Michael Keaton, Academy Award winner Geena Davis, Alex Baldwin, and Winona Ryder star in director Tim Burton's comic twist on supernatural horror tales--Beetlejuice. When a couple of nice, young homebody ghosts (Baldwin and Davis) try to haunt the pretentious humans who have moved into their house, they ask for help from a demonic wraith (Keaton) they cannot control in this comic fantasy that mixes the quick and the dead with a laugh and a fright.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Brilliantly bizarre and overflowing with ideas, Beetlejuice offers some of Michael Keaton's most deliciously manic work - and creepy, funny fun for the whole family.

Tim Burton tale creepy, dark fun; some violence, language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Beetlejuice is a 1988 fantasy that is darker than you may remember. There are some serious themes in this outrageous film: a young married couple comes to grips with the fact that they're dead, and a teenager contemplates suicide. Some of the imagery is pretty creepy, and there's some strong language (both "s--t" and "f--k" are used). There's smoking, drinking, and a reference to Valium. A miniature Beetlejuice finds a whorehouse in a model-sized city; some women invite him inside. Some sexual references and gestures. Beetlejuice kisses Barbara without consent and lifts her skirt to take a peek underneath. An afterlife waiting room abounds with people in various states of deadness, including some gory-looking ones that imply very violent deaths. Main characters are chased by giant striped worms in a desert. A character shrivels up like a mummy in a matter of seconds.
