Who doesn't adore this film? Michael Keaton is the perfect perverted creepazoid Beetlejuice who lives in a model city in the attic along with some ghosts who are having difficulty adjusting to the new tenants of the house...and to the fact that they are dead. The concept is fantastic, the characters are extremely memorable and extremely easy to like. Really every scene is unforgettable! The music was perfect, the cast was perfect, and it's actually hilarious and geared to most ages. The sets really must be seen, and the fact is this one goes all the way with concept, humour and the details in this one are fantastic. Not really a horror film to me, but certainly a highly recommended much loved classic.
