STARRING: Michael Keaton, Wynona Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O'Hara, Glenn Shadix

1988, 92 Minutes, Directed by: Tim Burton

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.

Director Tim (Batman, Mars Attacks!) Burton makes good use of all the possibilities offered by the plot and gives us some wildly original creatures, most notably Michael Keaton as the terrifying Beetlejuice.

Funny and original.
