About

Beetlejuice is an American horror comedy film about a young couple who die in a car crash and come back as ghosts, haunting their old house and navigating the afterlife.

History

Beetlejuice was released on March 30th, 1988. The film stars Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis as Adam and Barbara, the ghost couple, Winona Ryder as Lydia, the teenager who befriends them when she moves into their old house, and Michael Keaton as Betelgeuse, the afterlife conman. On September 9th, 1989, an animated series of the same name premiered. The show ran for four seasons, concluding on December 6th, 1991.

Premise

Adam and Barbara, a married couple, live in a small town in an old but loved house. One day on their way home from some errands, their car falls into a lake and they both drown. They return to their house as ghosts, only to find a New York City artist (Catherine O'Hara), her husband (Jeffrey Jones) and her step-daughter (Winona Ryder) have moved in and completely remodeled it. At first the couple try to remove the family, seeking the help of their afterlife caseworker and trying to be scary, but eventually they befriend Lydia, and decide they'd rather co-exist. However, in the process of driving them out they strike a deal with Betelgeuse, a man trapped in the underworld who is trying desperately to escape. Though he tries to destroy Adam and Barbara in the process of getting free, they beat him and settle into life as kind of surrogate parents for Lydia.
