Beetlejuice (1988)

beetlejuiceBy Scott Goldfine

A young couple drowns and must learn how to “survive” in the afterlife in this unusual ghost story comedy. Michael Keaton plays “Beetlejuice” — a despicable character who is employed by the couple to exorcise the obnoxious people living in their old house (new haunt).

This Tim Burton (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Batman“) film is clever, imaginative and has fantastic visual effects. But the humor is amusing rather than uproarious. Also stars Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis.
