    Tim Burton was at his peak in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, and ‘Beetlejuice' is a fine example of that. Beetlejuice is lighthearted and fun, with great performances from Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin as the Maitlands, the unfortunate young couple who die in an accident but struggle to deal with it. But the real scene-stealers are Michael Keaton as the wisecracking, objectionable, ‘Betelgeuse' (pronounced Beetlejuice), a freelancing bio-exorcist who resides in the after-world, and Catherine O'Hara as the stuck-up, highly-strung, yuppie mother Delia Deetz, whose family take over the Maitland's house after the Maitlands pass away. Winona Ryder is vey good as the sullen, depressed goth daughter Lydia Deere in what is possibly her best role. Keaton is hilarious, and exudes comic energy. Director Tim Burton crafts a typically rich and visually engaging world for the scenes in the after life realm, where a lot of the story takes place. The special effects seem lame by today's standards, but considered were excellent at the time. The storyline may be silly, but it is entertaining. There is plenty of good supernatural comedy baked into the script, and some great visual gags as well. Beetlejuice is a rare example of a good horror comedy, well worth watching.

    Absolutely enlivened by the magic mind of Tim Burton, this hilarious horror film lives up to its name without fail, and is probably one of the most classic ‘80s films of all time.

    I don't know what i just watched, but Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder were amazing. Tim Burton really has a great and unique directing and storytelling style.

    Nobody can play this game of ghosts especially since the couple was left high and dry on what they can and cannot do but these people are so nice they just do not know what to do because the book of the dead was not left for them.

    The dinner table scene is amazing and Keaton rips in the titular role. Not really an exciting or even interesting story, however the early events of the film act as a great foundation or setup for the clever writing and humor building off of it. There will also always be something very charming about '80s special effects.

    This movie is bizarre and strange to the world of an ordinary couple, who seem to be cursed by the Beetlejuice. This movie is probably one you are not going to regret watching so go and get the popcorn and get ready for an exciting adventure.

    Stands the test of time and proof that Michael Keaton is one of the funniest/talented actors
