Critics reviews

Tim Burton finally fulfills the promise of Beetlejuice (1988) with this imaginative masterpiece, adapted from the 1964 children’s book by Roald Dahl but characterized by Burton’s special feeling for color, architecture, and nightmarish dislocation… There’s a streak of moralism, but it never becomes as sticky as the candy because the invention never flags.
