Decades before Winona Ryder burst back onto the scene to charm, frighten and disturb us as a justifiably spastic mother in Stranger Things, she played similar games with our emotive and mental states as Lydia Deetz, the anything-but-spastic, impressively impassive adolescent daughter of post-mortem sorts and dispositions in Beetlejuice, one of Burton’s greatest masterpieces that must be seen at least once, and that simply cannot be seen too many times.

An appealing mess… The pasteboard special effects, which have a special charm of their own, make up in verve and imagination what they sometimes lack in polish, and Keaton has such a time with his extravagant turn as a demonic hipster bum that one can forgive the less inspired contributions of Glenn Shadix, Sylvia Sidney, and Dick Cavett, among others.

Was sagen Andere darüber?

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    Between its irreverence and handcrafted phantasmagoria, it feels as though it were made by children—an endearing quality, just to be clear. The madcap energy that's emitted not only from Burton, but also Keaton and Elfman, gives this the vitality of a debut indie film by people eager to prove their worth and dish up something new. "Who even thinks of this shit?" was a thought that I couldn't shake while watching.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    It's halfway remarkable that a screenplay this free-wheeling, anarchic, and likely flawless was ever produced within the studio system - Warner Brothers must have thought they had another "Ghostbusters" on their hands, but "Beetlejuice" is anything but. The scene where Catherine O'Hara's macabre modern art sculptures come to life and imprison her has to be the most Burton-esque moment ever committed to celluloid.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    Hard to believe that such a chaotic, bizarre & utterly irreverent film could not only make an impact on the mainstream pop culture but turn its director into a household name. Featuring an antagonist who sexually harasses most of the main characters & aims to seduce a teen-girl protagonist obsessed with death wouldn't wash in today's climate, but finds context within the film's imaginatively grotesque phantasmagoria.

  • Z's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    I wish Tim Burton could recapture the sense of fun and play his early films had, this film being a prime example of that sense of wonder and play. Burton understood that Keaton was such a strong performer he should almost be utilized as a kind of special effect. Keaton exudes hilarious, twisted, rock star charisma as the "ghost with the most." The Calypso dance sequence is magic. A classic career high for Burton.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    Aesthetically and conceptually strong, and so unusual in both regards for 1988 that it attained minor classic status on those strengths alone. But as a narrative, it's a bit wobbly, with a hazily defined set of conflicts, rules, and motivations that put a damper on the set-design.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    This is a hilarious film and up there with Burton's greatest achievements. Michael Keaton is extraordinary here as well and Winona Ryder showed even at a young age that she is a great actress.

  • Daniel Roque's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    A Tim Burton classic featuring an all-star cast, with Michael Keaton providing one of his best performances. So kitsch, so surreal, so fresh to ear Harry Belafonte in a 80s movie.

  • mjgildea's rating of the film Beetlejuice

    Much more entertaining now seeing it as an adult. The performances (namely Catherine O'Hara) were funnier than I remembered, also. Beetlejuice is reasonable flawed but it beats the hell out of anything Tim Burton has done lately. And if nothing else Johnny Depp isn't in it and that's good enough for me.
