Beetle Juice (1988)
A couple of recently deceased ghosts contract the services of a “bio-exorcist” in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house.
Love at first sight! This movie WAS horror comedy. With effects that knocked out the competition and became a favorite of children and adults. Whimsically dark and superbly produced and directed. Always a treat to re-visit.
Tim Burton is the King of the bizarre, funny and vibrant dark films. His style is his own. Y’ gotta give it to the guy by sticking with his guns. Thank the movie gods a director such as he, exists in our time.
This is a movie about friendship, love and family. Throw in the wrench and things get interesting. Backed by the music of the whimsically noted Danny Elfman.
Michael Keaton is an acting god! Let me count the ways: Night Shift (1982), Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Gung Ho (1986), The Paper (1994), Multiplicity (1996) and The Other Guys (2010) and on and on and on…
Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis are celebrity giants who have nurtured me through my youth. Top rank actors right there, and they did not disappoint. They had nice chemistry and led the film quite well. Loved the underworld scenes with the creepy folk and sandworms. The side characters were definitely “characters”.
Oh Boy, my crush ‘til this very day Winona Ryder. My dream girl, Lydia. Troubled, smart, cynical, dark around the eyes with a heart for all things strange.
This movie brings me back. Undeniably one of those that i will take to the grave. Haven’t seen this yet? Go grab a copy now!
