Episode #34: “Beetlejuice” (1988 film)

In this episode Mark talks about one of his favourite films: the 1988 American fantasy comedy film “Beetlejuice”, directed by Tim Burton. The film stars Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis as Adam and Barbara Maitland, a recently deceased couple who become ghosts that haunt their former home, who attempt to scare away the new residents of their house, the Deetz family – consisting of Charles, Delia, and Lydia (played by Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O’Hara, and Winona Ryder). But when the Maitland’s seek some assistance in scaring away the Deetzes they ask for help from an obnoxious and devious poltergeist named Betelgeuse/Beetlejuice (played by Michael Keaton), but unfortunately turns out to be more than both families can cope with.
