Beetlejuice (1988)

Directed by
Tim Burton

This horror comedy is a landmark film from director Tim Burton. On being killed in a car crash, Adam (Alec Baldwin) and Barbara (Geena Davis) discover they must earn their passage into Heaven by staying in their old home for the next 50 years.

There's one problem - they need to share their surroundings with repulsive Charles (Jeffrey Jones) and Delia (Catherine O'Hara) Deetz, who have moved in with their morbid teenage daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder). Adam and Barbara call in the amazing - but unstable - excorcist Betelgeuse (Michael Keaton, pictured) to rid their home of human pests.

Burton's follow-up to Pee Wee's Big Adventure made the public emphatically aware of his surreal, inventive style. The former Disney animator used an array of special effects, imaginative art direction and inventive make-up. These ingredients helped him achieve one of 1988's biggest box-office successes, and, in the process, stake his claim to being a major Hollywood player.
