More info

Beetlejuice is a 1988 American dark comedyfilm directed by Tim Burton, produced by The Geffen Film Company and distributed by Warner Bros.

The plot revolves around a recently deceased young couple who become ghosts haunting their former home and an obnoxious, devious "bio-exorcist" named Betelgeuse from theunderworld who tries to scare away the new inhabitants permanently.

Beetlejuice stars Alec BaldwinGeena Davis,Winona RyderCatherine O'HaraJeffrey Jones,Sylvia Sidney, and Michael Keaton as the titular Betelgeuse (the film's title being a phonetic spelling of the character's name).

After the success of Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Burton was sent several scripts and became disheartened by their lack of imagination and originality. When he was sent Michael McDowell's original script for Beetlejuice, Burton agreed to direct, although Larry Wilson andWarren Skaaren were hired to rewrite it.
