Product Description

Before making Batman, director Tim Burton and star Michael Keaton teamed up for this popular black comedy about a young couple (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) whose premature death leads them to a series of wildly bizarre afterlife exploits. As ghosts in their own New England home, they're faced with the challenge of scaring off the pretentious new owners (Catherine O'Hara and Jeffrey Jones), whose daughter (Winona Ryder) has an affinity for all things morbid. Keaton plays the mischievous Beetlejuice, a freelance "bio-exorcist" who's got an evil agenda behind his plot to help the young undead newlyweds. The film is a perfect vehicle for Burton's visual style and twisted imagination, with clever ideas and gags packed into every scene. Beetlejuice is also a showcase for Keaton, who tackles his title role with maniacal relish and a dark edge of menace. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Remains one of my favorites July 8 2004
Format:DVD
Re-watching Beetlejuice more than a decade after it thrilled, frightened and enthralled me as a child makes me sad about Mr. Tim Burton's transformation into a Hollywood favorite semi-quirky remake-director (Planet Of The Apes, Sleepy Hollow) in recent years (Big Fish indeed signals a hopeful recovery - if only Charlie And The Chocolate Factory doesn't spoil it...!) At the young age of thirty, and in only his second full length feature, Burton created a cult favorite that is one for the ages. In this bizarre, off-beat script by Michael McDowell (who collaborated with him before on an episode of the 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' television series) he found the ideal vehicle for his unique and strange imagination - and indeed, Burton's unique vision is more apparent here than in any of his movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas being the happy exception. Though it's true that it's not as personal a creation as 'Nightmare' or Edward Scissorhands, this is the movie that would place Burton on the map as a major director, and would earn him his breakthrough job - directing the first Batman feature film. It is on Beetlejuice that he would also start several long-time collaborations with actors who would work with him again in the future - Michael Keaton (Batman & Batman Returns), Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhands), Jeffrey Jones (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), Glenn Shadix and Catherine O'Hara (both of whom did voiceovers for Nightmare Before Christmas).
So, again, while Beetlejuice isn't as deep and personal film as we would see in Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood or Big Fish, Beetlejuice is an incredibly imaginative and captivating film and is a perfect black comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beetlejuice better in Blu Nov. 9 2008
By Johnnie Neptune TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The transition to Blu-ray of Tim Burton's Beetlejuice sets a very high standard for older movies making this move. The colors are eye-popping - while Tim Burton sets are always well envisioned and most often otherworldly, Blu-ray gives the viewer a new visual experience of this movie. Almost every scene is beautifully surreal.

Happily, the sound is equally outstanding. The Danny Elfman soundtrack is better than ever and the scene around the dinner table when the guests are possessed to break out into a Harry Belafonte song reaches a new level of hilarity.

Though this is an older movie it doesn't look it (other than a few dated special effects). It remains a superior effort for both Burton and Michael Keaton who creates a truly unforgettable character in the title role. If you liked this movie, you'll love the Blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great March 12 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I loved this movie when it came out and I still love it today. My only complaint is I find that there isn't to much difference between the dvd and blu ray version as far as picture quality goes.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tim Burton classic! Dec 10 2012
By JillyAE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Beetlejuice is a 1988 American comedy horror fantasy film directed by Tim Burton! Its one of my all time favourite movies! I watch it every Halloween :) 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 the underworld who tries to scare away the new inhabitants permanently. The film stars Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Winona Ryder, and Michael Keaton as the eponymous Betelgeuse (the film's title being a phonetic spelling of the character's name). Every minute of this movie is creepy, humourous fun! A must own for your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mode d'emploi pour les morts Nov. 26 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Beetlejuice est un classique sur l'après-mort. L'apprentissage est ardu pour épouvanter les nouveaux propriétaires sauf que leur fille voit les fantômes.
