Beetlejuice Movie Review Summary

Actors: Michael Keaton, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Beetlejuice

A humourous horror/fantasy about life after death and how it really sucks. A couple, the Maitlands die in a car accident and are thrown into the very confusing afterlife, where appointments are made and handbooks given out. Their aim is to remove the new family living in their house as they are trapped in it for 125 years. Along the way are some excellent visual effects and eccentric characters and a bio exorcist who is crude, violent and wants out of the afterlife. A must watch for Tim Burton fans and any one with an interest to an alternate afterlife.
