Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!

Beetlejuice - 1988

The trailer:

Beetlejuice- 1988

The only knowledge I have of Beetlejuice is of the cartoon series I
watched of it as a child. I hadn't seen the movie up until now, and so
I had little but basic knowledge going into the film.

The plot revolves around a newly dead couple who become ghosts and
haunt their former home. When they ultimately fail at scaring away the new tenants, the couple calls upon, and is joined by a "bio-exorcist" from
the underworld named Betelgeuse. Little is known about him in general,
like his age and of when he was alive. One of the darkly funny aspects
about him is that he has seen the exorcist 167 times, calling it the
"funniest film he's seen".
