensibility, gothic whimsy and dazzling special effects, but also firmly established him as one of the most original movie makers of our time. Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin play a young married couple who are killed in a car accident but are stuck haunting this world before they can move on to the next. When an obnoxious yuppie couple and their unhappy, Goth-obsessed daughter (played by Catherine O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones and Winona Ryder in her breakout role) move in to their old home, Davis and Baldwin try every trick in the afterlife playbook to frighten them away. But when their fledgling haunting skills prove less than effective, the two turn in desperation to a veteran spook: a profane, malevolent, thoroughly gonzo spirit named Beetlejuice, played to over-the-top perfection by Michael Keaton. And that’s when the unique Burton blend of comedy and the macabre really takes off. (Dir. by Tim Burton, 1988, USA, 92 min., Rated PG)
