Shadowdancer21b Good thing about the animated series was that (SHOCK) Tim Burton wrote several episodes!

Danny 4 Eyes I absolutely love this film, I pretty much love most Tim Burton stuff.

blacksamster Oh man!! I loved this so much when I was young (and now as well!). I, too, had a shrunken head Betelgeuse, and watched the awesome cartoon show. And I have a vague memory of singing "Beetle-juice is gonna get you!" to my little brother?

Riot.EXE I remember there were a couple Beetlejuice video games as well...one based on the movie, another based on the cartoon. The former sucked, never played the latter...

I still need to buy this damn movie though...

Nick Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian would be hilarious. In a bad way.

Rufus the Perturbed This is still one of my favorite movies. Unfortunately, the only toys I could ever find when I was little were Shrunken-Head Beetlejuice and Adam Maitland. Who the hell would pick a decapitated Alec Baldwin figure over a guy with a shrunken, spinning head? Wait a minute, decapitating Alec Baldwin sounds pretty good all of a sudden...

Mister Tea SunnyD: Oh, shit yes! I thought I was the only one who remembered the Beetlejuice toy line!

10,000 Volt Ghost Great movie. I've read up on "Goes Hawaiian" before. It sounded not so promising.

HowardC I've gotta disagree with the final score on this one. Should be a full 5/5. That feeling of "something missing" has been mis-interpreted and I can understand why as it rarely ever happens with a popular film. What is missing is more movie! In other words the film is so engaging you are left wanting more, which is the exact way a good film is supposed to make you feel.

SunnyD When I was a really little girl (at least 5 if not younger) this movie was my most favorite thing ever. and I watched that cartoon every day. Heck, I made my relatives call me "beetlejuice" instead. and one christmas, they gave me a beetlejuice toy where he's in that carousal form from the end of the movie with the giant mallot hands and it was the greatest thing ever.

TuxKamen From what I understand, the original script had alot less Betelgeuse (one or two scenes, I think) and was called "Meet the Maitlands". When Keaton proved popular in the role, they beefed it up for him. As for sequels, I know that it was one that's been tossed around for a while (along with Goonies). And Mr. m0nk3y, I've seen Christmas Vacation 2 and thought it was pretty funny, anything with Randy Quaid gets a good vote from me.

Purple Man All the "afterworld" scenes make this movie. Personal fave : the shrunken head guy.
Feb 4th, 2009 08:03 PM
s0n1c m0nk3y There was an existing sequel to Christmas Vacation where cousin Eddy goes to a tropical island. I'm sure you know of this, but I just had to point it out...

Tadao I know what you mean about the "something missing". Maybe it's that now a days it feels more family friendly and it's just not as creepy as it once was.

bountyhunterseven This was probably the first "DARK" comedy i has ever seen. It was disturbing and entertaining at the same time. im torn about a sequel...would love to have seen it, but glad they didnt.

Doctor_Who I loved this film when I was little. The cartoon series was also pretty freaking sweet, and much darker than most of the stuff on TV at the time.

And yeah, I can see how that sequel would have been a pretty bad idea.
